DAY 5

Wow the days are flying by!

We had another very early start this morning, as we had to be on the bus at 6:15!

Our hotel last night was about half way between Montreal and Quebec City. And so, the drive only took about an hour and a half.

QUEBEC

We arrived at Quebec bright and early, at about 7:30 to be precise!

By this time Jeremy and I were starting to feel peckish so we sought out breakfast in a nearby cafe.

I had what seemed liked worlds largest chocolate twist and a small cappuccino. It was so yummy and was probably the first proper breakfast we have had this holiday (to my disappointment).

I am finding food to be one of the main issues about this tour. We wake up too early to have time for breakfast and are rarely left enough time to fit in proper meals. When I am home I will do a full review of the tour I am on!

Moving on…

After a scrumptious breakfast we opted to explore the city for ourselves. Everyone else on the tour chose to pay for an excursion. But I personally prefer exploring places like this myself!

We sourced a map from the cafe and headed out!

Quebec is truly a charming city. All the old winding streets made me feel as though I was on a film set!

We walked around for over 2 hours and I clocked up 8000 steps on my fitness bracelet. There was just so much to see! The architecture was outstanding, around every corner there was an intriguing sight. Even the post office was amazing!

The largest building we saw was the Fairmount Le Chateau Frontenac. It’s at the top of the city so once we climbed up there we had amazing 360 views!

There was plenty of history and amazing photo opportunities. A lot of the locals spoke French and the city itself felt very European. When tucking into breakfast I definitely felt as though I could be in Paris or something!

We left Quebec at about 11 and started heading back down into the states!

BOARDER CONTROL

I remember being quite worried about re-entering the states and I couldn’t find very clear information on what documents they require.

If like me, you live in the U.K. you will need to complete an Esta to enter the states anyway. This is done online and is linked to your passport. So on re-entry, all you need is your passport.

It’s also worth nothing that your passport needs to have at least 6 months left before expiry!

Going over the boarder was a pretty painless process.

They asked me how long I will be staying in the states and when I first came over so nothing too intense!

It’s also worth noting that if you are traveling from the states to Canada on a bus, you don’t require a visa.

I hope this information helps you!

The travel from the boarder to Boston has been exhausting! It was 8pm until we stopped for food!

Although we are staying at the Doubletree by Hilton Boston North shore and it has made my day!

We just went for a quick swim which has perked me up massively!

We don’t have much time to here though as we will be up bright an early in the morning to explore Boston!
