I think I spent a couple of hours in Canada back in 2001 or so. My sister-in-law was living in Syracuse, and we took a drive over the border for an afternoon.
We ate at a restaurant, I think we took a look at part of Niagara Falls...I don't exactly remember.
But I do remember that as the only time I've ever left the country.
For the next three days, I'll be in Quebec.
It's kind of a big deal for me. As I've already mentioned, for the first time in my life I have a passport and I'm looking forward to using it and spending a few days surrounded by another culture.
I'm helping to chaperone a school trip, and I suspect I would have been interested in this trip anyway...but the fact that the offer came in a year that I was trying New Things sealed the deal.
New places (hotel, museums), new food, new experiences - I'm looking forward to sharing with you about it next week.
Until then, I have a couple of other New Things scheduled to keep you occupied until I'm back in the States.
