We're traveling to New York a the end of June, then off to beautiful (and so unlike L.A.) Bennington Vermont where we have a house. (I'll blog about the house another time.)
I had a micro-tantrum, stomped my feet and expressed the desire to go somewhere new this year. So it is that we will be spending a few days in Montreal.
MONTREAL CANADA, BABY!!!!
Yikes! Montreal? Canada? What have i done? Now it's up to me to find a place to stay and i am absolutely hopeless at planning a trip of any sort. See, I'm a confident virtual traveler who dreams of faraway places and adventures, but the reality is that the non-virtual (also called actual) me is an utter and complete chicken.
And I get overwhelmed with choices. So far I must have looked a 10,000 website and blogs, and I'm no more enlightened as to where to go, what to do or where to stay. I'm afraid because I want to go everywhere, do everything and stay everywhere, but the way it's going I'll probably end up going nowhere, doing nothing and booking the most horrid room in the most undesirable location. Or such is the fear.
Can you help? Do you know what part of Montreal is best, do you know of a quaint bed an breakfast, or a small hotel? Where to eat? What website or blog to guide me through this?
