Kissing Cod & Drinking Screech in Newfoundland

Two years ago I found myself in a crowded St. John’s pub, standing in a bucket of water, speaking Gaelic, kissing a 100-year-old cod named Sheamus, and drinking a shot of Newfoundlandian rum called Screech.  To find out why:  Check out my guest post on as I recount my trip to the eastern most point of North America, the island of Newfoundland, where ice burgs and whales migrate south just off shore, puffins play in the bays, Viking culture still rules the land, the locals speak their own dialect, clocks are 1 1/2 hours later than Eastern Standard Time, and for over 250 years salt cod has been traded for Jamaican rum that could peel the chrome off your car’s bumper.

Let’s get Screeched-In!
