I’ve never really cared about the holidays and we usually don’t do anything extravagant like attend big parties and such. But last year, instead of just sitting at home again on a New Year’s eve, we decided to pack our bags and take a long drive to the closest foreign country. Canada that is. We were hit by the worst snow blizzard half way through, got a little lost at times, and arrived to Montreal around midnight, just a “couple” of hours late, only to notice that our apartment was not cleaned after the previous tenants. So we had to find a hotel and get a room for the night.

All and all Montreal was beautiful, romantic, but not very vegan-friendly. We are talking about taking another trip out there this winter. I’ll make my mission to find the best veg-friendly places.

  1. I LOVE Montreal, maybe because of its European feel… 🙂 Hope you get to go again this winter!

    1. Yes! That's exactly what I felt, the European influence. Loved it there. Would be nice to see it during summer as well, because it was just sooo cold!!!

  2. That bed is ah-mazing!

    1. I know! Amazing, but scary at the same…

  3. I've been to Montreal a few times and find it to be much more vegan friendly than Quebec City for example -That city has 0 vegan restaurant and 1 sort of open veggie place. Montreal's downtown doesn't have tons of vegan places but if you have a car or some other means of transportation you can explore a bit further for some nice vegan places 🙂 But it definitely takes some planning beforehand!

    1. Yes, for our next trip I really need to do my research on veg-friendly places. And since my husband usually wants seafood it's a bit complex. Seafood and vegetarian foods don't usually mix too well in the restaurant world…

  4. A ghost? That is spooky. What's the story on that.,

    1. Yup, I've always been the kind of kid that has these kind of encounters so I kind of felt it in the air as soon as we checked in. I blogged about the ghost story here:

  5. Omg that bed! Gorgeous!

    I want to hear some ghost stories too!

  6. I also loved Montreal, although it was summer time. The hotel looked really fab! I would love to hear the story of the ghost also!!

    1. Yes, Pierre Du Calvet is known for their ghosts interacting with guests. My stoey can be found here:

  7. I've never been to Montreal but really want to go! I love Canada, so I'll have to check it out soon! Fun pictures!

    1. This was my first time in Canada and I really loved Montreal, even it was freezing the entire time. But hey, it's Canada in December so I didn't expect nothing less… 🙂

  8. I should really find my way to Montreal one day!!

    1. It's really pretty! I think we're going back again for New Years! Although I much more would like to go somewhere warm…
