bonsoir mademoiselle!

on sunday morning, after lounging in bed for a bit, and enjoying the continental breakfast, we checked out of the hotel with 4 minutes to spare. while still in the hotel room, we made the quick choice to go to old montreal and stay the 2nd night there. we found a hostel online and booked a room before we left. then we hit the road, and 3 hours later, we were there.
 pit stop to fuel up.
 the mountains look small in the picture, but they were huge.
montreal.

the hostel we stayed in. it may have changed my opinion about hostels! (la maison du patriote)
 first stop-montreal poutine.
 poutine and beer. good stuff. minus the beer.

 old montreal.

christmas store love.
 notre dame.
ahhhhh.

montreal was a lot better. i only wish we had more time. the last time i was in montreal was grade 12, and there's a particular pub that everyone goes to, and basically you sit and drink sangria and shots for hours. too bad it was a 1/2hr walk from us and it was a little too cold. there were more shops, christmas stores, and basically more along the lines of what i was expecting.

can i also say i love hearing french all around me (although the nosey part of me hates it because i love listening in on people's conversations), and i wish i paid more attention in french class in elementary and high school. oh well.

part 1 here.

I love Montreal. I was there at the end of October for a concert and it's always a good time. It's such an old city with a ton of character! The shopping is pretty amazing too!
