Our Canadian Road Trip
Last weekend we hired a car and drove up to Montreal. Almost made it there before having to stop and bunk the night at a hotel in Brockville (spelt something like that). got going again pretty early to get to Montreal about 11.30. Because we werent sure where we were heading, we took the scenic route over all 3 of Montreals bridges to make our way to the casino. We walked pretty much in and out there, (it has nothing on Melbourne) but at least did buy a better map so we had an idea about where we were going.
Found our way to Old Montreal where they had street performers and we wandered around the small shops hidden there and found some great bargins!
A bit of souviner shopping fun. Dont ask about what was in the background, lol, thats just where i happened to be standing at the time.
After that we searched for a hotel, and quickly realised that one star accomodation should really have been like -60 stars, so we then started looking at 2 stars.
Once settled into our motel and having got a parking fine, we headed out to find somewhere to have tea. Found a great pub/restaurant called les 3 Bassiers (oh yeah, everything was wirtten in French, very little English around anywhere, making it quite difficult to order tea) and we had a great waiter serve us (so tipped him well!!!).
This is our dessert, was really yum.
Baz and I shared 2 pitchers so as u could imagine I was starting to get pretty happy.
After tea we wandered around headed out to a pub which had a nightclub upstairs so we boogied the night away, well a couple of hours anyways but we jus got too hot and sick of being bumped into so back to the hotel we went.
Myself, Barry and Liss at the pub.
Had a great night sleep, got up and organised ouselves for a quick drive around town before it was time to head off again.
