It was the 70's and I had a hat with a huge pompom made of navy and kelly green phentex. I remember the clean crisp air, sleeping in a small inn called the Old Homestead Inn. Actually it is the Old Homestead Hotel on Ste-Anne Street accross fom the Chateau Champlain.
Fast forward a couple of years: My dad had a work conference at the Chateau Champlain and he took us. I remember thinking that it was not that luxurious and I was missing the Old Homestead!
Next door a guy was chain smoking cigars, the smoke was wafting through the communicating door...and you would hear the toilet flushing each and every time!
My favorite was to enjoy Quebec City is by walking along the steets of the Basse Ville (lower city) and Le Petit Champlain.
Le Petit Champlain is actually were the city of Quebec was first established.
It reminds me of Paris with snow.
my opinion is charming .
Everywhere you look are quaint little shops and restaurants.
I was pleasantly surprised!
Au Cochon Dingue (the crazy pig), the food was
great and affordable and you can read my review
in trip advisor.
it was clean and the staff friendly!
We're already plotting to go back! lol!
We will go back to Au Cochon Dingue and I will have the
Maple Glazed ribs with potato skins, oh yes!
Now time for Cuthroat Kitchen!
