Travel: Quebec City

We took a charter bus from Montreal to Quebec City, and while efficient, I must say the three hour ride was one of the dullest I have ever seen. Nothing but plains and tiny little nondescript towns every hour or so.

That said, Quebec City itself was gorgeous, and our tour guide excellent. The city itself is fairly large, with some beautiful sites – namely the Citadel, Notre Dame des Victoires and Old Town, whose fortified walls still stand. The Petit Champlain district is one of the oldest shopping districts, and the streets were picturesque. If you are ever in the area, it is worth a day trip. We also got to stop off at Montmorency Falls which is taller than Niagra Falls by 100 feet. Everything was easily accessible by foot, and there was much to buy and eat.
