  • Marche Jean Talon

    Marche Jean Talon

    Another trip to our beloved Montreal. We’ve been living in Vermont for less than two years and we’ve been eight times. Each time, our heart swells a little more by how much we love Montreal. Casey and I call our last trip our best trip, because we did it all right. We brought guests with…

    Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal

    This trip was our first time spending the night! And our first time using public transport. By now, we knew our way around and could lead others around the city.

    Montreal Botanical Garden & Museum of Fine Arts

    Our first foray up to Montreal was with two of our friends from California. Surprise – the border crossing was extremely easy and it took only 1.5 hours to make it to downtown. We walked around the Montreal Museum of Art and then the Botanical Gardens. Because it was our first time there, we chose…
