I flew back to Toronto last month to attend Paul’s cousin’s wedding in Kingston. They had this amazing pie instead of a wedding cake and we cruised into the sunset through the 1000 Islands.

But before the festivities, I booked a trip to Quebec City with my sister Amy and spent a fun week eating and exploring our way through La Belle Province and even stopped at this unique spa on a boat on our way home. Quebec City is currently ranked the no. 1 destination in Canada by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine and the walled city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure. Here are a few of our travel tips for Quebec City:

Quebec-Bridge

Getting There – From Toronto there are direct flights on Porter and Air Canada. Otherwise, you can connect from any other city via Montreal. Honda Canada was nice enough to lend us a brand new Honda CRV, so we chose to make a sisters road trip out of it. We left at around 10 AM after the traffic died down and the drive takes about 9 hours. We took our time, made lots of stops along the way including:

WIN a NOKIA Lumia 1020 Phone – 41 Megapixel Camera!

I have started traveling with my DSLR camera less and less these days and I’m loving my new Nokia phone.

My DSLR can get clunky and takes up a lot of precious space in my carry-on bag when I’m on assignment for a travel article. Recently, I’ve begun to rely more and more on my smartphone for my travel posts. It’s handy, compact, easy-to-use and the pictures are high-quality.

So I was SUPER excited when Nokia introduced their Lumia 1020 phone with a 41 MEGAPIXEL camera and optical image stabilization for the sharpest images possible. Remember when your old point & shoot only went up to 20 megapixels? Now anyone can take high-quality images without the complexity of a fancy camera.
