Quebec City & St. Lawrence River in August!

I have a week of vacation booked from August 26th to the 30th and I don’t work the 24th and 25th or the 31st and 1st of September either (weekend before and after vacation) so that is 9 days in a row off. I mention this to my Mom as I wanted to see about borrowing their camper for the week to go camping somewhere close by. Instead my Mom came up with the idea that her, my father, Edward and I go camping along the St. Lawrence River in New Brunswick & Quebec all the way to Quebec City.

I have been through Quebec City before mostly just driving through it or around it or going through it on a train but I have never really walked around in Quebec City or seen any of the sights. I am really excited to go. My parents have been before buy my husband has never been near there. Neither of us have been along the St. Lawrence river, though my parents have.

Last real vacation I had for a week at a time that I went anywhere was 2 years ago when Edward and I got married and we went camping for a week at Falls Lake. Last year I took a week but stayed at home and Edward worked so I pretty much just watched tv at home. This will be a lot more fun

Kejimkujik Seaside Park Part 1

So with spring finally here and Eddie and I both having the day off tomorrow I am planning a special trip to Kejimkujik Seaside Park in Port Joli, NS for tomorrow. We need to be up and leave by 9 AM (10 at the very latest) tomorrow to be there before lunch time. I am so so so excited! I have never been but have always wanted to go! I love our provincial parks and I love the ocean. It’ll be a great opportunity for some great pictures I hope as well.

Since last weekend I have been wanting to go somewhere this weekend but wasn’t really sure where until today. I thought about Kejimkujik National Park which is inland from the Seaside one but is all part of the same park system. I debated a little over both because I don’t think I have been to the inland one either which has a lot of hiking trails, rivers and a waterfall but I decided I would rather go to the seaside one tomorrow instead. Sometime this spring or summer we will go to the other part of the park as well.

So stay tuned for some pictures tomorrow or the next day. Depends on how late we get home tomorrow.

8 Places I Want To Visit

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to travel. I love traveling by plane, train or car. Visiting somewhere new is almost magical to me and reminds me so much of my childhood. My father was posted to CFB Baden-Söllingen in Germany. We moved there when I was 5 in 1985 until I was 11 in 1991. During our time there my parents decided that they were going to travel with me as much as possible and show me as much of Europe as they could at the time. This was still at a time when the Berlin wall was still up and we could not really travel as easily to certain places like East Germany, Poland, Yugoslavia, etc. I enjoyed it. I remember camping in Italy, skiing in Switzerland and Vacationing all over.

I decided in honor of this and because my husband has only been as far as Bar Harbor, Maine and New Brunswick that I want to make a list of 10 places I really want to visit. These are not places I have asked him about this is just all me. Places I have always wanted to visit even long before him. I am hoping to get myself a travel rewards credit card through work one of these days since it has all the insurance coverage’s and I can earn rewards towards traveling and when buying tickets.
