St. John was obviously a popular chap in these parts as evidenced by the fact that two cities in Atlantic Canada bear his name. This is St. John’s, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, as opposed to the St. John that can be found in New Brunswick.

Located on the eastern tip of the Avalon Peninsula, St. John’s is the easternmost point of North America and is also the oldest town founded by the English on the continent. It is perched on the steep slopes of the harbour and features multi-coloured row houses lining the local streets in a manner that some have suggested is reminiscent of San Francisco.

However, this is a million miles (or 1.6 million km) from California and not just in terms of the climate. Newfoundland in general and St. John’s in particular retains its historical standing as the centre of the local English colony but also revels in its small-town appeal. It is no surprise then that many visitors arriving on cheap flights to St. John’s choose to use the city as a base while getting to know the surrounding area including the Witness Bay Ecological Reserve and Cape Spear.
