montreal: love of beauty

A few years ago, my best friend and I decided we needed to get out of gloomy Milwaukee. We really wanted Europe but had a budget of Cleveland. After finding some coupon codes that get you from Toronto to Montreal on ViaRail for about 50 bucks round trip, we knew that this destination was a possibility. We filled up our gas tank, jumped in the car for the eight (ish?) hour drive from Milwaukee to Toronto, spent a little time there, then boarded for Montreal, and it was AWESOME.

Everyone knows that Montreal is a city with awesome architecture, and delicious poutine. What we didn’t know before we got there was that it is a mecca for art lovers. From the Notre Dame Cathedral, to the museums and galleries, to the streets, Montreal was eye candy.

Take a look and consider a trip!

And don’t forget Celine Dion, the great artist from Quebec. We made a special point to karaoke our hearts out, a hightlight from our trip!

Bon voyage!
