To continue my jet setting ways, this weekend I jetted off to Quebec City for the weekend with my friend Alli. This was a quick weekend trip with three purposes: The Ice Hotel (Hotel de Glace), Food and Photography. Done, done and totally done.
So let’s start with the Hotel De Glace:
You would think, being a rationale adult who is no stranger to the cold winter climate, I would dress appropriately for a visit to something called an Ice Hotel. You would think so…however, I was a touch underdressed for a four hour romp through every nook and cranney of this hotel built of ice, including sliding down an ice slide…twice (are you really surprised?).
Thanks Alli for those pictures!
I was cold, and my boots are not made for walking on snow for four hours. We had to take a break just so I can feel my feet again.
Otherwise, being able to explore the hotel during the day before they close off the rooms for the brave overnight guests was a lot of fun. There was a mixture of plain rooms and themed suites. The themed suites were fun to explore.
Then there was the Chapel, which you can get married in:
And the ice bar where you can grab a drink in an ice cup while chillaxing on some fur topped ice chairs:
Of course, it started snowing really heavily as the day ended. It was our signal to hustle back to the warm car and head back into Quebec City.
It was a fun day, and true to the nature of the trip, some more random shots:
