At last I found a place to live!

    Some of you may remember my older thread about a job that I got in Quebec City. At the time, I had no place to live in Quebec City and I live quite far from there (10 hour drive). Plus, I'm starting work next week so I had just under a month to find a place to live.

    I thought it was going to be straightforward, but it wasn't. Most asked for 12 month leases and subletting (rent from a tenant) ended in July. I need a place for only May to end of August. Most places were taken by the time I called them. I started looking further away from where I live (15 minute drive) when I wanted something directly downtown. All the downtown places seemed to be getting sucked up by tourists.

    Luckily, I waited before agreeing to a place further away because I found a place directly in the heart of downtown!!! A nice area too! My cousin said it was the nicest place out of all the places I sent her to (she went to see the places for me) and it's around a 1 minute walk from work. :smile:

    I should be leaving next week on Wednesday. Definitely awesome! I'll post pictures of my place and the city throughout the summer.

    That sounds wonderful Jason! I loved the old city in Quebec when I visited a couple years ago. It really is a beautiful and fun place to live, and I'm really happy for you that you landed something right there and a nice place too. Good luck with the move and let us know when you're all settled. :smile:

    Thanks everyone! And yes, the plans are now settling in.

    I'll give my cousin a big hug when I see her. Her help was priceless.

    The old city is wonderful, and if you can live close to work, that's killer. Congrats!

    I'm living directly in the old city. :smile:

    Yeah, so if any PFers come down to Quebec City. Let me know. We'll hang out and have a good time.

    You're living directly in the old city? Okay, I'm entirely jealous.

    Congratulations on finding not only a place to live but a really great one, Jason.
