Taking a trip for 2 weeks is a bit daunting don't you think?
I have a lot to remember and pack.I have a list going every time I remember something I write it down,and as I pack it it gets check marked.Usually I am not so meticulous and I can wing packing for a trip in an hour or less,especially if I am going to my daughter who lives in Ottawa,and what I forgot to bring I borrow from her or just go out and buy it.
But 2 weeks in Quebec City and Tadousac I want to bring what I think I will need,plus my hubby is coming and my son and daughter, so that's 4 of us.
Will we need a band aid? Or an asperin? How about a qtip or a safety pin??? So many things to think about....
I have taken enough holidays and trips to know that you must expect the unexpected and that stores are very difficult to find when you desperately need something, also there is the(( getting lost factor)) in searching for the elusive store.I try very hard to anticipate what is needed,and I am pretty good at it.And that means make a list!!!
What about you ladies do you make a list?
I am looking forward to this trip,it is a jam packed full of activities trip, we have booked 4 boat tours so far, one is a whale watching tour in Tadousac,when its just the two of you , the need for a schedule is not needed and you kinda go day by day doing what ever the mood dictates, but with 4 of us a bit more structure is needed.But not so much as you are so tired you could fall asleep standing up on your feet.
And I have a bad knee, I really should go see a doctor for it,I know I need a new knee but the thought of more surgery leaves me limp.So I procrastinate but in doing that it limits how much walking I can do.........sigh..........
The bad knee is taking into the consideration and we tour a lot instead of walking a lot.But we do end up walking quite a bit, you can't help it in Quebec City plus the city is built on hills , everywhere you go its up hill or downhill and very steep too.
Near the Chateau Frontenac its built so high up ,they have this elevator called The Funuculaire,for $1.25 it takes you up or down (duh) to your destination.I gladly pay that to save myself some 200 stairs.
Here are some pictures of years past
This ship is called the Marie Clarisse, its a schooner, its 100 years old and looks brand new,we took this ship last year down the St Laurence River one evening to see fireworks.We meet some lovely people from Carolina on board,it was such a chilly fast paced ride but was so wonderful to see how it was sailed.The crew dressed like pirates, honestly was such fun!!
Thank You For Your Patience - I am such a procrastinator of the worst kind... I admit it........ BUT.................... On the other hand I am working on a new blog, I will be open for b...
