It’s about time I post some photographs from Montreal. If you follow me on Instagram, some of these photographs might look familiar, but I just love them so much. If you don’t follow me, I highly recommend you do 🙂 Plus, my Insta Stories are ridiculously hilarious; or at least I think so.
Anyway, Montreal is the land of coffee and street art; so basically, Heaven. Enjoy scrolling 🙂

It’s the only kind in the world with an indoor zoo, aquarium and botanical garden all in one; the series of ecosystems recreates the four seasons. It’s located in the heart of the 1976 Olympic Village.It felt so cool going from room to room and seeing the ecosystems. The palms were my favorite. I also filmed a penguin video that makes me happy 🙂Last, but not least, there is so much street art every at every corner. I love how artists are able to showcase their work to the public in such a creative way. These were some of my favorite pieces.
I loved exploring Montreal! Even though it was so cold at the beginning of January, I feel like Dina and I explored a lot under the freezing and snowy circumstances. We had a lot of fun and I really can’t wait to go back to this beautiful city and country.

Montmorency Falls in Quebec, Canada, was one of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen. I know TLC said not to chase waterfalls, but I just can’t help myself – I LOVE WATERFALLS. It’s just something about their majestic beauty and grandeur. I’ve been driving people nuts talking non-stop about Canada, but I truly never expected to love it as much as I did. A summer trip might already be in the works..
Only two crazy girls would go somewhere colder than Chicago for winter break, but I’m truly grateful that my best friend went along with this insane idea. We had one of the best vacations together ever. In fact, I’m pretty sure we’d both rather be in Canada right now. We split our trip between Montreal and Quebec City. I highly recommend both cities. There is just so much charm everywhere and you truly feel like you’re in Europe.
My other crazy idea is to start learning French. I took a semester of French in the sixth grade and remembered a few phrases from my older sister and long and behold, I had those French-Canadians think I knew French! Everybody was extremely friendly and very helpful when we inquired about random stuff.
Anyway, back to the Falls. We took an Uber to the Falls from Old Town in Quebec City, where we were staying, and about thirty minutes later we arrived. There was no entrance fee and we walked around the grounds for a few hours. Right away we were taken aback by all the natural beauty. Honestly, I think the snow made everything look purer and it made us forget about how cold it was that day. Montmorency Falls is actually about thirty meters taller than Niagara Falls (which is on my Canada list). There are also many activities to partake in while there like riding the cable cars, snowshoeing, zip- lining (in the summer), etc. The suspended bridge above the Falls was sooo cool. I never expected to get such great views! The sound of the water and feeling the bridge move a bit made it so thrilling to walk across the bridge! Needless to say, definitely put Montmorency Falls on your bucket list!
