Apr. 11 & Apr. 12, 2017
My first day in Quebec! I really enjoyed everything that went on, and got my first taste of the city. Me and my brother Travis prepare and get ready for the trip that awaits us, and at midnight on the 12th of April, we depart, and take the 10+ hour bus drive to Quebec City.
- Arriving in Quebec for the first time!
- Meeting our bus driver for the trip, John. He was super nice and friendly and went around with us, even off the bus.
- Meeting our tour guide, Annie. She lives in Quebec and knows the ins and outs of the city, and was very excited to show us around.
- Several walks around the city. We viewed historic landmarks and learned about the city’s history, as well as some beautiful architecture!

A McDonald’s near the U.S/Canada border
I ordered a sausage egg and cheese bagel – nothing fancy, but still something I’d never tried before.
Paillard, a café and bakery popular in Quebec city.
I ordered a ham and cheese Quiche with a Caesar salad on the side.
Au Petit Coin Breton
I got vegetable soup and a ham and cheese crêpe, not pictured above, unfortunately!
My favorite part of the day:
The beginning! It was really nice and had a good atmosphere. I got acquainted with and started talking to the guests and chaperones on the trip. There was Mr. Petit, my French teacher who I already knew; Ms. Strickland, the female chaperone and school Spanish teacher; John, the bus driver who would also be joining us on the trip; and Annie, the tour guide who helped us a lot throughout the whole thing. There was also Kevin, our roommate who is in a lot of the photos and videos that I took. And of course, the other wonderful people that went with us on the trip, most of which I met for the first time!
