St. Johns is a magical city! With unpredictable weather the wonderful capital of the peninsula of Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada is part of a spectacular memory. As part of a transatlantic cruise we were lucky to stop in this welcoming town, or should I say city? With its picturesque streets and its ups and downs ... Previously convinced that they were the center of the world, you can still see a map indicating this, and signs to the cities of Europe and the world! And also they are proud to have the most eastern point in North America ... A perfect start to seeing the kindness of Canadians! In less than five hours it rained, snowed, was cold, hot, sunny and we even had to retreat to the boat because of being pelted by hail! That enchanting harbor where all the boats make noises to cheer off visitors! I would definitely spend more time there!
