A Travellerspoint blog

Introducing My New Blog

I was to leave on May 4 for my annual "trip of a lifetime", this one was to be a 35-day trip to Russia and Mongolia, all by train. Of course, that trip is not going to happen for a long time, if ever. Instead I am staying home.

Home is Pouch Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador, where our town moto is that we are “The First to See the Sun”, a somewhat bold declaration since we are not quite the most eastern point in North America (and always ignoring Greenland, geographically part of North America, but considered part of Europe due to its Danish ties). But we are on the edge of the continent, next stop Ireland.

Because I will have no trip to write up this year for my main blog, I have decided to create a new blog about the lighthouses of Newfoundland and Labrador. Since coming to Newfoundland in 2006, I have become quite intrigued by lighthouses. Often, they have interesting shapes, especially if the original structure has been maintained, but almost always they are in beautiful locations, next to cliffs, looking out the Atlantic Ocean. And since this is about Newfoundland and Labrador, it is a guarantee that the journey to find them will have passed through some spectacular scenery.

Good idea to find something closer to home to blog about. When I've finished my current trip (blogging about it, I mean - clearly I'm not on a trip right now!), I plan to write up some old ones but I could also perhaps add more about London
