JE ME SOUVIENS MONTREAL

It's been quiet around here, I know. We've been celebrating the holidays, working on KiitosNamaste and traveling. And now I'm back on the job hunt as well so bare with me. Latest interview; yesterday. Wish me luck!
Right after Christmas we took off to Montreal, Canada which is about 6 hour drive from our place. We rented an apartment in a modern high-rise luxury building (2-bedroom, living room, dining area and full gourmet kitchen) in the heart of Old Montreal which was way nicer than staying in an actual hotel. 
This was my first time in Canada, but husband is quite familiar with Montreal since he used to work periodically at a TV-station here. I loved hearing French being spoken everywhere and the European feel this city has. When we were walking the quiet, snowy, old cobblestone streets in the middle of the night I felt like I was in Helsinki.

Gorgeous Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal. This is where Celibe Dion got married as well...
It was a fun, relaxing trip and we're looking forward to coming back in the spring or summer when it's not so darn cold. 
The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

    1. Hi Stine,

      I went there with J-1 visa through some youth organization that does the work&travel visas for students. The one I used doesn't exist anymore, but I'm sure there are many others that you can use. Good luck! It was an amazing experience!
