Montreal

Montreal is to Paris as carob is to chocolate

patati patataMy daughter goes to a French immersion school. In the summer between her 1st and 2nd grade, my husband and I thought it would be a good idea for her to have some sort of French experience (of course, not thinking of us). After some initial research, it became apparent that a trip to France was just not feasible. We resigned ourselves to the fact that we would just have to resort to French films, books and music. Then, it came to us – Montreal! A mere four hours away by plane and at a significantly reduced cost, our daughter could continue her French education during the summer (again, not thinking of us).

Everyday is an adventure in Montreal. Whether you are into museums, shopping, gardening, films, music, food, sports, there is something for you in Montreal. I have cousins who visit Montreal for 3 months to participate in the Montreal World Film Festival. They may see as many as 3 movies in a day!

Montreal: Eating

My family and I have a very distinct travel style – it entails walking, walking, walking, walking, eating, walking some more, eating, walking some more. Although there may be more walking than eating, eating is very important part of our travels. Montreal presents a multi-cultural, culinary utopia. French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Latin, Canadian, Vegetarian, Raw – you name – Montreal has it! In addition, you never have to go far to find a restaurant that meets your taste, mood and pocketbook.

Montreal: 1wrongturn

November 8, 2009  |  Destinations, Montreal  |  , ,  |  No Comments

Here it is – a great find that resulted from taking a wrong turn in Montreal!

Jeans, Jeans, Jeans – There is no type of denim in the world that can’t be found at this store in the in the basement of an office building, just off the beaten path in the Mile End. You can ask for rainbow acid washed jeans with rhinestone butterfly appliques and they will have it! The BEST part is that the prices are great and they will hem your jeans, ON THE SPOT, for free. All because I took 1wrongturn.
