My Summer In Canada - Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal11:00
Travelling is something I've wanted to do for quite a few years now. Seeing people on Instagram going on adventures all over the world made me...not going to lie...a tad jealous. The one thing that was stopping me was fear. Fear of getting on a plane alone after only flying once before. Fear of being responsible for making sure I have accommodation. Fear of putting myself out there alone if no one was able to come with me. But I can happily say that no longer bothers me and I now only want to go exploring more.
The next morning we had a good few hours before catching the bus to Montreal so decided to see the city in daylight. We didn't venture too far from the center because we didn't want to risk being short for time.
Day 2 was a bit of a rainy day but none the less, we headed out (at first with no coats how stupid of us) to have a nosy in vintage shops and cute little homeware stores in miles end. Then, as we were pretty wet, changed back at the hostel before heading to a cat cafe that was round the corner. I repeat a cat cafe! I have wanted to eat at a cat cafe for so long and let me just tell you I was sat there the whole time smiling with pure happiness. To top it off, the cafe was vegetarian with many vegan options as well - which was fab. That afternoon, as one of the group has a love for museums and art galleries, we decided to take shelter in the art museum which I actually thoroughly enjoyed. Although, I couldn't help but look at the middle aged art without thinking about classical memes on facebook...oh social media, how you've affected us.
Day 3, and for two of us, our final day in Montreal. As the the other two girls were changing hostels, we all packed up our stuff and headed to the new hostel in the morning. Then around midday we began making out way to Mount Royal, it was pretty darn warm that day but when we got to the top it was worth the view and it was such a nice way to end the exploring part of my trip - as all that was really left to do was travel. On the way down we had some great laughs, not just about our past week together, but about the whole summer. Then as the evening went on, food was eaten and goodbyes where made as the group parted.
