What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections? How easy/difficult is it to travel to this city/country?
Pittsburgh, PA is "home." It's roughly an 18-hour drive or two 2.5 hour flights, give or take. It's rather simple to drive from Pittsburgh or Washington, DC. Day 1 - Drive to Portland, ME. (11-12 hours) Either take the ferry from Portland or drive over to New Brunswick (2 hours) and cross the border in Calais. It's another 6 hours from the border to Halifax. - Sep 2020
Seattle, WA/USA. Halifax is about a 1 1/2 hour flight from New York or Boston. Have to connect through either of those two cities, or via Toronto of Montreal. Halifax is further away than people realize. If driving, it's a good six hours after you hit the Canadian border. Plan on nine hours of driving from Portland, ME. Keep in mind that Halifax is further east than Bermuda and one hour ahead of the U.S. East Coast. - May 2018
Only one direct flight to Washington, DC, so with a change of planes in NYC it's probably around 3 hours. - Feb 2010
