There were so many things that I loved about Canada and so many amazing things that I saw, but one of the things I loved the most was the architecture. In most of the places we visited there were distinct British areas, and then distinct French areas, it was interesting to see the influences of both counties and how both countries influence the culture. I took so many photos of the sights we saw, but I was always drawn to the small residential streets, you know away from the tourists, where actual people live. This photo was from a residential street that we walked down in Quebec City and I loved the decidedly French feel of that particular street. Each little building was maintained, with flower boxes still blooming. It really was completely charming.
Quebec City was completely enchanting, it was a beautiful city and so many historical things to see, but one of the favorite things I saw was the farmers markets in the various ports. As all of you know I love farmers markets, and Canada had some of the best I had ever seen. I will have a whole post coming up soon with pictures and the details of that amazingness.
Mr. Love from Scratch is quite the walker when we travel, by this I mean we walk EVERYWHERE! While my feet did ache and legs throbbed at times from all of the wear and tear they were subjected to, we did get to see some amazing hidden gems while walking. Also I do have to say there are some very stylish ladies in Canada, it sure seems like people dressed up more to go about their daily business. It has given me a new motivation to up my style quotient. It seems that certain things strike me on vacations, each one inspires with me with new things I want to try in my day to day living at home. This trip I was struck by of course the stylish people, but also their desires to make even the most simple things special, and to enjoy and savor life.
