Tiny Travelogue: Quebec City

Quebec City

Location: Quebec City, Quebec

Length of Trip: Two days, one night (May 2013)

Purpose of Trip:  Official Librarian Business (ie. travel for work)

Method of Transportation:  Airplane

Food: When traveling, I usually try to scout for restaurants in advance.  Being a non-meat eater does prove to be a bit restrictive at times, so I like to find a few options in advance.  I also really hate walking around trying to find somewhere to eat, especially when I’m hungry.  Unfortunately, the restaurant I had pre-selected in Quebec decided to close the day before I arrived, unbeknownst to me.  So I ended up wandering around and just picked the first place that was 1) not too expensive 2) had a veggie option 3) wasn’t just a sandwich place.  I ended up eating at La Piazetta.  It was just okay.  Nothing spectacular, but no complaints either.  I also obtained a snack from a little grocery store called La Carotte Joyeuse.  I highly recommend getting food at a grocery store when traveling – you can usually find something cheap and healthy, especially if you just want a snack like fruit or a cookie (my snack exactly, actually).

Accomodations:  I stayed at Le Grande-Allee Hotel and Suites.  It had the feel of a B & B, but with all the privacy and amenities of a regular hotel.  My room was really cute.  It had a little fireplace and a huge spa bathtub.  The tub was in the main part of the room, rather than the bathroom, so as you can imagine, I ate my dinner in the tub while watching TV.  I really had no choice.

Highlights:  This trip was quite short and mostly spent doing work-related things (it was a business trip after all), so I didn’t really get to do anything fun.  I’d say the highlight of the trip was the hotel!  I’d also recommend walking around the old part of the city.
