J'adore Montreal

I got back from Montreal last week but immediately jumped back into work and started a summer class so I am just now getting around to posting some pics to the 'ol blog.



There were seven of us that traveled together so in order to save money we rented an apartment for the week. Think Real World: Montreal....what happens when people stop being polite, and start getting real!


The apartment was amazing! It was in the middle of the city, gorgeous inside, and had a full kitchen complete with everything you would need to cook each night (another cost saving tactic)! I have rented an apartment on vacation before in NYC so I thought I'd try it again. It worked out great and I am now convinced that renting an apartment is the only way to go when traveling!

To top it off there was a beautiful church right outside our door!


We saw all the sites and had some great food!


First dinner in Montreal....authentic Chinese food just three blocks from our apartment!



Old Montreal



Home made beer at The Three Brasseurs in Old Montreal



Pub food!



Poutine....a Montreal staple
French fries, gravy, and cheese curds



We found a cute little cupcake shop next to Notre Dame Basilica



An awesome panorama of Montreal



The Sailor's Chapel



Notre Dame Basilica in Old Montreal



Olympic Park



Lunch before the market.....authentic Italian food...yum!


Jean-Talon Market



The fruit and vegetable arrangements were great!




Even though it was cold and rainy for almost the whole week we had a great time! Montreal is a great city and definitely worth a second visit!
