The final day in QC began with a picnic breakfast delivery, and an early morning architecture tour.  Roaming the streets, taking pictures and telling stories, we came upon the most photographed hotel in the world.  It can only be described as a magnificent castle, and it's obvious why there are so many pictures taken.  We also noticed several media outlets and what looked like secret service...  Could it be??  After investigating by talking to a tourist who questioned a camera man, we found out that Quebec City was the location of the G7 Summit, and political leaders were arriving soon.  Even on vacation, we can't escape #45!!

Day 5 - we drove to Quebec City and I loved it even more than Montreal.  It was smaller, quainter, and frenchi-er. (?) We roamed the streets, searching for the perfect doll for our sweet girls.  This city provided lots of photo opportunities, and the most perfect french dolls.

Here's the snap version:  Beers on the balcony, window shopping and wandering, pizza with 'shrooms and pine nuts and finally, FINALLY a delicious meal.

RT Day 4 - A day with my bestie, experiencing Montreal at it's finest.  
Coffee and croissants, chocolate and churches. 💕

Thank goodness we packed the umbrella and rain jacket - we needed it as we walked the streets of the city.

RT18 Day 3: Driving, driving, driving through the most beautiful landscape, flip-flopping from radio off incessent chatter to radio full blast singing our favorite RT playlist (which includes Chicks, Tina, Ham, Garth, and Ani.)  Keeping our eyes out for moose, we really want to see a moose, and driving some more. 

 Arriving in Montreal, is a regular city at first - mass transit, highways weaving around and about, strip malls and businesses - and then... you really arrive.  I have yet to travel to Europe (RT20??), but I feel like, this is what it feels like.  The people, the architecture, the accents.  We explored the remainder of the day and night, getting our steps and taking it all in.  Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (five stars for sure because our hotel was amazing - complete with french music that began playing upon opening the door.)
