Montreal & Ottawa
Aug 2011
Planning for our trip to Montreal and Ottawa can only be described as fluid. It started out as a trip to Michigan and before we knew it we were flying to Montreal. We spent 5 days waking around Montreal and exploring the sites. All of the kilometers that we walked were offset by eating tons of amazing French food at a variety of sidewalk cafes. After 5 days of enjoying Québécois hospitality we rented a car and drove to Ottawa where we got to experience the British ceremonial and political side of Canada. I honestly did not how much there was that I didn't know about Canada. It was a really educational trip. The last day of our trip was spent in Perth, Ontario, where we went to the Perth Garlic Festival which was a ton of fun and a delicious experience!
