These stunning Quebec road trips are perfect for escaping Montreal and getting lost in the fall foliage of La Belle Province.\nExplore the far reaches of the province... or keep it close to home. \nTaste and see everything Quebec as to offer - you might even learn a little history along the way!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nOne of the best ways to experience Quebec is a road trip. Simply hop in a car and take a stunning drive through winding roads, sloping mountains and alongside beautiful lakes and rivers. This way, you get to see things ay eye level, you're free to stop and explore, and you decide your own pace.\nI've always loved road trips, big or small. I've driven from Toronto to Calgary and back, from Halifax to Montreal and around Cape Breton Island.\nNow, I'm desperate to start exploring La Belle Province while I still live here. I wanted to know what the best road trips were to take around Quebec, whether they were near or far, short or long.\nI came across countless tourist routes, and these are the ones that I think can't be missed if you're planning to take in the fall foliage this season.\nFall is an ideal time for a road trip because of the temperature, but also because you'll want to try and get to other regions, sometimes far from where you live, if they've peaked already or are about to peak.\nWondering when and where you should take your fall roadie to maximize on those mesmerizing colours?

She thought it was funny, as she often does, to flail her legs while I put her diaper on. That’s how the buttpaste got on the comforter. It’s really a bummer to clean buttpaste off your bed. Not because it’s a particularly difficult task, but because it’s frustrating that the mess exists in the first place! . While it was all unraveling I was thinking about the talk I gave for @olom_cor today, and specifically about an example of pilgrimage that I shared. For our honeymoon, we went to visit St. Anne at the Sainte Anne de Beaupré shrine in Quebec. We wanted to ask for her intercession. We were told by my doctors that we’d have a hard time conceiving children without surgery, so we turned our honeymoon into a pilgrimage and put our fertility and family into God’s hands. Well, those things are always in His hands, so I suppose we actually just learned to trust in God more! . We were elated to learn that we were pregnant when we returned home from our pilgrimage! The grandmother of Jesus heard our prayer to her Lord and grandson, and she interceded for us. We love Winnie. She is a great gift! Having buttpaste on the comforter makes it hard to remember what I felt like as a new bride, fearing my doctors’ words, and thinking I may never be a mother, but I am a mother! I’m flawed, but I’m striving for sainthood. Tonight was a great eye-opening reminder of the gifts God has blessed me with. . What are you most grateful for tonight?
