my trip to quebec city

...what a busy couple of weeks I've had! sorry you haven't heard from me in a while and thanks to grace for keeping up with our petite blog. i went to Quebec city with my mom in early to mid february. what a beautiful city, i had never been! i ate a few yummy crepes, practiced my français a bit and saw a lot of snow. glad i wore my winter boots since there's no need for them here in boston... hope you enjoy a few highlights of my winter get-away.

...we stayed in the heart of old quebec city at le château frontenac which overlooked the st. lawrence river.

...we explored old quebec city a lot on the first day with its narrow roads and old stone buildings. we even went on a horse drawn carriage ride!

...we saw a haute couture exhibit with pieces ranging from 1947-1957 and it was fabulous! dior, givenchy, chanel, oh my! (i wasn't allowed to take pictures...)

...ate in some cool restaurants

...and had a few bol de café

...and one of the most interesting things was visiting an ice hotel. we weren't adventurous enough, but some people actually do spend the night! plus i got to roll up *and eat* hot maple syrup on snow, a winter tradition.
