Another interesting trivia might be that Quebec was founded in 1763, so it is quite old for North American standards, and will likely have a lot of history to offer. Its largest city is Greater Montreal with a population of 3.8 million followed by Quebec City short under 0.8 million. And then there is weather, all four seasons (big on winter), an abundance of wildlife (moose anyone?), and half a million lakes or so.
The music is Celine Dion, the sports is hockey and the cuisine is poutine. What does that say about these Quebecois or is it Quebecers? I have to admit, I know next to nothing about Quebec, but as I am going to spend a major portion of my journey in this very province, am curious to find out more...
During my research I had a hard time finding travel information about Quebec. Most of the travel literature seem to recommend a visit of Montreal and Quebec City, plus a tour around the Gaspé peninsula. But is that it? I searched for blogs with Quebec travel content but to limited avail. Nothing to be found in English language, forget about German, and most Quebecois bloggers seem to be globetrotters, not homebodies. Is there nothing to write about in this huge province or do they simply want to keep the beauty of Quebec a hidden secret? At the end I came across two blogs where I found some cultural and culinary inspiration:
I do not understand everything, and Google translate doesn't seem to help much with Canadian French, however pictures tell the story just as well, and now I am very much looking forward to visiting the mysterious province, that nobody seems to write about.
