Here are my favourite photos from the day!
|... some giant tropical fish... Oh, and a handsome boyfriend!|
|... and this resting guy (a yacare caiman), who was all teeth!|
|Me, amidst the tropical greenery!|
|Finally, the sub-Antarctic Islands ecosystem brought us some penguins! Such an amazing sight to witness in-person. Here is a group of them, just chillin' :)|
|And Adam made a new friend!|
Overall, I'd recommend the Biodome to anyone! Such a rich, interesting, (adorable!) place to visit!
|The walk up St. Laurent brought some lovely shops, including some fantastic vintage offerings, as well as this ultra fun and colourful wall art :)|
|For dinner, we stuffed our faces at Aux Vivres on St. Laurent, an amazing vegan spot! I had this vegan Caesar salad with capers, grilled tofu, and coconut "bacon" bits. So yummy! |
|We did a bit more wandering, and we stumbled across this castle. Strike that. It's a fire station! Leave it to a historic city like Montreal to create a fire house from such a mastic building :)|
|And finally, a beautiful Montreal sunset! |
So there you have it! I must say that my first experience in Montreal was nothing but wonderful. We saw a perfect smattering of sites and found the locals to be friendly and incredibly patient with my rustiness en francais. The history behind the city is evident and the spirit of openness was palpable. A truly lovely place to visit!
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek through my travel photos! Have you ever been to Montreal? Where have you visited lately?
Thanks for reading! xo
