Definitely Canada gets my vote. Lots to see and do here. My friend from New York who visited Montreal for the first time recently, swears that the most beautiful guys and gals in the world reside in Montreal. How about them apples?
I've left Mtl 4 years ago so I'm sure much has changed since. But between Kimmie and Isa, I think we have that covered! (and I'll do my best too)
I'd recommend Toronto but Montreal has a much cozier athmosphere, not to mention that everything costs about a third less. Old-Montreal was my ol' stomping ground. As far as I'm concerned, for a weekend it's got everything that you could want!
I'll start saving my pennies and cross my fingers for a good date (on the calendar, that is! ) I'll have to practice my French, with is rusty, to say the least! Bet I can get my husband to come along this time!
I'm sure Kimmie will agree that we both could help plan activities, find hotel, suggest restaurants, take everyone on a culinary shopping trip around town and help with whatever else you all have in mind.
The Government of Quebec will also be happy to have you come visit and will send you tourist information should you ask them.
I love Montreal!
People there are so friendly and nice. I have been practicaly everywhere, I have visited the five continents, but Montreal is one of my best travel destinations and the natural beauty of Canada it's so...
I haven't seen such a Nature before!!!!
On of the main reasons for going back to the States is to visit Canada again!
Here's an unrealistic thought!
Let's rent a tour bus and go from Montreal up to Nova Scotia and then work our way back across Canada to CoolJ's house in Kamloops. BC is beyond Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have never been ANYWHERE in Canada, which is downright shameful. So it would be great to go and meet people who know the town.
I've also wanted to check out Seattle for a long time now - it's supposed to be a great town, too- I think we have a few Cheftalk folks out there, don't we?
I need the names of some great B&Bs in Montreal.
Also, Any wonderful Bistros or cafes you can recommend.
Raclette,warm potatoes and cornichons with grain mustard would set me at ease. Perhapes with Vouvrey
