Hi! Well if you are planning on travelling through Newfoundland then the best plan would be to take the ferry from North Sydney, NS to Port aux Basques, NL on your way here.
L'anse aux meadows would definitely be a great spot to check out (shame on me for never having been there ... haha, I really need to go experience my own province), but would certainly add some extra days to your experience ... although, if you are going to Gros Morne, you have to sort of head up that way anyway.
Coming back, if you are planning on visiting St. John's then I would definitely recommend leaving from Argentia ... that way you don't have to go all the way across the island again. Argentia is about 1.5 or 2 hrs in car, which is a lot better than 10-11 (which is how long it takes to drive from Port aux Basques to St. John's). The ferry is longer, but at least you get a break from the drive.
I am a wealth of knowledge on the ferry system! Haha! Gotta know it to get out of here lol!
If you have anymore q's just let me know :)
A cross-Canada trip is definitely a dream of mine! If only I had the $$$ to do it... maybe someday!
