This is Part 2 of “Winter Project Show & Tell.” After creating a Blurb album of my United Kingdom trip in the Spring of 2011, next on the list was 3 weeks in Quebec in Fall 2011. I designed a 12×12″ book to show off all of my Montreal and Quebec City images. Because I was alone for the most part, there are no photos of myself… or people. Ha! It’s simply a travel photography album and I’m so proud of how it turned out.
Quebec was a life changing trip. I learned how to be still. I learned how to be alone. I learned when I am alone, I’m never really alone, because I can spend time in prayer with God wherever I go. While I walked the streets of Montreal, browsed the underground mall, waited for the Metro, sat in a corner cafe with an americano–I wasn’t alone. I was learning. While I drove my rental car into Quebec City from the suburbs every morning for over a week, I listened to worship music or sermons and although I was alone…. I wasn’t alone. I packed my Nikes and after a few hours at Starbucks just outside of Old City Quebec, I ran through a park overlooking the river alone. But I wasn’t really alone.
And as I spent most of my evenings in various guest bedrooms, reading my Bible, writing, praying, listening to music, thinking, I was alone — but I wasn’t alone. God was so faithful to speak to me on that trip. I learned a lot about myself and the woman I was (and am) becoming. A cool, challenging trip to take as a single 21 years old. I enjoy re-living it through my memories often. And I’m happy to have a book to assist those memories now. ;)
ps. Books were printed at Blurb.Com // as mentioned in the first paragraph. Buuuut, judging by emails and comments – it seems to have been overlooked! Enjoy!
