Edit Blog Post
Published: July 15th 2019
This is a definitive “Heck, yeah!” to those of you who asked if there are to be anymore trip blogs after our sale of Mufasa, I hope this alleviates your worries! Since we sold our motorhome after 45+ years of RVing, most questions have been the same one...can you still do a blog?? The answer to that is definitely “Yes”! We have just given up RVing, not traveling. This is our first blog (but not first trip) post Mufasa. You will have to be the judge of whether or not the blogs are still fun! Stay tuned.
Mufasa is safe in his new home in East Tennessee (thanks Kip!) and has already been to Oklahoma. His new owner is going to be following John and me on this journey. To those who were not aware that we chose this spring to sell our faithful travel companion, I hope the fact that you did not know saved you from panicking about a possible lack of blog entries! This will be a shorter trip than many we have done in the past...I am sure that will be good news to some of you and disappointing to others! We (and you) were used to our loading up Mufasa and heading out on 4 to 6 week+ trips. Right now the plans are for several shorter trips via automobile, planes, and/or busses, some of which we will post and some we will not. “ROAD TRIP!!” is my new mantra! John needs to be VERY afraid!
On this particular trip, our plan is to leave Nashville tomorrow morning, flying to Quebec City, Canada. UBERDavid will pick us up and we should arrive at the Hilton Quebec by tomorrow afternoon, returning on July 23. We were in Quebec City once before for a very brief stop with my Dad in 1987 a few months after my Mother passed away. As we were all still grieving, it was hard to turn our happy hearts on. The plan is to take our time to explore and absorb as much delight as possible from this beautiful city which we understand to be the closest you can get to France without flying to Europe! Below are quotes from our AAA book on Quebec City: “Canada’s first city and capital is romantic, enchanting and captivating. Bienvenue! (Welcome!) Little did explorer Samuel de Champlain realize that the site on the St. Lawrence River he chose for a trading post in 1608 would eventually become the capital of the province of Québec. That fledgling settlement, Canada's oldest, prospered and grew in the only direction it could—up the steep cliffs that rise from the riverbank. Centuries-old protective stone walls still surround the city.”
We very much look forward to our trip and hope that you will get a kick out of it also. For those of you who are new to traveling vicariously with us as well as those of you who are veterans, please know that you are more than welcome (and indeed encouraged) to send an email or make a phone call and let me know that you want to opt out. There will be no hurt feelings, and no problems! Also, John and I like to remind you that we LOVE any and all comments that you feel led to make. Your comments entertain us as much as we hope you are entertained by our journeys. If you have a difficult time posting, especially shortly after I enter a post, wait awhile and try again. If you continue to have trouble, send me an email and I will see if there is anything I can do. This process mostly works just fine, so hang in there! In the meantime hop on board and let’s tour the most French part of Canada together! If you have any suggestions as to things to do, see, or eat (!!!) please send them along. Thanks in advance. Pat and John
