Beyond Alexandria…Canada’s Ice Hotel

Ice Hotel sign

A few pix from one of my favorite places, HOTEL DE GLACE, or the Ice Hotel in Quebec, where we spent a night last February.  Believe me, these pix – as poor quality as they are (sorry about that) – got me through many a hot, humid day this summer as I dreamed of being there in that cold, crisp air.  In fact, 25 degree sleeping temp is just about perfect for me.

My hat is off to Canada – not only  it an exquisitely beautiful country with fabulous vistas, wonderful weather, gorgeous lakes and lots of terrific outdoor activities, it is one of the cleanest places I have ever been…and the people are incredibly friendly, too.

Oh, and the gentleman in the last photo?  I couldn’t resist…that was from Quebec Winter Carnival…and summed up the spirit of our trip pretty perfectly!
