Have Dental Floss, Will Travel

Mapping the world, one waxy strand at a time…

Winter Wonderland

Fact: December 25 doesn’t really feel like Christmas from a hotel room in Montreal.

But aging tigers, cute kids, and Matt Damon make it a little bit more heart-warming.

Fact: By the time we finish our road trip, Brent and I will have collectively consumed two crates of clementines.

But we’ve also eaten our share of crusty breads, thick soups, creamy hot chocolates and cafe au laits, and bursting-at-the-seams french crepes.

Fact: It’s tough to get a picture when you’re blazing down a toboggan run on the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t steal one from someone else (source).

Fact: Brent has been dodging my ice skating requests for the past six years.

But snowy nights in Quebec City and a free outdoor rink across the street from the hotel make it tough to pass up.

More to come when we’re back stateside!

    That sounds really heavenly, even for a girl who doesn’t like snow! Enjoy the remaining time.

    As Lake Placid was as hot as the core of the sun yesterday, causing all the snow to flee, I am going to propose a day trip or two to Bill. Would you both say that Montreal is worth the 4-hour round-trip drive?

    That looks amazing! I kind of want to go for the toboggan run alone. Hope you guys had a blast!

    Ahhhm, Abby, that looks so great, the snow, the crepes. My stomach did a growl looking at all that chocolate 🙂

    You can mail a crepe, right? No? Looks like you are having a pretty great trip!

    Loving that last picture! The colors are fabulous!
    What a wonderfully cold and snowy Christmas.
    We went and saw We Bought a Zoo this last week, too!

    Wonderful Toboga. Only 1 time I did a toboga run: it was in China, down the Great Wall; I will not repeat the experience!
    The pictures show us as a Christmas has to be: cold and snowy.
    Happy New Year.
