Montreal Travel Diary

Even though we were only in Montreal for 3 short days, it was enough for me to fall in love with this city all over again. I’ve visited a handful of times, but each visit fell into the winter season. It was beautiful in the winter time, but experiencing Montreal in the summer was definitely something else. I love the quiet, peaceful moments when I’m here in the Winter, but in the summer it’s warm and cheery from the live music, crowds of people and abundance of sunshine. We spent a majority of our time in Old Montreal — it’s beauty and charm can be witnessed at every turn and had me snapping away the entire time. We had brunch at Olive et Gourmando, lattes from Café Tommy and desserts from Maison Christian Faure, all of which were lovely and in close proximity to one another (more on Café Tommy and Maison Christian Faure in a later post!). I’ve tried to visit Mont Royal in the past, but the cold has always drove us away. This time — after getting us lost and taking us to a school on the other side of Montreal, we finally made it to the lookout point. It was such a romantic experience witnessing the sun set while it overlooked the entire city. Asides from the brutal 8-hour drive, this was such a short and sweet trip with Terrance to celebrate our belayed 7-years together.
