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 for 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.
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.
What’s one new thing you would like to do this
year? For me, I’d like to see and photograph more night time sky phenomenon,
like the Milky Way and northern lights. The best way to do that is to visit one
of the many dark sky preserves in Canada.
2017 had a lot of ups and downs, but as we close the year off in hopes of a better one next year, it’s time to reflect on the experiences that made us happy. Here are my top nine travel experiences I had in 2017.
For the quintessential Maritime experience, look no further than Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The old town was built around the fishing and sailing lifestyle. Located on Nova Scotia southern shore, Lunenburg dazzles visitors with its brightly coloured hues and delicious fresh seafood.
