Quebec: A Photo Essay

Image
Excited to see snow for the very first time. Frozen Quebec bird’s eye view.

For our very first snow experience, we decided to visit the coldest place on earth. Well maybe not, but to me, it seemed like it was.

A good friend, Quebec’s snow carnival and dog sledding were the main reasons why we decided to visit in February, right smack in the middle of winter season!

It was minus 30 that day. And oh, don’t forget the wind chill factor too!

Six days in Quebec was enough for this Florida girl. I think I’ve braved enough below zero temps, bone chilling winds, close-to-frost-bite-feeling-on-my-fingers-and-toes, and tried the popular “heart attack in a bowl” local dish. I might be back to visit this lovely city with the old European feel and summer time is definitely the way to go!

    1. I am glad my photos does that to you. I write mostly to express myself and somehow when it ends up inspiring others in whatever form, I am happy. I try to travel as much as we can while we can still do it. As much as I would want it to be a long term kind of travel, it would just be impractical at this point for my hubby and I. Don’t be jealous, I do not have the perfect life! πŸ™‚ I only try to deal with what God has given me/us in the most positive and impactful way I can. Thank you so much for your kind words!

        1. Oh my! No, I haven’t really thought about that as I don’t consider myself a “seasoned traveler”. We love to travel but I am afraid or maybe not confident enough to give away travel tips to the public. hehe. But I am so humbled and flattered at the same time that you think that I can do it. Now that you mentioned, I will add that to my list of posts to do. I will do my best! πŸ™‚
