Left Europe, Paris and flew to Montreal for a week to take in Quebec National Day then finish the month back in home sweet home, Calgary.
|The revamped Orly in Paris, nice...|
Five days in Montreal and my first steps in Canada in a few months. Staying with another Motorbike buddy/ traveller, JP, who I met in Buenos Aires in 2012/13. Lots of fun, food, bikes and parties to attend on St. Jean Baptist Day weekend. Thanks JP!
Recommendations: Le Balthazar, Le Fameux, Eric Lapointe!
Favourite quote of the weekend: I said "2 beers please" The server at the festival said "You only want two?"

And then it was time to make my way to the Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport, which isn't as simply as it seems. An express bus in to town, a little walk, then an express bus to the airport (when they stop for you). Good -bye Quebec.

The all new over due Champlain Bridge. $4.5 Billion. Thanks Canada, I was one of the first 1000s to pass over it!
