We avoided most big cities on this trip but, we just couldn’t miss out on seeing Quebec City and when we had met a Québécois in New Brunswick just the week before, he’d given us the scoop on Quebec City and how to manage it with an RV. It involved camping overnight at the Wal-Mart in Lévis (which is a town on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, opposite Quebec City) and then simply parking the RV at the Lévis ferry terminal early the next morning and catching the ferry (only takes ~ 15 minutes) over to Quebec City.
We loved the province of Quebec in all it’s frenchness but, unfortunately we were having some mechanical issues with the RV and we really didn’t get to spend much time there on this trip.
And getting back to the title of this blog post, oui – on parle un peu francais. Makes it all the easier, to order the specific chocolate croissant (ie. the biggest one) catching your eye in the display case!
After our time in the beautiful province of Quebec (the Gaspé Peninsula is definitely somewhere to see again), we actually travelled back into the US and spent a week with new forum friends (from our View/Navion Facebook group) in Plattsburgh, New York. Chris & Kat welcomed us into their home (and their RV garage) and we took the opportunity to take care of some service needs on the RV and install solar panels on the roof, in order to equip ourselves a little better for the more remote camping locations we had come to prefer.
