Montreal 2.0: Day 4

Today, we were finally able to have a relaxing, sit-down breakfast. The restaurant we went to was Universal Déjeuner, which served traditional breakfast items.

Montreal 2.0: Day 2

It was a miserable, rainy day, as we headed over to the Atwater Market for some exploration and a light breakfast. It reminded me of Granville Island in Vancouver or the Byward Market in Ottawa.

Unfortunately, they had a bit of a wait (20-30 minutes) and we had to check out in 1 hour so we decided to defer our visit till next time.

Prince Edward County: Day 1

For a simple August long weekend getaway, we decided to head to Prince Edward County for some food, wine and relaxation. We’ve been here a few years ago and took a guided wine tour already, so we wanted to do our own exploring this time. We left Ottawa at around 10am and after a short… Continue reading Prince Edward County: Day 1
