NL Avalon Peninsula - Best Score "Top Rated" places - National Geographic Traveller Nov-Dec 2010

Wow ! - a lovely write-up re Newfoundland: Avalon Peninsula - best score of "Top Rated" places - in National Geographic Traveller Nov-Dec 2010 issue.

My first reaction was that this was great - then I wondered why they focused just on Avalon when all of Newfoundland and Labrador is remarkable for its people and its beauty.  I'm a "Come-from-away" who fell in love with NL back in 1981.
