Blogging!!  I still have a lot of backlog blog posts I want to clear out from my list and yet sometimes when I get a chance to catch up, I end up resting and letting it pile up again.  I can’t wait to blog and clear out my entries. 😀

Ending the third day of the trip in Kingston, Ontario

February 14, 2018:  On this final day of the tour across Ontario and Quebec, we began the day finally with some continental breakfast courtesy of the hotel!  The first two days didn’t include breakfast.  I like Comfort Inn’s continental breakfasts since they provide the essentials and their essentials are decent too.  Continue reading

Comfort Inn & Suites storefront

Comfort Inn & Suites located at 1394 Route des Rivières in Saint-Nicolas, Quebec

February 13, 2018:  We stayed at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Saint-Nicolas, Quebec.  This was close to a few restaurants and a supermarket too but as it was near the highway, it was still a bit in the middle of nowhere.
