5 Days in Montreal

Tuesday July 29, 2008 by Ali

Ah, Montreal!


There is something so charming about being in a place where you don’t understand the language very well. At least I think so. Between the incredible cuisine, the language and the stunning architecture, it felt like a little slice of Europe.

American restaurants feel the need to load plates up with enough to satisfy a sumo wrestler. Towards the end of...

The Beach!
I'm sorry for the delay in posting. My internet connection was sketchy at best. Will catch up by tomorrow!

I finally got to spend an afternoon walking along the beach, collecting seashells and burning the crap out of my back. Not that frying my skin cherry tomato has ever been a fantasy, but that's what happens when you walk along the beach without a care in the world. I thought...
