I’m going to try to do a little post from the hubby’s new iPad. We splurged on the new toy because we wanted to use it on vacation- in Canada! That’s right, you faithful readers, I’m in the northern United States, aka Canada. We hopped on a short flight and headed north- anywhere cooler than home. And as an added bonus, we get a cheap European vacation. We’re spending a few days here in Montreal, and then taking the scenic train up to Quebec for a few days. So here’s a quick recap of our awesome first (full) day:
First off, this is a fantastic city. It’s old and new, dense and spacious, and did I mention how cool it is? Today’s high was in the mid to upper 70s. Gorgeous! We rented two bikes from the city-wide bike system, the Bixi.
Then we rode about 7 kilometers along the riverfront to the Botanical Gardens.
