I was recently in Québec City for work to visit Méga Parc, a new indoor amusement park at Les Galeries de la Capitale. Méga Parc is an amazing concept - try to imagine a steampunk theme park within an indoor shopping mall, where rollercoasters zoom by storefronts and rides reach the top of the roof deck - it truly is extraordinary. After our morning at Méga Parc, we had the afternoon to explore Old Québec City, where we were staying at Fairmont Le Château Frontenac for the night. There really isn’t much to do in the city this time of year - it was still winter temperatures - but it was fun to wander through the historic streets of Canada’s oldest city. My highlight of the afternoon was discovering the Maison de la littérature, a beautiful new library designed by Chevalier Morales Architectes with a Scandinavian-modernist aesthetic in the heart of historic Old Québec. I hope you enjoy my urban snapshots!
Montreal is one of my favourite cities, and I luckily had the opportunity to visit for work a few weeks ago. This was my first time visiting in the fall, and the city's many street trees were glowing with warm autumn colours. Although I was only in Montreal for thirty-six hours, I was able to see the Notre-Dame Basilica, explore the Barbie Expo in Cours Mont-Royal, visit our property Quartier DIX30 in Brossard, and enjoy a fantastic dinner with my colleagues at Maggie Oakes in Old Montreal.
