Everyone has a different opinion of what is “the good life.” For me, it includes sitting at an outdoor cafe, sipping wine, and people watching. I also don’t mind the music of street performers to enhance the mood. This pretty much sums up my time in Old Town in Quebec City. Inside the stone fortress walls, the cobblestone streets and rustic buildings transform you to another time. We didn’t visit as many sites as we probably should have, but there is something to say about slowing down and taking in the scenery. It is nice to see the points of interest and take in the history of a place. Yet, sometimes one can get overwhelmed and too narrow focused on the static presentation of a place and not take in how the culture presents itself in its natural form- people interacting. Visit the sites, climb to the highest peak, explore the city centers, however, always remember to slow down when traveling as you might stumble upon a delicious surprise.
