I heart Montréal- just spent Wednesday to Sunday enjoying fascinating sessions on bilingual and francophone language development and sharing the city I loved for two years with Andrew.
Here are some highlights of our trip! (warning- lots of pictures!)
I discovered Katrin Leblond's wonderful, hand made, sustainable clothing boutique. And bought fun hand felted and recycled copper earrings and one of her beautifully hand sewn organic cotton dresses. Yay!
Ahimsa Yoga and had to snap a picture- Eco Yoga anyone? Funnily enough, I met the owner about an hour later- and she even recognized me as 'Eco Yogini'!! We got to visit her studio and it is GORGEOUS. Wish I could have practiced there!
le cagibi, was so cute and incredibly 'Montréal'. Also filled with hilarious roller derby-ers with jersey's that said 'The Silencer' and 'Dolly Parts'em'.
Aux vivres': an amazing Vegan restaurant. Now, we may not be converted, but it was a fantastic Montréal experience! I ate a Buddha Bowl, and he had a Garden Burger. Mine was fabulous, but let's just say Andrew still loves beef-made burgers (hah, he said 'It's not terrible' which is high praise for carnivorous Andrew).
Les Entretiens. It was a fun meal filled with yummy crêpes (pomme, noix et brie) in a space with First Nations Art on the wall, a baby grand piano with a jazz pianist on the right with delicious mocha in a BOWL. As you can see, Andrew is experiencing coffee in a bowl as you can only in Montréal.
