A Week in Newfoundland

August 22, 2016 / by Liz

Late last week I returned to Paris after spending a lovely week at home in Newfoundland. For the first time since our move to France, when it came time to leave Newfoundland, I didn’t want to go. My trip home really couldn’t have been better – I got to spend lots of time with Mom and Dad, had some great motorcycle rides, saw so many friends, barbecued (okay, I didn’t actually do the barbecuing, but I was really good at eating it) and had cocktails on the patio, and to top it all off, the weather was awesome (which, if you know anything about Newfoundland, is not usually the case).

I really love living in Paris, and for a while I was a little concerned that I might never want to leave… but this last trip home reminded me how perfect Newfoundland is, and even though leaving Paris will┬ábe super tough, I know that when it’s time for us to move back home I’ll be excited to go.

Here are a few highlights from my trip!

6 - Knob Road

{Enjoyed an awesome meal in Grates Cove, at Grates Cove Studios. Pictured is the Seafood Jeon – so good. Also had the best chocolate molten cake of my life. I meant to take a picture, but devoured it instead.}
