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:


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:


A visit to The Big Apple in Cobourg (more…)

I’m Heading to Quebec City!


I’m packing my bags and heading to the airport today because I’m off to Quebec City!

Yes, there are some nervous butterflies about getting on an airplane that I talked about recently – but I’m hoping that I can get it under control and not let it overshadow this girls getaway with my sister Amy. I’ll be landing in Toronto first, then picking up our sweet ride – a Honda CRV from our friends at Honda Canada and then making the 8-hour road trip with stops along the way to Quebec City.

One of my first stops will likely be a St. Hubert’s for their chicken + Chez Ashton’s for their poutine!
