JE ME SOUVIENS


Hello everyone and welcome to this series of report in 2016 that took me to La Belle Province for the first time.

Back then the main criterai for me to choose were both the price and the time of flying, to maximise my travelling days without taking many days off. For instance I chose a return flight that was landing at 6.30am, just in time for me to have a quick shower at home and be in the office at 9am.

I checked and at the time I paid £625 for the whole journey, out and return which is really not bad at all.

So here is the routing.

One nice thing about North America is that they connect a jetway to pretty much any sort of plane, even the small Dash 8!

Arrival under a sunny afternoon.
That guy forgot something onboard so here is my perfect opportunity to take a picture to have someone to look at me in a weird way!

I must say it felt both weird and nice to hear french spoken in the airport… in North America where English is the dominating language!

And finally outside, on the lands of Belle Province… The former french bit of North America!

A quick bonus of my stay in Quebec City.
First the place Royale, with the oldest church in North America so it seems.

Doesn't feel like it is somewhere in Normandy?

With the next picture you definitely know we are not in France… Since the revolution it is extremly rare to find a statue of a king anywhere (to my knowledge just Versailles, Nantes and Lyon?).
So here is the statue of the most famous of all kings… Do I really need to say his name?

The fleur de Lys…

There is also a lot of English style houses on the foreground, and on top the famous Chateau Frontenac, which together is a really interesting architecture… You definitely feel like you are somewhere in Europe.

Conclusion

YYZ: A big airport, a lot of lenghty corridors but clean and with a good amount of services.

Air Canada Express: Very little difference with the regional branch of AC.
The crew was nice and were from Quebec, so they perfectly spoke both languages.
The cabin of the Dash is always a bit narrow, one of the narrowers I have been to but the seats were somewhat confortable.

YQB: I was expecting a larger airport, as in my mind Quebec was as big as Montreal (blame my french delusional of the Belle Province ahah) but the airport is super fluid, clean and well organised.
