Be a Tourist at Home – Brigus Edition

I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s pretty easy to get a case of the extended winter blahs. I have a love/hate relationship with my province, in that it is spectacularly beautiful, but at the same time very finicky when it comes to the weather.

With our spring feeling more like late fall, myself and two friends were dying for a bit of fresh air and sunlight, so we decided to take a brief day trip to a small town about an hour from where we live.

We chose Brigus because Shane had never been there before. He fell in love with it right away. Brigus is one of the oldest settlements on the island of Newfoundland and although I didn’t get any great pictures of the town centre, it’s definitely worth a visit to see the vibrantly coloured houses and small quaint streets.

For me, it was just what I needed for a little introspection. The blue sky, fluffy clouds and rugged landscapes reiterated what I love about this big province and just put me in the best of moods.

Sometimes a trip doesn’t have to be fancy and elaborate, just getting out of your normal zone for a few hours does the body and mind good.

Please note that all we’re taken on an iPhone 5S with no filters or editing applied. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
