    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.)

    ... day, then went to the coach. For dinner we went to a place called a buffet of the world. A buffet that had a lot of food – nothing special here, just a buffet, wen we back to the hotel after dinner and went to a bar down the road from the hotel. This bar was called the Vegas bar. We had some drinks, talked and tried to dance, but the music was ****. At around midnight as the bar was closing up we went back to the hotel and went to ...

    ... was $65, no services.) We stayed in the parking lot of the old Quebec Zoo, now closed (sad story - google its history). By 2 pm, we had paid our fee, dumped our tanks, and filled up with fresh water. A friendly Québécois (local) in an RV came over and guided us through the process, even telling us what number bus to take to town, and where to get on. We love it when a plan actually works!

    We were on the bus heading to the old city with no real clue ...

    We awoke late and decided to miss breakfast and grab an early lunch in town. But before lunch we strolled around Place Royal in the lower town area and took the Funicular up the escarpment to visit the Quebec Cathedral where the bells were tolling. It was really enchanting with all the white snow every where. We then discovered the Mussee de L'Amerique Francaise housed in the old Quebec Seminary (Seminaire de Quebec) located close to the famous ...

    ... in the Art Deco style, but the sloping roof made it feel very small. [We did wonder at this point if the prices on Booking.com reflected the 'hard to shift' rooms.] After dropping packs freshening up we went for a walk to locate the nearest supermarket. Dinner that night, as were all our dinners in Quebec, was a picnic in our room. At least the view from the small window was nice, horse-drawn ...

    Obviously I could go on all night..... let's just leave it at.... so perfect.

    Tomorrow night we will be in New Brunswick at Kouchibouguac National Park on the Atlantic Ocean, just opposite the western most tip of PEI. Then 3 days in the Halifax area. So probably no internet for 4 days. We'll just keep racking up the stories and the memories.
