Bienvenue à Montreal

It’s reading break here. I thought about going home, but the price was just too prohibitive considering the short timeframe. So then I was going to just stay here and do schoolwork and work on my novel for NaNoWriMo all week. But then one of my classmates who comes from Montreal invited me to go spend a couple of days with him. So, I bought a last minute train ticket and took off to the most bilingual city in Canada (fortunately for me since I haven’t taken French since I was 13!).

It was an amazing whirlwind of a trip and I am so appreciative to have gotten to go. If it were not for the French thing I could definitely see myself living there. Now back to schoolwork!
