Montreal

View over Montreal from the 'Mont Royal'

View over Montreal from the Mont Royal

The period from August 29 to October 1, 2018, was rather eventful: first we traveled to Ireland for ten days. Six days after we got back to Cannes, we flew to North Carolina, one day earlier than planned because of hurricane Florence. One week after we arrived in Chapel Hill, we went to Baltimore for a couple of days of sightseeing, and eight days after we got back from there, we flew to Montreal for three days. Normally, we would not pack so much into such a short time, but sometimes things just work out that way. In Montreal, we had a wonderful Airbnb in walking distance to everything we wanted to see, and it's not until we left for the airport three days later that we had to board a bus again. We enjoyed Montreal a great deal; neither one of us had been there before, and we're glad we visited when we did: a couple of weeks later it may have gotten a tad to chilly for us. So yes, it was a pretty hectic time, but it was all great fun—and yielded a few pages for this site!
