    Mont Royal = Montreal

    August 19, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 77 °F

    Bonjour! This morning Amanda and I ventured out on the Metro to seek out the best bagels in Montreal. Our expectations were exceeded at St. Viateur in the Le Plateu-Mont Royal neighborhood. We're hoping to swing by again on Monday to bring some bagels with us on the rest of our road trip. After exploring the neighborhood for awhile and popping into some thrift stores, we entered the Parc du Mont Royal. A note for other visitors: we could find no signage reflecting trails, and there were only intermittent signs pointing in the direction of a few different attractions. I think it's safe to say we were both a little demoralized by the wandering in the woods, with no view or activities for pay off. However, we ended up walking up a very long staircase, thinking there might be at least some view and we could give up on finding the Chalet. And, surprise! It was a shortcut to our destination (as much as hundreds of stairs can be a shortcut). We were rewarded with a cool breeze, beautiful views, washrooms, water, and ice cream. Success!

    On our way out of the park, we discovered a much more populated and approachable entrance, near the L'Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal Cathedral. We recommend both that entrance to the park and the Cathedral itself. It is the second tallest cathedral dome in the world after St. Peter's in Vatican City.

    Montreal - Mont Royal

    September 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We took the early Greyhound Express service between Ottawa and Montreal, which took about 2.5h.

    We could directly check in and had time to discover the neighbourhood - we didn't really had a plan for this day.

    So we wanted to go to Mont Royal to get an overview of the city.. we did, however, underestimate the hills which dominate the city.. and so it was a lot of walking up and down and getting lost 😁

    In the end, we found our way to the top and could enjoy the view.

    Mount Montreal

    After a very short, but quick, climb up to the wooden charlet and through the park up the hill ww have been able to gain some great views over the city - side by side with all the other tourists which drove up by bus and car. :S
