    I read a few articles about him and no......it seems he just landed in one of the following...Labrador, Cape Breton or Newfoundland. He was looking for a northern route instead of the one Columbus took. Interesting, what little is known about him. Yes, born in Italy.....but went to Bristol because no one would give him money for the voyage in Spain or Portugal. No one seems to know when or where he died.

    Anyone have any info on Thomas Nicholl, erstwhile part owner of the Mayflower?
    Views of history: Two definition of insular
    1 Pertaining to an island. If you live in the British Isles, you can never get more than 100 miles from the sea.
    2 If you live in certain parts of the USA your nearest town can be 100 miles away.
    And there's Sebastian Cabot too.

    And Alice Springs is the closest town to every beach in Australia...check out where The Alice is. And if you live in certain parts of Australia you can be a lot more than 100 miles from the nearest town. Just have to make sure your little Cessna is fueled up.
