It's Monday, so I thought I'd join Travis in a little Memoir Monday. Check out his page, then tell your own story!
Recently I found out that I love Quebec, Canada. To be fair, I've never been anywhere else in Canada. I might love the rest of it as well. But I definitely love Quebec.
We (the 3 boys, hubby and I) recently spent a week checking out this lovely province. We started our adventure by flying into Montreal. We bravely chose to ride the bus from the airport to the hotel since we'd managed to fit a week's worth of clothes for 5 people in one big suitcase and 5 carry-ons. All of a sudden I saw our hotel go by (there was supposed to be a stop right in front of it, but we didn't push the button in time). We immediately pushed the stop button, but the bus kept going and going. We had quite a walk back once we finally got off the bus!
But that was not an indicator of how the rest of the vacation would go. The hotel was lovely. The people were super friendly. And the city is beautiful! The old town has the feel of Europe. With narrow streets and close buildings.
After Montreal we took the train to Quebec City and stayed at "the Castle". (That's our hotel, the castle in the background).
We also loved Quebec City. What a cool place.
To make what could be a really long story short, we stayed in Quebec City a couple of days then rented a car and went into the Charlevoix region along the Fleuve Saint-Laurent to do some whale watching.
Here's Hubby and me on the whale-watching boat. We saw some minke whales and a bunch of belugas. I'd post pictures but, well, they just aren't that good. The white belugas came out looking like the white bellies of dead fish floating on the water. Oh, well.
Bottom line: I definitely would recommend Quebec as a vacation spot. The people are so friendly and the area is beautiful. We loved it. (I think I said that already!)
Thanks for stopping by. Go see Travis.
