Now that I have gotten settled back in from MY incredible road trip, & have a moment or two before my own stolen towels need to be tossed in to the dryer, I know you’re all anxiously awaiting the results of my cheer weekend…right Cheryl??!! Surprisingly, despite living a mere 4 or 5 hours away from Quebec my entire life, it has only ever served as a means to an end…I have to drive through it to get to the east coast! Which I have visited more than a few times, & was even a homeowner in Nova Scotia briefly. But aside from my Gr. 8 trip to Quebec City (which I loved for the history, even at that age!), it just never held any real appeal for me. For those who aren’t aware, Canada has spent many decades dealing with infighting amongst ourselves, with Quebec fighting for the right to stand alone. I had numerous preconceived notions about what to expect from Montreal, including my inability to speak the language. I was pleasantly surprised to have them all shattered after an amazing weekend in La Belle Province!
