What do you think of when you think of Canada? If you think of snow, maple syrup, amazing food, and incredible hospitality, then look no further than Québec City.
I’m currently on a 10 day vacation visiting my boyfriend J’s hometown, and I have to say, it’s like a little piece of Europe right here in Canada. Houses built back in the 1600s, fortification walls built to protect the city from invaders, and even a massive basilica (aka a big church) can be found here.
I have eaten tortiere (it’s kind of like a meat pie), moose fondue, and maple taffy on snow (tire d’érable en français). J has promised to take me for poutine soon because you can’t get more Canadian than that.
I have seen snow drifts that are nearly as high as the roof of a house and today we’re partaking in a very popular pastime here in Québec: snowmobiling. It’s been nearly 20 years since I’ve been on one of those things and that excursion ended when I almost broke my nose when my face smashed into the back of my friend’s helmet. I’m hoping for a better outcome today.
I need to get my photos downloaded off my camera, so in the meantime I will use the pictures off my phone to show you some of the scenery.
