Quebec, Maritimes, and What I Think of Anne

2
Nov

It’s so fun to think I’ve been all over Canada in the last month and a half. I’m so privileged that we can do this! Besides all the concerts we’ve been doing over and over…we’ve managed to get quite a bit of sightseeing in as well.

We were able to do a little bit of shopping in Quebec and then visit Old Montreal, which is just beautiful. The architecture and the cobblestone streets are worth seeing!

The both of us thought it would be absolutely the most fitting thing to do to get a pastry there. But then we found the gelato shop! We caved. (Just so you know, hazelnut gelato with chocolate gelato tastes like Nutella! Kind of AMAZING!)

Oh, and if you want to try a healthy gelato recipe, check out my Coconut Gelato Recipe!

And I also met a new boyfriend in New Brunswick. Love at first sight. There’s just something about a man in law enforcement. (have to say, I’m worried about him though…I think he’s anemic) He needs to drink some of my spinach smoothies.

The views in the Maritimes are just enchanting!

Maritimes Tour 133

We were able to spend a little bit of time sightseeing in PEI, it’s was so close! Breathtaking.

We even went to Anne’s house. And we walked the haunted wood.  A frightful experience…I can see why it’s called haunted. Not really.

I look good as a redhead, no? Have to say, I love the books of Anne and the two first movies…but I think all the hype on the island about Anne is crazy. She’s fictional…all the same, I can understand why people are so endeared to her. She is pretty sweet.

I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse of my life on the road!

Have you ever been to the Maritimes? What do you think of Anne?

    Hi Charissa. SImply beautiful. I hope to be able to wander around Canada one day! There is a lot of fiction being turned into tourist attractions around here – just think Lord of the Rings! I think I even have a photo of the sign of the town of Matamata that says ‘Welcome to Hobbitton’. I am so glad you are having a great time. Kat :-)
