This blogging on the road isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Attending a conference with a very early start time, walking to the conference venue and back again, taking and preparing images and sending emails all take up time. Before I know it, the day is over and it's time for bed and I haven't written a blog post. So before time runs out again I thought I'd post some images from Old Montreal.

le petit hotel

I stayed in a quaint little hotel called Le Petit Hotel with the most comfortable bed in which I'd ever slept. After my epic journey I was sorely tempted to stay there all day but I forced myself out to explore.

I took myself on a self guided walking tour of the old city and started at Place D'Armes. This was my favourite building in the square, the Aldred Building - very Gotham City.

The lobby was equally as impressive and yes that is a beaver on the mailbox.



Here are some details from the old port area, the Cours de Royer, Marche Bonsecours and La Maison de Mère d'Youville. Mary Youville founded the Grey Nuns of Montreal and the Edmonton General Hospital, where I once worked, was run by the Grey Nuns.

I walked along the old port and found this amazing old grain silo and some fall colour.

I found this great sculpture outside one of the many art galleries on Rue St Paul

Technically this photo was taken just outside Old Montreal in the Place Des Artes but I decided to throw it in anyway. I still have a few more images to post from Montreal but I'll need to leave that for another post.

Until the next time then,

    1. Hi Juliana,

      so nice to hear from you. I always think people stop reading the blog when I leave the country! Tomorrow is my last day attending seminars then it's on to to New York. I can't wait,
