We spent Christmas in Montreal and decided to go explore Quebec city for 2 days. It took me a long time to post these pictures, it was wayyy before the winter hit us up! The capitale of Quebec is located 2 hours west from Montreal and the road was flat and quite boring… But Quebec City is a lovely town up on a rock, by the Saint Laurent River, a powerful river that allowed the French pioneers to settle here a few centuries ago! American friends in Boston are obsessed with Quebec city because it’s like a piece of Europe in northern America. Is it true? What did we see?

“La tire d’érable”: warm maple syrup is poured over ice, and after 60 seconds, it’s drawn over a stick. Absolutely delicious.
Old Quebec City
We took the ferry to Levis, just to have this gorgeous view of Quebec city…
