2014 - Montreal (Day 1)

Today we finish with Ottawa and head to Montreal.

The drive is about 2.5 hours away. About half way there we stopped at an information center that provided us with a lot more information than expected and it was all free. They provided us with maps and provided us details for what we could see during Carnival in Quebec.  Very useful.

We got to our hotel (Auberge le pomerol) which is about a 10 minute walk to the east end of Old Montreal. The feel for this place is very different compared to the other times that I have been here. For a Monday afternoon, this area is really quiet. There really aren't that many people here.

We had a really late lunch at Cafe Titanic in Old Montreal which was recommended by a lady who was waiting in line with us for the slides yesterday. The place was okay. Afterwards we wandered a bit more and stopped by Les Glaceurs, a cupcake and ice cream shop. Very good cupcakes! It is right by the Notre Dame.


Wandered along Saint-Catherines and called it a night.

Tomorrow, we head to Manchester Vermont to do some shopping and some sightseeing.
