I just added a countdown clock (over on the right side of my main page, under my blurb) for our upcoming trip to July. However, I don't yet have much in the way of travel plans to share. All I know so far is that we are...
...going for two weeks in July. We are taking an overnight Friday ferry to get there, but not yet sure what day we're coming back.
...staying at Valerie's house, the exact location of which still remains a mystery to me. Hmm, maybe this is a test to see just how good my stalking skills are...although truth be told, I'm pretty sure I could find it on my own!
...going to have an awfully hard time trying to keep track of who's who in Valerie's confusing and sprawling extended family. I may have to adopt that Newfoundland thing of calling everyone "my love", simply because I won't remember their names! lol Especially since Valerie keeps forgetting that I don't know everyone so doesn't always do introductions. Not that I'm complaining, it's actually pretty cool that she thinks of me as already knowing everyone in her life!
...all planning to camp at Gros Morne for a couple/few days. And planning to climb Gros Morne mountain itself - what marvellous views we should have from there, of the mountain, the fiords, the ocean...sigh. After that day's hike, look for us in the nearby 25 person hot tub!!
...all incredibly excited about this trip, especially me because it's my first time to visit Newfoundland and I can't wait to see this beautiful province. Everyone I know says it is absolutely gorgeous (and it does seem like everyone I know has been to Newfoundland so it's about time I get to experience it too!) One girl in my office said "once you've been there, you'll never want to leave!" (Uh oh, if that's the case, I better warn Valerie that she might not be able to get rid of me!)
...so looking forward to sharing all this wonderful time together away from work :)
Here are some photos from last summer when M went with Valerie's family to Newfoundland. I think I posted some of these before, but they're all I've got until I have some photos of my own to share...and you know I'll come home with hundreds of my own photos!! ;)
