je t'aime ♥ montreal

Montreal is such a lovely city! next time i'm back i'll be speaking french. i felt like such a tool responding in english. there were several times i tried to play it cool and respond in french but then i'd get bombarded with questions where my responses were a mere "oui" or "non" most questions are closed ended right? Rosetta Stone here i come :) any who. i was only in the city for 2 nights and 3 days. day 1 was a freakin' snow storm, day 2 rain and sun, day 3 beautiful skies but of course we're leaving. if you plan on visiting this cute european inspired city go for july/aug. you can get around downtown on foot, transit, or better yet a bike. here are the photos
Old Montreal


Montreal has a sweet art scene


this city was undergoing a major face lift! there's construction on every other block.


the Palais des Congres de Montreal aka Convention Center



another sweet art gallery. the mannequins have inspired me for the new pad



a smart and fun idea: public transit on pedals. pay by the hour.
