Signs that you’re getting tired of your fast-paced lifestyle lately: You don’t feel energized and motivated to go to work. It’s hard to find inspiration for your work-related tasks. You feel like you don’t have the same level of creativity you had before. All you’re wishing for is to escape somewhere and get a relief from stress. The list goes on.
What have you been doing right there? Yes, you, a tired, stressed young adult who’s wearing a white button-down shirt walking hurriedly on a congested urban street. What have you been doing with all the weekends you have? Don’t tell me, you’re wasting them on Netflix and a bowl of popcorn on that old couch that’s as stressed as you?
Don’t get me wrong—nobody should be judged for binge-watching Netflix. It’s just that, there’s too much life full of adventures waiting for you outside, right there on the roads heading to the easy-breezy country sides. Just the thought of it makes me giggle with excitement. How about you? Of course, you do, too!
When the daily grind gets too tiring and monotonous, you may want to spice your life a bit, or take life slowly for a moment. The weekend gives you tons of opportunity for that. You may even want to jot down each and take pleasure in checking off one item after another on your bucket list.
Don’t think twice, go find a good vacation cottage somewhere where you can unwind and unplug from your usual dailies. It could be somewhere in the middle of a farm, in a beach, at the hilltop, in the woods—literally anywhere, as long as you can rest, recharge, and find some inspiration. If you don’t have any plans yet for this coming weekend, why not consider visiting the quaint city of Quebec?
Here are the reasons why.
You’re Interested in Anything French
Quebec, the second largely populated province in Canada next to Ontario, is an area where majority of the population are French-speaking locals. In fact, French is its official provincial language. Whether you’re seriously taking French lessons, or you simply like French, it would be a great learning experience to visit a place where the language is spoken. Of course, learning a language would be a whole lot better if you live in a place where you can listen to it often for many years. Nevertheless, a short vacay in Quebec may inspire you to get better on your French lessons.
Or perhaps, you’ve been wanting to visit the cities of France, but your current situation doesn’t allow you to do that yet. Visiting Quebec, if that’s the most convenient option, would be equally awesome. So, don’t hesitate to find for you the right chalet a louer Quebec where you can stay for a short-term vacation.
History, Culture and Food are Your Favorite Topics
If you’re looking forward to a weekend full of new learnings on history and culture, Quebec won’t let you leave empty-handed, rather, it’s going to feed your mind and your senses with a lot of those. And when you say it’s going to feed your other senses as well, you’ll literally have a feast on unique sumptuous meals you’ll fall in love with. Friends on a diet, you’ve been warned. So, don’t go there if it’s not your cheat day or cheat weekend for that matter.
