    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.)

No tabacco or nicotine - apparently there was hash in one of them but he wouldn't say which haha. We tried a few different flavours killing time until the station 4 show finished and we got a spot to watch from.
    The final station was some what of a circus type acrobatics theatre show. Very entertaining and pretty impressive. I think the idea of the show was that ...

    I hope you packed your walking thermals

    ... we ate like this down in the states (we don't). The place we are staying is almost directly next to the Chateau Frontenac, so the view is gorgeous. And the view of the St. Lawrence river from the landing by the Frontenac? Breathtaking. It's unfortunate that so much of the surrounding area appears to be super-industrialized, but cities have to grow I guess. Seeing it here just makes you wish they ...

    ... definitely worthwhile

    We also visited the Citadel which is located on a hill overlooking the city. Although it has historical significance and parts of it are dedicated displays, the fortress is still an active military base. The views from the Citadel over the old city and the St Lawrence River are excellent and not to be missed.

In my case, I can understand that Heather was shocked by this because, in the family of the dad of my mom, they were seventeen in his family! My parents grew up in smaller families. My dad has five brothers and sisters (one brother, four sisters) and my mom has three sisters. Me, I only have one sister. Finally, I think that ...

    ... donated to the city by a grateful resident during the second world war. The city hired a world renowned gardener to plan the layout of the gardens and the park. I can’t imagine how many annuals are planted every spring and one person told me that they constantly change the plants throughout the season as early flowering ones die off. There are plants that I’ve never seen before and the colors are amazing. The park is quite ...
