With over 18 UNESCO world heritage sites, Greece encompasses the birth of modern civilization.

Staying in an old Quebec monastery

Staying in an old Quebec monastery | My Wandering Voyage travel blog

There are dozens of hotels – and a couple of hostels – within the fortifications of Old Quebec City. Based on your level of comfort, these can be pricey, especially if you are travelling alone. During my four-day trip to Quebec, I leapt out of the box to stay at Le Monastere des Augustines, a hotel that was converted from an old monastery.

The hotel didn’t pop up on my first search for cheap hotels to stay in when I planned the trip. In fact, I was searching airline prices when I found a flight and hotel combo on Expedia. I had not heard of the place before, but I am so glad I found it.

What to eat in Quebec City

What to eat in Quebec City | My Wandering Voyage Travel Blog

The one thing I could not shut up about in Quebec City was the food. I don’t know what restaurant was my favourite because holy guacamole, they were all wonderful.

In truth, I did some research before I left for the historic city. I wanted to get an idea of where to eat in Quebec City. It’s what I do, I plan. But I ended up changing quite a few items on my itinerary, even the restaurants.

The great thing about travelling solo was I could eat wherever – I’m not picky – and eat when I wanted. Not hungry? Cool.

Don’t waste your vacation days, use them

Don't waste your vacation days | My Wandering Voyage Travel Blog

While the amount of time off depends on what country you work in and the company you work for, vacation days are essential for any traveller that still works full time.

While it may be the dream for some to be a digital nomad or a full-time traveller, for others, it’s just not possible. Especially, when you love your job, but still want to travel.

In Ontario, we have a mandated two-week vacation. That translates to 10 days in my job. How much of the world can you see in 10 days, you ask? Just enough to keep my travel bug bite satisfyingly itched.

Why you should explore Saskatchewan

Why you should explore Saskatchewan My Wandering Voyage

Everybody likes to joke about Saskatchewan – “You can watch your dog run away for three days!”- and most like to fly from eastern Canada to western Canada to avoid the long straight, flat prairies in between.

But if you step off the beaten path – aka The Trans Canada Highway – you discover a place far more complex than the reputation suggests.

From the gorgeous boreal forests that make up the northern half of the province to the roving grasslands of the south, Saskatchewan is full of surprises.

Whether you take the Yellowhead Highway, Red Coat Trail, or the Trans Canada Highway, there’s a lot to see and do in “the Land of Living Skies.”
