The fateful sinking of the Titanic marks its 100th anniversary this week. As Leonardo DiCaprio taught us, the ocean liner crashed into an iceberg right off of Newfoundland in 1912. We recently visited the Canadian island, but we didn’t climb the bow of a ship and declare ourselves the king of the world. Instead, we combed the Newfoundland coast hunting for icebergs. Every spring and early summer, locals scour the coastline in hopes of spotting the massive chunks of ice that float down from the Arctic. Some take boat tours, and others kayak to get up close. We were on foot in Quidi Vidi Village, a quaint fishing village just outside St. John’s, when we found these smaller bergs. They wouldn’t do much damage to a ship like the Titanic, but they were a sight to see.
