Well…you knew it was bound to happen. I wasn’t going to travel to my birthland and not write about it. I have to share with you some of the special events (yes…mainly food related!) And YES…there is 3 parts to my madness…I hope you enjoy every word of my little 11-day trip to my Canada 🙂
First let me tell you that I am not a world traveler but I am a seasoned packer. I like to pride myself in my limited yet “stylish” selection that can take me from day to night in any town across this beautiful world….this trip was the exception. OH MY WORD!
15 pairs of shoes, none matching any particular outfit. I ended up wearing my black flip flops, beige wedges and running shoes (only for exercising) the whole trip.
1 sports bra…I work out everyday! Brilliant!
3 face creams, no face wash…trip to the pharmacy!
you get the idea…I packed with a head full of thoughts and worries about my travel…not a good way!
Once we got on the road things seemed to calm down a bit. The girls were wonderful co-pilots and are extremely easy car riders. We arrived in Montreal late Wednesday only to turn around on Thursday and drive to Quebec City…more driving! We did however have a nice hair appointment before leaving Montreal courtesy of my mom.
Quebec City: interestingly enough (insert sarcastic tone) we got caught in a MAJOR traffic jam. Needless to say when you have lived in Montreal you have seen serious traffic…not usually in Quebec City…until we visit! My dad almost had a conniption! The girls and I kept a low profile in the back seat while my mom was (sadly) feeding the fury! In the end we all had a good laugh (sort of).
Thursday night we had a lovely dinner in Old Quebec City at Cafe de Paris (website). It was exactly what I was hoping for to welcome us into the city. I didn’t take pictures simply because it seems (so I was told) I was very annoying with my food picture taking. WHATEVER!
I shared a “Chateaubriand” with my parents. It was delicious!
The girls did take a picture of my mom and I at dinner:
Breakfast on Friday was at Delice (formerly known as Pizza Delice) the restaurant looked like a club! Very hip and modern…if you are into that kind of stuff…yes please read that I am not! I like more rustic and homey…really 😉 BUT the food was absolutely amazing!
Here’s the girls breakfast (they had the same thing)
My dad had boring eggs and bacon…boooorinnnnng 🙂
I will leave you with a few more pictures of the beautiful Quebec City.
Although this was the “beginning” and sad part of our trip, it truly hearth warming to be in the city where I was born.
Peace and Love Always,
