Montreal and surroundings

After a long time, I’m on a longer trip and there are some people which are interested to know about it and how I’m doing. Thus, I’m going to write a little bit again something here and maybe add some notes from previous trips which I wanted to write but didn’t feel for it yet.

Now to the current adventure. I’ve managed to get a longer vacation from a work and on July I went to Prague to catch a direct flight to Montreal. Here at the airport I got picked up by my friend who will accompanied me for this part of the trip.

First of all, we looked a bit around Montreal but since he had also a vacation we booked a small pickup for trip north. In the morning once we got to the rental company we’ve learned that we got a Nissan Titan which is much bigger then what we expected but I always wanted to try to drive one of these and now I got the chance. We were heading towards a Mount Tremblant where we had checked it around and had accommodation by Airbnb next to a beautiful lake. We though that we might kemp in the provincial park there but since it wasn’t something we planned at the beginning and didn’t bring any food along we realized it won’t be possible since park stores did not really have anything to eat what we could use.

So, we returned to Montreal and next day went east towards Sherbrooke, where it is also really nice and in Bromont we hiked the local hill to see more around. I have to say the view from the top was not worth the effort, but in the area, they have really nice single treks and also an aquapark. Both looked pretty good.

Then we returned to the city to work a little bit and go to another trip to Ottawa, where we checked surroundings and the city and met with friends which lives there now. We stayed the night with them and then went to check another provincial park on a way to Toronto. I wanted to meet with other friends living there. On a way we went to Petroglyph park where they should have the highest number of petroglyphs on a single place in Canada. We both enjoyed this park and the beautiful places which offers as much as mosquitoes enjoyed our blood 😊

However, now I’m on my own as I took a train to Halifax to visit friends and all these beautiful places I got to know when I lived here.
