Montreal weekend

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

This past long weekend, I went to Montreal. I really do enjoy Montreal. It has great food and lovely architecture and it’s so close yet when you’re there, you feel like you’re in a different country. I like the idea of practicing my French there, but people are so bilingual…that I’m afraid once I speak French they reply back and I’m like ??? We drove down this time around and it took us about 5 hours. Just some highlights from this trip included: Premiere Moisson almond croissants and creme brulee,  the Osheaga Festival where we got The National and Arcade Fire. So good! Also, delicious macarons from Boutique Point G. I have to say, these are the best macarons I have tasted yet and a steal at $1.50 each. Flavours I got: maple syrup, grilled pistachio, madacasgar vanilla, apricot black tea, chocolate, caramel salt, lime and basil and creme brulee. It’s a bit of a kitschy place which makes it pretty inviting. They also sell gelato there!

 

 

 

I was really impressed by Bixi. Which is Montreal’s public bike system. There are stations throughout the city and you sign up by subscribing to the service based on your needs. It’s really useful. They’re supposedly bringing this to Toronto but not sure if it’s going to happen.

Arcade Fire @ Osheaga, can you even tell?
