The Museum of Archeology and the Museum of fine Art should be must dos if you go to Montreal. On my recent visit I went to both and interviewed representatives from each. Hear about both of these exceptional cultural stops on this podcast.
The year 2017 will be a 12 month series of celebrations as the great city of Montreal parties from beginning to end. It has been 50 years since the World Exposition of 1967 changed Montreal forever. It’s Canada’s 150 since Confederation, and 375 years since the founding of Montreal.
On this Montreal day we discouvered a number of areas of the city. Going back to the place of Expo67 was emotional, and the view from the mountain was spectacular.
Always one of my favourite Canadian cities I am back on a December media trip on the eve of celebrations of its 375th year since its founding. I start off with a bit of a pilgrimage to the deli my favourite song writer Leonard Cohen often escaped to when he wanted to go back to another time.

These are the opening words to a song Jamaican musicians often play to visitors. I heard it the first time on our first trip a long time ago. Well, for about the 10th time I did go back, this time mostly for golf, but with a bit of touring as well. It’s a fascinating country with a people culture all its own. On this podcast you’ll hear from some of the people who help make it a great country.
From the moment we are greeted as the float plane landed at the lodge until we left four days later we experienced hospitality as good as you will find at any major resort. The staff were amazing. The shore lunches were a treat. And the stories and laugh will stick with us forever.
We were the old and our two grandgirls were the young as we had a wonderful week with them in Riding Mountain National Park on a true intergenerational vacation.
