Eric Roberts, formerly of Hare Bay, Newfoundland, took an old copy of Downhome, along with a recent issue of another great Downhome publication, Gatherings, on a cruise of Antarctica in February 2008.

Though Downhome is a celebration of Canada's East Coast lifestyle, the magazine travels all over the world, to loyal readers who live or travel abroad.

A Bit of Newfoundland in Disneyland
"This is a photo of our daughter Brittany enjoying a little read from our Downhome while visiting Mickey and Minnie last. There is usually a bit of a contest between Brittany and her dad to see who can finish the word games first!"

Seeing the World
My family & I just returned from an amazing adventure through Singapore & India. This experience will last a lifetime. I wondered, "How did a small town girl from Musgravetown end up in a place like this?" I travelled there and took my Downhome with me. After I finished reading it I left it at the resort to share with others. I cannot explain to you this beautiful country of India; I had goose bumps when I first glanced at the Taj Mahal."
