Episode 9 - End of the Journey

Set sail for adventure!

Be part of a unique adventure aboard L'Espérance, a three-masted schooner such as those that transported our ancestors from the Old Continent to America.

The first route is that taken by the colonists. Each week, you can follow their daily progress aboard the ship making the journey from La Rochelle to Quebec City by clicking on the blue dots on the map.

The second route is a fictional crossing based on archival material from that period of what could have occurred in the colonial era. Click on the yellow dots on the map to find out more.

The site contains exclusive video clips, surveys and photo galleries. Enjoy the adventure!

I was born on February 27, 1983 at the Hôtel-Dieu hospital in Arthabaska, and lived in Saint-Norbert d’Arthabaska until I was 11 years old. I then lived with a foster family until I was 17, when I struck out on my own.
