Bienvenue à Montréal!

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Montreal. This was my first trip to Canada’s French province of Quebec. While I was there for work, I did manage to sneak in a bit of sightseeing. Our hotel was located near Old Montreal. Coming from the west where the cities and buildings are all relatively new, Montreal seemed very old and historic to me. Visiting Quebec also gave me an opportunity to practice my French.

I have now visited all the Canadian provinces except Newfoundland, as well as the northern territories. My goal is to visit all the provinces and territories. I’ve had the privilege of travelling extensively in the United States, as well as to Europe, Australia and New Zealand. But sometimes the best experiences are in your own backyard. I feel Canada has a lot to offer and I plan to see it all.

I enjoyed my time in Montreal. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it’s my favourite place I’ve travelled but I’m happy I was able to visit. I feel this way about most of the places I’ve been. Thankful that I was able to experience it but also happy to go home. Home to the Canadian Prairies, the best place in the world.

Here are some photos from my French experience in Montreal.
