Dani spoils me and visits me often so every time she comes we try and see something new alongside all the mall sightseeing we do. This time around we planned a train trip, originally we wanted to hit 3 cities: Quebec City, Ottawa and Montreal but we narrowed it down to two and that was ideal with more time in each one rather than rushing it. I loved my first train experience in Canada. It makes traveling so much more comfortable. We spent 3 days in Quebec City in a nice Bed and Breakfast La Victorienne Urbaine where every morning we would get herbal teas picked by the owner herself, we had a lovely lunch at Aux Anciens Canadiens, walked around the city centre every day, enjoyed the Marché du Vieux-Port and one rainy day we found a Winners and visited it.
We stayed in a Hostel, which wasn’t as cosy as our Quebec City BnB but it was near the student quarter so a great location to walk around. Considering I was 3 months pregnant during this trip I was quite proud of how much walking we did. We went to the Botanical Garden, an impressive light show by Aura at Notre-Dame Basilica, Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal , and to top it all off a fabulous Portuguese meal at Taverne F.
