WELCOME TO BADEN-BADEN

Ever since I was a little girl I felt in love with Baden-Baden. My family and I moved from Argentina to Germany when I was 5 years old. We moved to a small town called Bühl. Lovely place. You know, where you can find the perfect ice cream place. The people are very friendly and almost everyone knows each other.

But one of my goals were to live in Baden-Baden. Its about 20 minutes away from Bühl. The city is full of flowers, old buildings, huge parks and most of all, it is within the Black Forest area.

When my husband and I got married in 2016, we made it a goal to move there. Finally one year later at the end of 2017, we were able to move to Baden-Baden. We found a place on a hill. Every time you open the window you hear peace coming into your house. Our living room window is big, big enough to let the sun reach our walls. I am in love with our apartment. I am in love with our neighbourhood.

It takes us a 10 minutes walk to get to work. You will pass an old castle, with a huge garden. As soon as you get to downtown you will reach the shopping street. Stores, Restaurants, Cafes and so many, but for reals, so many ice cream places, it will reach your spirit. As soon as you reach the Lichtentaler Allee you will fall in love with the trees and flowers. If you are a runner like me, there are plenty of kilometers for you to reach then.

You can find many nice places to take your pictures and collect your memories. I can’t get enough from this beautiful and elegant city.

WELCOME TO MONTREAL

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.

LOVE,

ELA
