” Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home. ” – Matsuo Basho
We had a nice weekend getaway with Phils family to Charlevoix, it was about a 4 hour drive from Montreal. This charming little town has the most unreal scenic views !
We had one of the best views from our Airbnb, every morning we would sit out on the porch and enjoy our coffee.
The first day we went out and explored, we stopped by a few different places ( the “fromagerie” , the duck farm & did a tomato wine tasting at “Omerto” winery .. It was AMAZING! Fun little fact: This is the only tomato wine producing winery in the world. However it is sold in liquor stores throughout Quebec.
On Saturday morning we headed out for our hike, the hike was supposed to take about 4 hours total but it took us newbies a bit longer.
The views were magnificent as well, it was worth the pain (lol), plus the weather was perfect!
After our hike we headed back to our Air BnB and enjoyed a nice cheese platter & tomato wine.
Sunday was our last night, we took the day to explore some more. We went to the casino for a few hours then planned a nice evening out in the town.
Dinner was DELISH! I took the sweet potato gnocchi with sage sauce & for appetizer I had some eggplant raw lasagna. It was a great ending to our fun weekend, I will definitely like to go back again one day!
