Mont Tremblant is a fantastic Quebec escape
I'm just back from a wonderful girls' weekend in Mont Tremblant. I feel like I see my girlfriends so often when I travel, but it's often in the context of mixed couples’ weekends. I did some rough math and realized it had been 7 years - yes, 7!!! - since my last trip with just the girls.
Mont Tremblant is a beautiful community about 2 hours from my home. Best known for its outdoors activities - skiing in winter, a host of sports and recreation in the summer- we were there in the middle of its swing season.
The slopes had just closed, tourists were in very low numbers, and there was still a dampness in the air. While others might prefer to visit when the town is bustling with visitors, it turned out that a quiet weekend away was exactly what we all needed!
I am addicted to notebooks and stationary - even when I travel!
I'm an old fashioned stationary girl at heart and I love to travel with a journal. While I'm not always great at doing daily entries, I love having it on hand for writing down random thoughts, contact information for new friends, directions, opening hours, prices, money spent, confirmation numbers, and more.
I believe anyone can travel with nothing but carry-on luggage. Really! Find out why I love it so much.
There's a fun television ad in Canada. It shows a woman shopping at Ikea and, when she looks at her receipt after paying for everything, she thinks that something is wrong. The prices are too low. They must have made a mistake. So she starts rapidly walking away while trying not to call attention to herself. And when she gets outside, she yells "START THE CAR" to her partner. Of course, it's all a clever shtick for Ikea. The message is that their prices are so low that it feels like you're getting away with something. But what does this have to do with traveling with carry-on luggage? Absolutely nothing - except that traveling with carry-on luggage is so awesome you feel like you're getting away with something. I kind of feel like that woman every time I scurry past the baggage claim carousel and hightail it to the shuttle buses ahead of everyone else. START THE BUS!
