Despite the fact that we followed mainly the signed out tourist routes, we made also our own little trips. Sometimes the road just ended somewhere and we had to drive all the way back. We never regretted that. Nice scenery and tiny little places were the reward.
Most of the roads were paved and in good condition. Especially considering the size of this island and that it has only a population of around 500 000. But there are always people who can complain about everything.

Close to Brigus


Dildo - who gave this pretty village this name and why?

Harbour Grace - don't miss it!

We did not only visit the museum in Ferryland which shows an amazing variety of items which were found here - we also participated on a guided tour.
It was the first time that we could watch actual excavations and see how the findings were used to learn about the life the people who lived here once.
Don't miss a visit.
Just in time - Elizabeth started to shiver - we went indoors again and got a presentation about bread baking. Unfortunately, no samples were offered or hot tea with Screech.

I became hungry - seeing is OK, but testing it is better!

Jobs for Newfoundlanders

We love the life style in Newfoundland and I could live there. But Elizabeth does not like cold weather and we never experienced a winter here. Our first trip was in March and she did not complain at all at that time.
However, family reasons would not allow us to move there.

Harbors are always nice to visit

Back to the horror stories which heard from people who probably cannot find Newfoundland on a map. According to them you have to starve to death because of the food which they serve there.
It is true that the restaurants in Newfoundland do not advertise at all or they do not claim that everything what they offer is second to none. During all our trips we never got anything which we did not like or what was bad. The only exception are cot tongues which only Elizabeth tried. She will never do that again! I should have had my camera with me to show her face.
In the restaurant shown below the food was delicious, the service excellent and I got even a nice cup of ice cream which met almost European standards. See our travel guide for Thuringia to learn more about that.
Unfortunately the owner put this restaurant ion the market. So you will be too late to proof my statement.

We did not leave hungry.

We returned to Nova Scotia with the ferry which departs from Argentia. Elizabeth was reading or sleeping and I was counting every minute. It was long trip so I did lots of counting. The weather was not suitable to look for whales etc. and I was feeling like an astronaut on his way to Mars.
Elizabeth still wants to go on a cruise - what shall I do? Fortunately, we do not have the money at this time.
