After hearing that Quebec City was the “smaller, more European version of Montreal (One of my FAVORITE cities on the PLANET!) I had to book a trip and explore the city for myself. Flying round trip from Logan airport, I arrived in the city on an overcast Thursday afternoon and set about exploring the trendy Saint Roch neighborhood by foot in search of “Pad Thai” at the vegan Restaurant NESS and the best vegetarian poutine I could stumble across.
For my stay, I tried the unique lodging accommodations at Le Monastère des Augustines. While still functioning as an active monastery, half the cloister has been renovated into a hotel…albeit a stripped down version focused on simplicity and sustainability. Though the rooms are TINY and the bathrooms are shared, I loved the lack of television and disconnecting from the WIFI to enjoy my trip IRL! Bonus points for the vegetarian-friendly breakfast options–all included in the price at booking and all consumed in a “silent” dining environment.
As for the pictures, I traveled light. All photos were taken on my iPhone 5s using the ProHDR app and were edited in Photoshop.
