Travel Blogs from Quebec City
... serving all sorts of Quebecois delicacies. In the middle of a Wednesday, however the Table D’hotel menu gave us both a 3 course meal and beer for around $40. Susie finally got to try snails ( a little quick for the camera) whilst Matt’s soup was a good warmer to start. For main Matt had a slice of pie that contained a lot of animals, from what we remember Bison, Rabbit, Pork, Duck and something else, (not a Wrights pie). Susie’s salmon and prawn pie was less ...

Tuesday 2nd April we drove from Boston to Quebec City in Quebec, Canada, which is about a seven hour drive. Now I'm a nervous passager at the best of times, especially since our accident last year, so driving on the other side of the road, snowing with poor visability and signs in French (once we crossed the boarder) made for a long drive.
