Whether you are exploring big-city fun, rugged mountain adventures, relaxation on the beach, or anything; you would want to be sure you have a good pair of shoes. Having a good pair of shoes will make traveling more enjoyable. You can easily walk 5-10 miles when visiting a city and even spending a few hours in a museum can do a number on your feet.
Are you looking for a couple’s weekend getaway? In your day to day busy-ness there is much to desire with time away from everything and everyone. Yes that includes the kids as well. We were fortunate to be able to get away for a few days of just the two of us to reconnect and re-shift the focus to us.
We were so excited to experience La Grande Roue de Montréal during our recent visit to Old Montréal. Located right on Old Port where all the action is at, this was the perfect place to be. La Grande Roue is a climate-controlled as well as the tallest observation wheel in Canada. Allowing visitors to see the city and its beautiful surrounding in a 360 panoramic view from 60 meters in the air, which is equivalent to a 20 story building. On a clear day, visitors can see 28 km away.
On our last stop in our recent 11 Day Road Trip in Canada, we stopped in Quebec City. If you have not been to Quebec City, you have GOT to put this on your list.
We were fortunate to stay at Delta Hotels by Marriott Quebec. Located in Downtown Quebec, within a few minutes walk to most attractions and in particular, nearby Old Quebec City, it was the perfect place to be.
During our trip to France last spring, my carry-on bag busted at the wheels and zippers making it a bit difficult. Fortunately for us, we were visiting family there so we were able to “borrow” one of their suitcases to help us get through our trip. I believe their suitcase is still sitting in my basement. I may have to send it with my mother-in-law when she goes for a visit in a couple of weeks. While I have been meaning to purchase a new one, there are just so many options out there that I just couldn’t decide.
Going on a road trip with the boys are so much fun! Road trip typically consists of many stops and long stretches of driving that we weren’t sure how our boys would be able to handle it. I wasn’t sure how I was going to handle it as well. However, we all survived (barely) and had a blast! I would not have changed anything about it and would do it all over again.
