Our trip to Quebec was definitly one of the most exiting things I've done in the year 2012, it's hard to explain all that happened that week. I'll just start from the beginning.
The plane ride to Quebec was my first flight. So even though I couldn't see out the window (because it was an all night flight) it was still new to me, and a few of my friends as well. We took three planes, just to get to Quebec, a small jet to get to Vancouver, then we took a Airbus for 5 and a half hours all the way to Montreal and then we finally we took a small prepeller plane too Quebec city. (To be honest that last plane wasn't the best first flight experience I wanted, but at least we didn't have to pay for it.) When we landed at the Quebec airport we noticed that our luggage had been lost. Again not the best first flight experience.
Our tour of Quebec was interesting, educational and fun, even if most of us didn't have any of our stuff to last in minus thirty conditions and we went through an all night flight. I wouldn't recommend going through the sort of thing we did, especially the all night flight, that doesn't help at all. But besides that, I think the whole class had fun and took a lot of photos.
The Carnival was-if you tried to explain it all in three words-awesome, cold and expensive. But mostly awesome. I think I would've enjoyed it more if I had all my winter stuff, but thanks to Air Canada that wasn't a possibility sadly. For the most part of Carnival we just walked around and did some sight-seeing. We would've been able to go into the huge ice castle but as it turns out after six pm it turns into a night club sort of thing. So we continued on our way, some people bought syrup, which I have to say was really good. Then we continued to watch the parade, not my favorite thing because of how cold it was, but I would still recommend it to anyone who would have better snow gear then we did.
The following day we were on our way to Saguenay, the small town where the exchange was being held, and met our buddys or "twins". When we met them it was pretty much what I expected it to be, they were all waiting at the door ready to greet us. I have to say that was a little weird because we're supposed to be auto friends with them for a week, that part I didn't really understand. But we still had fun.
After that we did a whole week of ativities some with our "twins" and some without them, but I'd rather not bore you with those details. During the trip, I learned that I could speak French quite well in a fully French enviroment and that I could easily stay places far from my family for extended periods of time.
Thanks for reading! And comment for suggestions, I tend to miss a lot when I'm writing!
