Hi From Fogo Island, Newfoundland!

Just wanted to take a moment to say Hi! I live on a very scenic and remote island an hour ferry ride off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. I am 51 years old, married, overweight, and have just learned that I have high cholesterol. I figure it's high time I got myself back into shape, though it will be a challenge, as I am unfortunately disabled with spinal issues. When I am not bedridden with back/neck pain, I enjoy nothing more than to get outside and explore this beautiful island that I am so proud to call home. I am an avid nature/landscape photographer, and a collector of vintage cameras. And of course I am looking forward to making new friends here!

    Hi from Ontario! We have spent a week touring the Rock and it is truly amazing! Strongly recommend everyone visit. Gros Morne should be on everyone's bucket list. We hope to go back one day to see the icebergs. We would also love to ski Marble Mountain. I am always looking for new MFP friends so feel free to add me. Jerry

    I'm not from Canada, but I spent the better part of my summers in Nova Scotia my whole childhood and have been to all the Martime Provinces except for New Foundland! I'd love to go there some day. Also my grams was born on PEI and lived there during her childhood. I'm 30 but have suffered with back problems since age 22 (early arthritis). It can be a challenge to get moving when you are in pain. But I'm here to help for tips and tricks!
