“The city is romantic, it offers a wide variety of fine restaurants, has a European flair, and, most importantly, both visitors and residents find an openness of mind, an acceptance of differences.”

We started to get nervous as a burly police officer gave us that I’m-about-to-walk-over eye. My boyfriend and I were taking a quick-kiss selfie in front of Québec City’s Fontaine de Tourny. He steps over in unison with the banging of drums from a First Nations’ festival happening across the street at Parc de l’Esplanade.

“Hey guys, let me take that photo for you,” he says, in a deep Québec accent. We pose. I wrap my arm around Jason, but keep him at justfriends length.

“Come on,” he says. “Give him another kiss, act like you like each other,” he laughs while holding up the phone and crouching like a mom taking a picture of her kids before they leave for the first day of school.

We give one another a big kiss, the officer takes the snap, and then he gives us a gentle wave goodbye. “Happy pride,” he says walking back to the festival gates.

Both of us were in somewhat of a shock by the incident and had to take a minute to discuss what just happened. Being from New York, we are programed to be suspicious of strangers, never mind a cop approaching us. It was so sweet that we savored the scenario as we stood by the cascading fountain waters.

Quebec City: Six Reasons to Cuddle Up

Old Quebec City There’s nowhere in North America quite as magical as Quebec City – especially at this time of year. Amid mind-bogglingly freezing temperatures – in January 2015, it dropped to -36.7 degrees Celsius, the coldest in 75 years – this predominantly French-speaking town is a warm hug of a destination. The city, founded in 1608 by French explorer Samuel de Champlain, is one of the oldest European settlements on the continent. It has all modern conveniences of a capital city, but, with a still-petite population of 516,000, feels intimate and special. Indeed, the city’s rich European charm is present all year round, coming into sharper focus during the winter season – as we discovered during a visit just last week, in the run up to Christmas. So don with us your hats, gloves and sturdy snow boots as we recount eight of our favorite discoveries about this true winter wonderland…
