Not quite at the international date line, Cape Spear is the most easterly point in Canada and will therefore be first in Canada to greet the new year. It is also at Cape Spear in St-John’s that you will find the oldest surviving light house in Newfoundland and Labrador built in 1839. I’ve been to St-John’s very briefly and found it beautiful. It was during a snow storm and the kind gentleman who had waited past closing time for me at the car rental because my flight was delayed gave me some helpful advice: avoid the highway late at night to avoid any unplanned encounters with moose on the road – it felt very Canadian. So here’s wishing you a very Happy New Year from eastern Canada! May 2015 be filled with more travel adventures! Happy travels!
