As soon as I arrived in Montreal, I knew I would live here. It was love at first sight. I had a feeling of belonging in this city as I was looking out the window when train arrived.
The first time I came to Montreal was in the summer of 2014. I came to visit Brandon who already lived here. I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy the summer here!
My favorite thing about Montreal is how many parks and cafes there are. I love seeing people riding their bikes and walking down the streets. The city is so pictures.
Montreal has so many different districts, all with a different vibe and look. Most of them have a little shopping and food area. They are all connected through metro train and bus making it very easy to navigate through the city.
You can find a little bit of everything here in Montreal. We have many markets, we have lots of green areas the busy downtown and more easy going neighborhoods.
I live in Griffintown, my favorite place in Montreal. I have always been and forever will be a city girl. I love that we have everything around us. Anything you can think of is walking distance! We have downtown to do all the shopping. Old Montreal is literally down the street to feel like in Europe. The Lachine Canal is a great place to be outdoors, walk have picnics and go on bike rides. If you get hungry there are lots of trendy super cool restaurants and cafes, the best part is that you can bring your dog to so many of them! Pharmacies, banks, grocery stores they are all on my way to the kids school and park. I love that even though we are so close to downtown we are still able to have a family oriented lifestyle as well. We have a great community center with amazing classes for the children and children parks every few blocks.
I love my lifestyle in Montreal! Being able to walk everywhere really makes me feel so privileged. This is so good for our health and for our environment and it is the example I want to give to my children.
