Montreal

So I still need to tell you all about our honeymoon and our random adventures. First let me tell you about Montreal a bit. First off did you know they have pink trees there?

It's true! Right in the middle of a mall too... kinda odd... kinda fun... can anyone say tourist to this picture??

We had rain one day while we were there... thankfully it didn't last all day... and thankfully we bought this $2 umbrella... apparently $2 doesn't get you a very large umbrella in canada...


Seriously the tiniest umbrella ever... Anyway we attempted to use said umbrella together... yeah we both ended up wet haha but we made it down to a cute little coffee house to enjoy mix yourself steamer and lattes!


I've never had a steamer or a latte in a beer glass before... but it was fun, and look at all the layers, you get it mix it all up yourself.

Overall Montreal was beautiful!

We attempted to go see the Notre Damn Basilica... but apparently they have turned it into a laser light show arena... wa-whaat??

We were torn whether it was worth paying $20 to see a church light up with lasers... but instead walked on to eat more gelato instead :)


Next up... Opera cake in ottawa!!!

Ashley I should have asked you where to go! I was told to try poutin but in truth I don't think I saw in on a menu once while I was there!!

Okay, I'll bite. What's poutin?

stephchows said...

poutin is a very Canadian thing... fries with cheese curd and gray... kinda sounds scary if you ask me :)

I've been to Montreal a few times and I LOVE it there! Last summer I spent a week and most of it was spent in the Mile End and the Plateau walking around. Sounds like a great trip!
