Although I had been to Canada several times throughout my life I’ve rarely had the opportunity to travel outside of Ontario, only having gone to Montreal once or twice. Québec City seemed both intriguing as well as slightly concerning due to the predominant language of Québec being French, a language which I speak very little of. For me, as I read the Itinerary of the trip the one visit that stood out was the Citadel.
