Addicted Adventures in Quebec

My bestie, Nadia and I wanted to take an adventure to Quebec to see the sights, learn more about our neighbours to the east, and hear some amazing music at Montreal International Jazz Festival and Festival d’été de Quebec.


We started out from downtown Toronto in our Santa Fe Sport thanks to our partner Hyundai Canada. We were looking for fun, adventure and to #experiencehyundai like never before.


From TO to Montreal, we loved the ride as we sang to our fav songs, enjoyed some of our favourite snacks and chatted endlessly about all the things we wanted to do in the following 9 days.


When we arrived in Montreal it was time to hit the ground running. We picked up our media passes for the Montreal International Jazz Festival and right away caught some music. We then met up with friends that would take us through to the end of the first night.


Over the next 3 days, we would see some amazing shows, one of my fav being Joss Stone. We would experience some great food and see some wonderful sights. I’d also end up biking and walking about 40km before we’d hop back into our Santa Fe Sport and head off to Quebec City.



The drive between Montreal and Quebec City was quite pretty and super easy in our comfy, roomy ride. We slowly made our way by taking the long route to see as much as we could and also to avoid some traffic.


Quebec City is always special for me because it’s a beautiful and historic Canadian city. As we drove around it also reminded me of Nadia and I seeing the Rolling Stones exactly 2 years earlier.



While in Quebec City, we did a little off roading on our visit to île d’Orléans. We also did some hiking. At every point, it seemed like we were always going off the beaten path.


Some of the musical highlights for me included seeing: The Backstreet Boys, Pink, Kendrick Lamar, Nick Jonas, DNCE, Anderson Paak, and so many more amazing acts from the festival.



Not only would we see great music on our road trip, I would once again successfully conquer my fear of heights by climbing Canyon Sainte-Anne, damn that was a scary day.


So what was our goal for this whole trip?


  1. Adventure and see Quebec


  1. Hear some amazing music


  1. Have another fantastic bestie trip… and boy were we successful


As we drove home in the Santa Fe Sport from our friends at Hyundai Canada, I couldn’t help but think about all it had to offer during our adventure.



The Santa Fe is roomy, comfortable and a very easy ride. On top of that, it was fun and sleek.  For all you Instagrammers, it was super easy breezy to shoot. To learn more about the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport check out our glowing review coming up next week.


The trip was amazing, the time spent with Nadia doing what we love was more than I could ask for.  All I can think now is, where to next?

Enjoy and happy travels!
