Jessica & Svea on Tour – Educators as Explorers

While you may have never thought about circumnavigating Newfoundland (or maybe you’ve never even heard of it), Newfoundland and the surrounding islands are chock full of culture, history, geology, geography, and ecology–essentially an educator’s paradise.  We (Svea and Jessica) were fortunate enough to partake in a Lindblad expedition to this lesser-known destination as National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions Grosvenor Teacher Fellows. Over the course of nine days, we visited two countries, three provinces, and numerous amazing historical and cultural locations.

We’re excited to share with you, over the next ten days, our top ten reasons why you, too, should visit this area of the world.
