“Matt, are you ready to leave?” I asked as I stood sweating in my many layers in our Airbnb apartment in Quebec City. We were ready for the opening day of Routes Americas which we were going to photograph and film(see link to blog post here). I opened the door to leave only to discover that we were snowed in. I was a little confused coming from the sweltering heat of Durban, South Africa where the only chance of seeing snow is from a snow globe that you just shook. This was a tough trip all round as we battled the freezing cold temperatures(-23 degrees Celsius) and coming to terms with putting on layer upon layer of warm clothes only to take them all off again once we were at work. To leave meant the same procedure. This is only after taking 2 days to get to Quebec City so overall it was a trip never to forget but one that we have to honestly say was extremely hard. Here are some pics and comments describing the amazing scenery and experiences that we encountered in Quebec City.
P.S. I had a funny feeling each time I stepped out the apartment. It looked like blue skies and sunshine so I immediately pictured shorts and a tee shirt and even though I had a gazillion layers on it was still freezing. I felt betrayed or tricked every time.
