Home sweet home Montreal… Part 2

So I’m spending my last few post’s writing about my favourite destination so far. My home for the past 3 months, Montreal. I haven’t been a tourist here. I’ve been a Montrealer. I’ve been going to the clubs, eating the food and walking around Le Plateau. But that’s what I wanted. I didn’t want to […]

Home sweet home Montreal… Part 1

I don’t even know where I would start to describe my love for this city. Living here has been the craziest, scariest, most independent thing I have done so far in my life. Leaving my family and friends behind to live in a different country where they don’t even speak a lot of English, was […]

Take me back to Toronto

Okay so this time I actually saw Toronto instead of just using it as a base point where I left my luggage. Turns out Toronto is pretty cool. The CN Tower was really fun, except for the line up, typical tourist destination so bring snacks for the 2 hour wait. They have a glass floor […]

Toronto, eh?

Well it was time to take off again before getting too comfortable in Montreal, and Toronto was my chosen destination! People told me it was a ‘try-hard’ New York City, a NYC for Canada. I can definitely see a bit of that going on, but I loved it! It was Thanksgiving on the Sunday, which […]

Oh Ottawa!

When I told a friend I was going to Ottawa for the weekend, they said “Why bother, nothing’s there! Only go for the day”. Ottawa reminds me of Canberra in Australia. Yes it is the capital of the country but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be fun. I did not hate Ottawa completely there were some […]

A quick day in Québec City

There is nothing better then getting away from the rain and out of Montreal for the first time in my four month trip as an exchange student in Canada. Even though I have grown to love Montreal, it is time to start seeing the rest of what ‘The Great White North’ has to offer. Destination […]
