Here is how they get international mail to the tiny French overseas territory of St. Pierre et Miquelon, off the coast of Newfoundland – up and down one side of an Air St. Pierre flight from Halifax, taking up all but the front four rows of an eleven row ATR turboprop. The front galley was jammed full too, leaving room for 21 passengers among 44 seats. Click the photo to enlarge.
It’s been a good week as we’ve finalized some travel plans for June. As I wrote just down there, we’ll be in London for the British exit referendum and, as it’s just around the summer solstice, while we’re there we’ll take a trip out to Stonehenge. We’re also planning stops in the French territory of St. Pierre and Miquelon, just off Newfoundland in Maritime Canada, and in St. John’s, Newfoundland’s capital. Then we’re up to Reykjavik for Iceland’s National Day on 17 June, and while we’re so close, we’re planning our second visit to Greenland, this time to the east coast, to the town of Tasiilaq, noted on this Google map:
