Want to make some posts in thread about particulary interesting random places I accidentaly found on mapOverseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon
This couple of tiny islands, which located directly south from Canadian island of Newfoundland. This basicly all what remaind of previously very big french colonial territory in North America, known as Nouvelle-France.
There a couple of historical things happened on this islands, like for example in 1778 this islands was attacked by British Empire for France Support of American revolution and they returned under French jurisdiction only after Napoleonic wars. During 2nd world war they was under vichy goverment, but in end of 1941 there landed troops of Free France and after some sort of plebiscite, islands obviously become part of Free France movment.
Most populated island is more small south one, Saint Pierre with city of same name with population around 5456 people. In island Miquelon there are around 624 people. And bigger twin island, and smaller one have their own Airfields.
This is a cool streetview of Saint Pierre city street near sea, as you can see, a lot frech flags, and while there some numbers of american cars, more cars are actually european, paticulary obviously french. Numberplates is Frecnh standart, but I see some north-american sized plates on some cars.https://email@example.com,-56.1732741,3a,60y,52.65h,89.31t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sF0RHoDK-zz9qC5y6HPFfMA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=ru&authuser=0
Winter there looks like not that hard for a russian, but I suspect there high humidity and windy because well, this is islands in ocean, and not biggest ones. I wonder how there with internet (probably okay, since it's near big canadian island which very close to continent, so this is not just 2 drops of rocks in open ocean)
They also have kind of wierd water economic zone around them https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/79/Saint-Pierre_and_Miquelon_EEZ_map-en.svg/960px-Saint-Pierre_and_Miquelon_EEZ_map-en.svg.png
