On Friday morning we visited Cape Spear, the easternmost point in North America (never mind that it’s on an island). This map I spotted at the site will give you an idea of just how far east we are.
We are only 916 miles from Greenland and around 1500 miles from Reykjavik, Iceland. In other words, closer to those two places than to Minnesota.
Oh, and we’re halfway to Ireland!
Too bad we can’t just keep on driving….
Do you feel really far away and isolated?
Reminds me of when I traveled with friends to Kashgar from Shanghai. The geography wonk amongst us pointed out that we were closer to Cairo than Shanghai while still within China! Fun with Geography!
I love geography, as you well know.
