Okay, so I officially love this city. Montreal just has this vibe about it. Rick and I were both in agreement that this place is awesome. It’s just too bad neither of us speak French.
Once again, we had a great experience with our AirBNB in Montreal. Our host was so friendly, welcoming, and helpful. He’s been hosting with the site for a couple of years, and has had nothing but good things to say about it. Our room had it’s own entrance, ensuite, and the bed turned out to be super comfortable. We had toast, coffee, and orange juice in the morning, and then we drove to the nearest metro station. We left our car parked in a residential neighbourhood and used the subway to go back into the city.
We first went to visit Old Montreal.
Lunch was at this cute little creperie, we both ordered a crepe that came with swiss cheese, ham, and béchamel sauce. It was so good!
After lunch we wandered over to the Basilica, but were disappointed to find out you had to pay to go in. We decided we were too cheap for that, so we hopped back on to the metro and went to visit the Montreal BioDome. We didn’t really know what it is we were going to see, but it turned out to be awesome! The BioDome has four different ecosystems, complete with the animals that inhabit them.
It was a lot of fun, I loved the otters and the beavers!
Now we’ve made it to Ottawa, and we’re hanging out at my friend’s apartment while she is at work. I’m so glad we have some time to spend here and catch up. We will be here tonight and tomorrow night, and head out to Sault. Ste. Marie on Monday morning. It feels as though we have been on the road forever, and we still have a ton more driving to do! My husband is a trooper, that’s for sure.
Today’s song is Lush Life by Zara Larsson. It’s not a new song, but it’s fun and makes me want to dance 🙂
