My March Break Which Has Nothing To Do With Sports

I had an awesome March Break!  This year was probably the best one I ever had.  This is because I went to Quebec and Halifax! I left Mississauga on Sunday, and went to Quebec in a bus with a group. The drive was hours long. Over there, I stayed at an Army Base: CFB (Canadian Forces Base) I've been to Quebec before, and it's really beautiful.  Since the French arrived in Quebec a long time ago, a lot of the people there speak French much better than English.  After arriving there, we had 2 hours to roam around Quebec with a partner (s).  On my second day there, I went to the best part of the trip; a place called Village Vacances Valcartier.  This is where I did tubing for almost 6 hours!  There were over tons of different rides, including rides about 150 feet high!  After that, on the third day of the trip, we drove down all the way to Halifax in a bus, and at night we had something called a Ghost Walk.  This is when a tour guide takes you around the city, and shows you the creepiest parts of it.  Halifax was known to be a quiet, and sleepy town at first.  But many people believe in ghosts over there (our guide even claimed to have seen some while giving tours!) because the Titanic sunk near the coast of Halifax, there was a huge fire that burnt down nearly half the city a long time ago, and when soldiers would get drunk at night, they would often have fight which resulted in someone killing another person.  Believe it or not, but back in the 18th century, the biggest entertainment for the public was to see someone get hanged.  Since there was no great form of entertainment, whenever someone was going to be hanged, they would gather around, (sometimes with picnic baskets!) and happily watch someone die!  On the fourth day, we went to the Glooscap Center (a museum about Native culture in Halifax, and one of their greatest tribe leaders; Glooscap), and then the Maritime Museum of History (this was about ships, but on that day they had a special event, so we learnt about pirates and their lives). After that, we had three hours to get into groups of at least 2, and just roam around Halifax, eat dinner, and do anything we wanted to. The fifth day was spent visiting two more museums. On the sixth day, we drove back to Quebec, stayed a motel kind of place, and visited more of Quebec. On the seventh day, we drove down to Mississauga. That was my March Break trip.

We also had tons of free time, in which we could go to other rooms of people and hang out with them.

Also, I didn't play any sports.
