I have never thought about choosing a word to describe my hopes for a coming year. It is something my friend Lola has written about at the end of each year, but it wasn't something I thought of doing myself
When I rented my first apartment in Québec City in 2014 several locals asked why I'm living in Old Québec (Vieux-Québec). Surely other neighbourhoods are cheaper. Why would I want to be so close to the tourists? Personally, I didn’t think it was a big deal. Old Québec is filled with history and character and marvellous architecture, why wouldn’t I want to live in Old Québec?!
