    On vacation an hour from home!

    Ah ! Saint-Jean-Port-Joli ! Here is a village that lives up to its name! As I am lucky enough to live in the neighbouring MRC, only an hour away, it is not uncommon for me to head to Saint-Jean-Port-Joli for one or two days, simply to get a change of scenery. The experience works like a charm: every time I take exit 414 off the 20, I immediately switch to "vacation" mode, even though I'm only a few steps from home!
