This weekend Sean and I went to Montreal as you know. It was a short but fun trip. I love Montreal and even though we were gone and back within 24 hours, a getaway is always nice. Here’s a little sneak peek of what we got up to!
Only packed one small Sully Wong overnight bag for the trip. I’ve become a master at packing lite!
It’s quite lovely taking the Via Rail in the daytime. We sat at the front of our car and were able to experience the beautiful trip in the sunshine. The sun was so bright the car was heating up, it felt like summer!
There’s wifi on the train so we were able to get a bunch of work done. Sean’s beard is getting so big!
Huge thank you to Fairmont Montreal for all the treats they sent to our room. A bowl of fresh fruit and a card arrived just after we checked in. We popped over to the Apple Store to pick up a HDMI cable so we could watch some House of Cards and plan our night.
Next they sent a gift bag with our media passes and some delicious chocolate treats from a French patisserie.

We stopped into a church on rue Sainte-Catherine for a poetry reading in the pews before heading to Place des Arts to see all the action.
There was heaps going on! We walked through a couple domed filled with winter activites before heading up the stairs to try the ZIPLINE. It was longer than I thought and went over the entire crowd at Place des Arts. Huge thanks to Montreal tourism for the media passes because we were able to skip the line!
Nuit Blanche Montreal was definitely a different experience than Toronto but one not to miss. It wasn’t too cold once you got outside and heading from one place to the next. We had heaps of fun cruising the streets and checking out all the different activities. There were over 200 events taking place that night and we only got to see the tip of the iceberg. Check out all the activities at montrealenlumiere.com.
Thank you Tourismé Montreal, Via Rail, and Fairmont Montreal for sending us on an adventure. Can’t wait to get back to Montreal this summer and experience activities in the sunshine!
