August 3, 2022.

We are heading west to our home in Kansas City. Our estimated day of arrival is Sunday, August 7th. In.the meantime we have just spent two wonderful nights camping near Quebec City. This is our third visit to this delightful place which exudes more of a European than North American flavor.

We weathered a bit of rain, but when the sun came out so did the people, the colors, and the street performers.

On each visit we have “splurged a little“ in the bar at the Hotel du Frontenac. Just drinks and a charcuterie for 2 was well north of CA $200 before tip.

Ahead of us before Kansas City is a two night visit with friends in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and a brief stopover to see a longtime friend in my hometown of Crete, Illinois.

I anticipate that I will be “going silent” now until we are back home.

Once home I will then begin preparations for a 10 week journey that returns me to the Portuguese Camino, extending my foot-trek beyond Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre and Muxia in Spain, a total of nearly 500 km.. This will be part of a grand journey to 4 continents, 9 countries, covering over 30,000 km. Included will be a transit by ship of the Southern Atlantic Ocean. Stay tuned!

At the end of this post are a few more pictures from yesterday. For those who wish to dig a bit deeper the following link will take you to my pictures and travelogue from September 2018. Enjoy!

Timeless Quebec City. September, 2018.

Peace Everyone. Pete
