Iqaluit

It hasn't even been a month since we've moved to Iqaluit. It has yet to sink in - that I am now living here and will be living here for quite some time. So far, the sunsets here have been to die for, gorgeous viewpoints, and the outskirts of this town are so pristine it gets me emotional. This windproof jacket has been a godsent for exploring. It's so windy here! As a new resident in town, many have already wished me luck towards the coming of winter, but; I can't say I'm too worried, I'll deal. Stay tuned for more blog posts!

Reasons to visit Quebec City


 Quebec City is one of the most romantic and quaint cities I have ever been to. I felt the cobble stone roads complete me. I am such a sucker for little things like that! Not only is it absolutely beautiful, there is so much history in this city and so much to learn. I definitely left here appreciating Canada on a different scale and with much more knowledge of French-Canadian history.  It was such a pleasure and honour spending time in this city.

Things to do in Montreal

Tam Tams on Sunday! 
Montreal was a transitioning city for us. I overheard some people calling it the "New York of Canada". I have to say, everyone certainly dresses well! Kyle and I made it a point to accomplish a list of some touristy duties: 

1. One of the first places I was recommended was Mont Royal. It is a lookout viewpoint of the city. It was absolutely beautiful. I am sure it looks incredible at night as well. 

2. One of our favourite experiences was going to the Tam-Tams on Sunday. Every sunday there is a gathering of drum playing and dancing. It's really neat and I would definitely suggest you go if you are in Montreal for the weekend! We packed our lunch and wine and made a day out of it :)

3. Ste Catherine. This street comes alive on the weekends. So many foodtrucks and foodshacks, it's awesome. There were lots of vegan options for us as well. 

All in all, Montreal is a bilingual city; however, I do wish I had paid more attention during french class. Our stay in Montreal has really inspired me to get going on learning French. I asked Kyle to order me a french book on Amazon - for me to practice hehe.

Hope this was helpful for anyone visiting Montreal for the first time. x.
