LONG WEEKEND IN MONTREAL

Kate ParrishComment

i can't believe our trip to canada has already come and gone – it was everything i hoped it would be. montreal was completely different than i pictured, though {i didn't realize it was such a big city}. we had perfect weather luck which played a huge role in our experience – the sun was out, the temp was chilly-ish but also warm at times, and we never felt a drop despite the forecasted rain. some highlights from the trip include: 

 

^^ biking down little side streets 

^^st-viateur bagels the warmest softest yummiest

^^ splitting a crazy sandwich at shwartz's

^^ drinks and snacks at hotel herman

^^ stocking up on maple syrup at the farmer's market 

^^ biking to the top of mont royal – here you see me mid-mental breakdown. it was 45 minutes of uphill and i was pissed, but it was worth it {in hindsight}. when we arrived at the top there was live music, a silent disco (?!) and an art festival we had no idea would be going on.

oe beef

^^ an amazing japanese [big in japan] speakeasy whiskey bar and restaurant

^^dominion square tavern great old school spot for seafood and a cocktail

we came home feeling full, broke, and happy – i think we'll definitely be back to this city, hopefully next time with friends or family by our side. happy tuesday.
