I've been spending a lot of time in Montreal over the past couple of months and I've put together a list of things to do in my favourite neighbourhood.

*waves shyly*

Hey, guys! It's been a while! To be fully transparent I did put the blog aside in the past couple of months simply because I've had to face unexpected hardships in my personal life that I am now only slowly recovering from. As I value my privacy, I will not get into the nitty gritty details of it all but I will admit that it's been pretty shitty. Getting back in the groove of things now, working on a half-dozen posts, looking at travel plans once more. Bear with me as I navigate through this unchartered territory.

Thanks, everyone.
