      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.)

      ... with large groups of tourists. We loved the place despite that. Gorgeous little cobbled streets full of shops selling art and everything a tourist could want. Discovered a fur and skin shop where they had a complete polar bear skin - cost $20,000 - and the lady told us they sell, on average one a year, always to Chinese! We went up on the funicular and walked past the Le Chateau Frontenac, built as ...

      Free time in Canada with my friends

      ... particularly the Chateau while on the ferry. Levis didn’t seem like much when we got there, just like a small residential area on a hill. However, there is a nice park with a great view out onto Quebec, so Amanda and I bought a picnic lunch from a shop there and ate at the park while admiring the view. Then we went to the Museum of Civilisation, which was pretty cool. We were more interested in the exhibits that weren’t about Canada’s history, though it was good ...

      What is HOME ?

      ... a place where you feel comfortable and relaxed

      Homesick : if you feel unhappy because you are far away from home and are missing your family, friends and home very much.

      For my part, I feel like being at home at the moment I step in a developing country.... There it's my place.

      My bestie and I made a day trip to Quebec City from Montreal. All in a day we were very lucky to see so many beautiful sights: - Chute montmerency (waterfall) and surrounding park with beautiful autumn leaves at the time - Cafe Baude - Chateau Frontenac (majestic and nice views) - Petit Champlain - Ferry ride on St Lawrence river The lunch that day afforded us with cheese baguettes, olives, cranberries and yellow ground ...

      ... one block and surrounds the Hotel. The streets of the City are cobblestone and there is every type of restaurant that you could want or imagine. We planned a day and a half for touring and that proved to work out well. We roamed the streets and even split up for a short time. Jim took pictures and I checked out the stores and the artists booths. The most unique area seemed to be the lower city. The design was more like a ...
