    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: warm clothing, good wet weather gear essential. but don't forget your T-shirts either

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: when high humidity, the blackflies can make life hell, if you have skin problems, check out at the chemist which repellent might work for you.

    Miscellaneous: the fog is a very frequent visitor here and it can be very cold and wet one day and very hot the next. so pack accordingly.

    All weather clothes!!

    Luggage and bags: your basic rollerboard or bag

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack for all seasons since New Foundland can be beautifully sunny and warm, then chilly, rainy and windy the next day. Sweaters, windbreaker, long sleeve shirts, comfortable walking shoes, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, lip baum, sundresses, nice attire for dinners at formal restaurants, otherwise jeans, shirt and a nice jacket is fine too!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: local pharmacies and stores can take care of most of your needs. Bring your own prescription medication to last you.

    Photo Equipment: film/batteries/disposable cameras cost about the same here if not cheaper because of the US dollar.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Be knowledgeable about the possible weather at the time of the year in which you plan to travel. Snowstorms can occur well into spring. The temperature in Labrador can fall to around -37 degrees Celcius without the windchill. With the wind chill it can feel like -65 Celcius. Exposed flesh can freeze in under a minute. In the summer temperatures can soar to plus 37 Celcius. Coupled with the humidity and the blackflies you can be in a different kind of hell.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: People talk about Vancouver and the west coast but St. John's gets its share of rain as well. You should be prepared for that reality. Newfoundland is not neccessarily tropic. Exotic maybe!
