It's been a while but I finally managed to leave Montreal for little getaway during what was apparently Spring Break for many Quebec schools. This inspired a number of jokes about typical American spring break debauchery. They were mentioned with a sense of irony and self-awareness because after all, we are super responsible adults successfully adulting. And yet, we all managed to wake up with massive hangovers on Saturday morning. YOLO, I guess.
Worry not, because we still managed to create memories we can recount to our future children. After cooking my favorite Colombian breakfast (arepas+Colombian eggs) we strolled around winding mountain roads admiring the beautiful forest, the cozy chalets, and the waist-deep snow.
The weather was absolutely perfect on Saturday and it only improved as we approached our last day in Wentword-North.
On Sunday we woke up refreshed (i.e. not hungover) to temperatures around freezing. This relatively warm weather and sunshine prompted us take our card game outdoors. This tiny preview of terrace life in Quebec was truly the highlight of the weekend and now my mind is consumed with Spring fashion trends and outfit combinations that I can't wear for another month.
Later we traveled about 25 minutes to Saint Sauveur a quaint little mountain town with great trails for ice skating and hiking.
And thus ends my first chalet weekend. I appreciate how many great and easily accessible little getaways are nestled around the outskirts of the city and I look forward to exploring so much more.
