Quebec city was my last stop on the east side of Canada and was just as beautiful as the 2 French city’s previously, however the buildings here just seemed to have that little bit more granditure to them with the new buildings still being cladded with copper roofs to blend in well with the rest of the environment.
On a side note to the above statement, there would be not roofing left on any of the buildings if they did this where I live in England, it would all be stolen and sold for scrap.
Anyway, the hostel was nothing to rave about but was good enough to sleep in and was in good location to everything. It was just a 10-minute walk to the greyhound and rail station and a 15minute walk to the old town Quebec City and the rest of the main attractions there. My first point of call for the day was to head to the waterfall … this was about a 40-minute bus ride out of the city on bus number 800, the bus stop was just outside the hostel and runs along the main street so you’ll easily be able to find it. The bus finishes its service where you want to get to the falls and then its a short walk to the main bridge and lookout points of the falls, you can walk all the way to the bottom if you wish but I didn’t that meant a lot of stairs back to the top you see. I have been told the falls looks much better at winter when its all frozen over and you can climb it. The bus here is $3.50 each way and from when you get your ticket to when you’re done at the falls means you will need to buy a return and not be able to use the same ticket, the bus comes every 9minutes. Once I got back to the city I spent my day walking around the old town and across the boardwalk to the planes or Abraham where the battle for Canada by the English and French took place. We, the English
Once I got back to the city I spent my day walking around the old town and across the boardwalk to the planes or Abraham where the battle for Canada by the English and French took place. We, the English won of course. I ended up spending way too much on food here as I had food to eat but I wanted to try poutine in a real restaurant and not just a fast food shop and I wanted another beavertail before I leave Canada,then to top it off I say a place selling real maple taffy made over ice/snow so I had to get some obviously. Food is my weakness unfortunately especially the fast and sugary kind that I’m sorry both Canada and the USA are well known for. This just meant that I’ve walked everywhere instead of getting transport if I can help it and not eating so much junk in the next country.
Apart from wandering the streets and taking lots of pictures of buildings and eating, of course, that’s is pretty much my day summed up, I did meet a girl and we ended up having a pint of cider in this brewery not far from the hostel, my first bought alcoholic drink since Bali can I just say.
