I wish to travel to all the destinations around the world. I am inquisitive by nature which is why I am a curious traveler too. I have always had my bucket list, and I try to tick one destination of that bucket list each year. One of the places on my bucket list is Montreal. This is a famous place in Canada. Canada is a vast place and has so many places which one should explore. This time I wanted to spend some time in Montreal and get to know more about it.
I have been to various places and destinations in groups and with my family. So, I wanted this trip to be different and unique. So, I decided to go on a solo trip. I have never been to any place alone, so I was a bit nervous and excited at the same time.
I landed at the Montréal–Trudeau International Airport and took a cab to my hotel, "four seasons hotel Montreal," and relaxed a bit. As I knew it was a solo trip, I pre-planned everything to don't end up in any mess. After getting freshened up, the first thing I did was to grab my meal. I was starving, so I went to one of the restaurants my friend told me about, Damas restaurant. I tried various dishes there and loved all of them.
The next day started with my visit to the 'Montreal museum of fine arts. I love to see the impressive art collection of the destinations I visit. This museum also impressed me a lot with its collection. I clicked so many pictures of the artworks. After exploring the museum, I headed to 'Jardin botanique Montreal,' which means Montreal's botanical garden. The life we live in a city does not allow us to spend time with ourselves. Being on a solo trip allowed me to spend a very joyous yet peaceful time at that garden. After spending some time at these places, I went back to my room and dozed off as I knew tomorrow would be a long day for me as I as planned to visit many places.
On the next day, I first did my favorite thing, which was shopping. 'Rue Sainte-Catherine' is the chief shopping street of Montreal. This street has the stores of many high-end brands and many stores too. I bought many things for myself as well as for my family. Then I went to 'Old Montreal,' which is the place which one should not miss. I love knowing about a city's culture, and there is no better place than Old Montreal to learn about the culture of this city. I enjoyed sitting and having coffee at the sidewalk cafes of this street. There were many other shopping centers too. After exploring this street, there are many other places too which I visited. Some of them are-
- Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours Chapel
- Centre d'Histoire de Montreal
- Museum of Archaeology and History
- Barbie Expo
- Montreal Holocaust Museum
After a long day, I came back to the hotel. After being here for some days, it was time to get back home. I had a fantastic solo trip, and this trip will always remain most special. I had my flight back home the following day. I have always trusted Alaska airlines, so I also made Alaska Airlines Reservations and boarded my flight way back home. I am reminiscing the memories of this beautiful trip.
