This past weekend Boyfriend and I rented a car and drove up to Montreal for a much-needed mini-holiday. Hooly crap, neither of us wanted to come home.
We got in really late on Friday night so we basically wandered looking for food and then passed out. The next morning we drove up to the mountain and walked around. So pretty! It was pretty warm out but still a bit foggy so none of those pictures turned out great.
There was, however, tons of SNOW! I was basically in heaven.
From there, we drove over to the botanical gardens to take a peek. There may have been varying levels of goofing around.
And lots of pretty plants!
There also were butterflies, which for some reason, I found terrifying. Boyfriend was amused by the butterflies nom-ing on orange slices.
There was also an insectarium but after all the walking we were pretty exhausted. There may have been a tiny nap to recuperate.
Afterwards we headed a few blocks down to Old Montreal for dinner. Super gorgeous and totally made me excited for our France trip this summer.
There may have been some St Patty’s Day celebrations after dinner, which may have involved some (i.e. lots of) amazing Canadian beer and bagels. On Sunday we did some last minute wandering and stopped at the store for maple syrup and car snacks and went on our way back to Boston.
Of course the trip back included some goofing off as well, especially when we found honey sticks at a gas station.
All in all, a totally awesome trip. We were only there for two days and we didn’t get to do most of the things on our list so we’ll definitely be going back.
Especially since everyone there speaks French! Ahhh I miss French! -le sigh-
