      Truly a winter wonderland

      Nothing here was overstated. No touristy degradations designed to make money. The design was not infected modern rooms with all the amenities the discerning guest expects. This, in every sense of the words, was an Ice Hotel. The entire building-every wall, every entrance, hallway, room, the chapel, the entire bar, the seats, were out of ice and snow. The rooms themselves had a thin but very comfortable mattress on top of a solid bed of ice with lighting built into the base that you can switch on and off. An information session teaches you how to sleep in the rooms-which include the use of a negative temperature sleeping bag, where to put belongings to prevent freezing, etc. This session is mandatory, even for locals because-as the guide Sophie put it-when sleeping in a hotel of solid ice, you have to forget everything you know about staying in a hotel. The only belongings you really want to bring in the room with you are your boots, snow gear, and whatever you want to sleep in (they recommend synthetics, we used under armor-style thermals) any electronics have to be kept in the bag with you, and the rest, except boots, goes into a waterproof bag. The bathrooms nearest the hotel are essentially heated port-o-johns, so use the ones in the celsius building instead. How was the sleep? Amazing. Seriously. It's expensive yes, but people who didn't think it was worth the money, probably didn't spend the money. It is SO worth it. (note: the address they have listed here is incorrect. It is at the old zoo this year, in Quebec City. Also city bus 801 goes nearly right there and is only 3.00 a ticket, saves a lot vs. the shuttle.)

I was struggling to keep up with him on the way down before dropping him and Josh off for the afternoon lessons, unfortunately they got the same instructor - half way through they still weren't happy so I had a word with the chief instructor and they will have a different instructor tomorrow. So amazed at the boys ability to pick up skiing so quickly, I did some last runs ...

      We we found a restaurant/ bar right near the finish line. The race comprised of 18 laps x 11 kilometres. Sounds easy but you should have seen how steep some of the circuit was. To our surprise we discovered that Cadel Evans and Simon ...

      We decided to take the option of going for a visit to the Citadelle, at the top of cote de Ia Citadelle. We took a wrong turn (it was badly signed) at the top and were ...

To conclude, I think that this job and the fact that I am alone for one month will help me to discover myself and discover that I am able to do a lot more things that I think I am able to.

I took care of the route. Here's where my title comes into play. What was I thinking when the man told me we could bike to Mont Morency Falls? 1 hour there, 1 hour back. I don't ...
