Having had a taste of Western Canada I decided to take a vacation entirely in French speaking Canada. I mixed a bus/backpacker tour with some stops on my own. I had hoped to catch the autumn leaves at their best and I was probably not far off, the colors were magnificent!.
My trip started in Montreal, flying from the Washington DC area to Burlington, VT. From there I would take the bus to Montreal, as luck would have it I didn't have to go through that hassle. Anyway, once in Montreal I would catch the Moose Network bus, which went from Montreal to Tadoussac, with a few sightseeing stops along the way. Then, along with a few others, I got off in Quebec City for a few days to explore this magnificent city. After that I got the bus to Montreal and made my way to the Laurentians. Finally, I ended the trip in Montreal before heading on to Niagara Falls and then home.
I have to say Quebec exceeded all of my expectations. The sense of history was everywhere and you got the sense of a people proud of their heritage, and i don't mean proud in a chauvinistic way, a deep love for the land and extraordinary landscapes. It seemed so much of life in Quebec was all about little towns and villages.
I tried my hardest to only speak French, and though at times I caught myself lapsing into Spanish, my effort was appreciated and rewarded. Honestly, I would love to go back and see more of Quebec, what I did see was wonderful, but I feel I just scratched the surface.
