Visiting Quebec City

Saturday, September 16

2017 was the first time in my almost twenty-four years of life that I have visited Quebec City. We stayed in Levis, Quebec and took the ferry across the river so that I could see just how beautiful the city was from the other side of the river. It did not disappoint. As soon as we got off the ferry and started walking through the streets I was in love. There were cobblestone walkways and brick buildings with art covering the whole side (I have included a picture down below of one of the buildings). There were cute little boutique shops and restaurants and decorations and string lights everywhere. It was like an old little European town had found its way to Canada. 

We walked around exploring for the whole day taking in the views, shops, and general atmosphere. We ate breakfast at a restaurant near Le Ch√Ęteau Frontenac, the giant hotel that you can see coming across on the ferry. We had gorgeous weather that day and we were able to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful views. Everything was just so pretty. I could have taken a picture at every turn but that would have taken up all the room on my camera, and it would have taken up all of Noah's patience with me - and he needed those for all the hills we had to walk up, I complained a lot.

This is one of my favourite places that I've explored. I love the small town feel; it reminds me Beauty and the Beast when Belle is walking down her village and singing with her head stuck in her favourite book - at a one point I was hoping there would be a fountain with some sheep nearby just for my own satisfaction, but alas that did not happen. Maybe someday when I return to Quebec City I will bring along a Belle costume. 
Until then, here are some photos that I took of beautiful Quebec City: 

Have you ever been to Quebec City? What is your favourite part or what would you like to do there?
