43 Hours in Montreal

I freakin' love this town!

So, I may have been there for all of 43 hours, but not a moment was wasted.

Coming later today - and continuing on and on and on - is K Went Shopping in Montreal theme week.

Stay tuned for pics and details on the following highlights:
  • My experience at Headquarters Galerie and Boutique (in a word, awesome!)
  • Walking and cabbing and metro-ing through rain and shine. And the rain was torrential...
  • Going to the YSL exhibit at the Musee de Beaux Arts
  • Shopping on St. Denis and St. Laurent and St. Catherine and de la Montagne and the list goes on. The purchases are sooooo fun!
  • Seeing Wall-e at the AMC (formerly the Montreal Forum, now a movie complex?!). In brief, DO NOT TAKE YOUR KID to see this. Total trauma will ensue. 3 hours of crying. Cartoon is not for children. Or adults with any issues about the state of the world.
  • My awesome hotel, the Gault, where everyone should stay at least once because it is so beautiful and luxurious, it will thrill you.
  • Yummy food.


  1. I am so glad you had a great time. You deserve it. I can't wait to see your pics!

  2. I'm on tenterhooks waiting to hear all about it! :D

  3. One of these days I would love to get myself over there. I think if I knew people there it would justify the horrendous flight times from Australia, but until then I'll just have to rely on your list of wonderful for motivation.

  4. Well, SKM, if you go to Mtl. you must visit me in TO. It's practically next door (when compared to the distance from AUS). Have you ever been to North America? I would love to go to Australia but, as you mention, it's a very tough slog and also quite pricey - esp. when you hotel it all the way... Someday I'll get there, though. I hear Melbourne has one of the highest living qualities of any city in the world.
