Travel With Me – Old Port, Canada
Montreal holds a very special place in my heart. I lived there for 7 years, on and off, the longest being 5 years when I went to McGill University for my undergrad. I left my family in Brunei, hoped on a plane and somehow managed to survive by myself for five long years. I’ve had some of the best and worst days of my life in this city. And somewhere along the way, Montreal became home.
It’s impossible for me to share my Montreal experiences in one blog post. So for now, I’ll talk about Old Port. Old Port stretches over the St-Lawrence River in Old Montreal. The place has always felt magical, almost like a fairy-tale love story setting. Cobblestone streets, fairy lights, boats, train tracks and lots of food options (magical, right?). If you go to Montreal, visiting Old Port is a must! Whether its -15 or 30 degrees, this place has something to offer. From ice-skating under the bright winter stars to carnivals and shows in the summer, you will not regret spending the day here. Finish off with having dinner or dessert in one of the many different restaurants you’ll find there. I actually took my husband to Jardin Nelson in Old Port for lunch when he came to visit me in Montreal for the first time (and he was definitely impressed!) 🙂
Enjoy the pictures and let me know if you have a magical place you like escaping to! ❤
