It’s time to go home. It was a sad departure from Montreal but we were still happy to get back to our warm Californian winter.
Here we are back in Montreal again. I guess we did a little circle from Montreal to Quebec City and right back to Montreal. But our first day in Montreal, we were only able to see the evening. But today, we toured through Montreal in the day time. Continue reading Day Seven in Montreal Again
It snowed today! It was our first time seeing real snow! It’s very different than I imagined, because real snow is tiny and soft! Since it was snowing and we didn’t know what else to do in Quebec, we took a tour bus to the countryside to see Montmorency Falls. Continue reading Day Six in Quebec City
Bonjour! To get to Old Quebec City from Montreal, we took the 3 hour VIA train. Then we spent most of the day roaming around and window shopping. The language spoken here is mainly French and so my family was depending on me to help translate. However, I forgot most of my high school French and so we walked around for a while until we realized most of the Quebecoise knew how to speak English. Hooray! Continue reading Day Five in Quebec City
We spent most of today sitting on the Amtrak from New York all the way up to Montreal, Quebec. It was a 10 hour ride and I slept the whole time. (I was trying to make up for lost sleep in New York). When we arrived in Montreal, it was already night time so we didn’t get much touring time. Continue reading Day Four in Montreal
Today was another busy and our final day roaming through the streets of New York. The only time we got to rest was in the subway. My feet hurt even more today and so I had to buy some comforting shoe gels…they work like a charm! Continue reading Day Three in New York
Today, we hit up more famous spots in New York like the Brooklyn Flea Market, Chinatown, Times Square and much more. (We also stopped by SoHo District but I failed to take decent pictures! And Jessica took us to a super delicious ice cream place called “Sundaes and Cones,” and again I didn’t take any good pics.) Our feet were hurting so much because we were walking around nonstop from 8 am til past midnight! Continue reading Day Two in New York
Hello! It’s been a long while since my last post, but it’s not been without good reason!
Today was the beginning of a 8 day adventure and from LAX, my sister, cousin, and I flew for 5 hours to New York for the first time. My first impression of New York was, “It’s super cold! And look at all the tall buildings!” The 30 degrees Fahrenheit weather was a big change for a Californian like me but I had some thermals to help fight off the chill.
