Montreal 2016

I can't believe I'm uploading a November trip in June. Better late than never right? 
We took a spontaneous trip to Montreal during the weekend we were in Boston. Unfortunately, we weren't able to see much since most of the places were closed on a sunday and it started snowing pretty heavily.
 Our first destination was the Notre Dame Cathedral, similar to the one in Paris. Its facade is not as intricate, but the interior was breathtaking. 
 Saw a couple get enganged in the middle of the square. Huhu my heart. 
When nighttime came I was pretty much drained since I was still jetlagged. We ate really really good steak at a place called The Keg in Old Montreal. I highly recommend it!
 Sunday morning, everything seemed to be closed and Old Montreal seemed like a ghost town. We chanced upon a small museum that discusses the town's history though. 
 After a quick drive past the Olympics stadium (which is very old and outdated) and a lunch at Tim Horton's, we drove back to Boston with the snow falling heavily. Most people would probably rejoice at the sight of it, but I despise it due to previous experiences. :( 
We capped off the night by eating at a delicious korean restaurant in the Woburn area, but it took us around 6 hours to get there because of the snow. After Boston we went to Houston to visit my relatives. Unfortunately I have no photos there because we don't do touristy things when we're there. It was great to experience Thanksgiving and Black Friday in the US for the first time though. 

I can't wait to share with you my photos from our Japan trip last December!

Boston 2016

It was not until our recent trip to Boston that I realized that fall must be the prettiest season of all. I can't wait to see Adelaide change colors for fall. 😍 Coming from our usual hotel we took the train to the city and walked a considerable distance from The Garden to Boston Public Gardens.

I've never seen so many squirrels in my entire life. A lot of them lurked around the visitors of the park and they were very friendly, mostly because they want food.

Unfortunately we no longer had the luxury of time to swing by the Museum of Fine Arts Boston which we already visited last year. Despite staying in Massachusetts for a week we only managed to go to the city once since we drove up to Canada as well...but who am I to complain? I was informed 3 days prior to my flight that I was going to spend Thanksgiving with my family in America. So many things to be thankful for. 😌 

Til the next post.
