This isn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last post dedicated to Montreal shenanigans, but I thought this past weekend was worthy of its own MIMM. Remember that time I wrote a post welcoming C to Toronto? Psych! He ended up taking a new job, which requires 5 months of training in Montreal so back to long distance we go! It’s all good though. If there’s any city in the world I would want to be visiting frequently it’s Montreal. I spent 4 years there for school so it will always have a soft spot in my heart.
This past weekend was different than my years as a student and many other visits. Rather than living in the student ghetto or Plateau area C has an apartment in The Old Port which is an entirely different experience. If you’ve ever been to Montreal than you know The Old Port is well, old. It’s pretty reminiscent of Europe with it’s cobblestone streets and beautiful stone buildings. If you’ve never been…GO.

The plan was to drive from Toronto to Montreal on Friday, move C in and then take a day trip to Vermont for some hiking on Saturday. But rain and other circumstances prevented the day trip. When we got to the loft on Friday let’s just say its condition was less than stellar. It’s also up 4 very steep and long flights of stairs so we “beast moded” the move. We ended up spending most of Friday night cleaning (and polishing off a bottle of wine) so when we woke up Saturday morning the last thing we wanted to do was drive 2.5 hours and hike a mountain. It all worked out though and we ended up having a phenomenal weekend in Montreal. I thought I would share the highlights and of course some delicious eats with you!
