... a lot of cyclist guess it took more than an hour for all to pass-by.
Not much new on the way, mainly the same as last Saturday, but in the opposite direction. The landscape is not the most exciting.

... harbour is turned into a skating rink, it’s pretty huge and has different themed music sessions daily- it also has no rails at all – or penguins to help learners hold onto.
Cross to the other side of port and you get to the marina, in summer there’s a man made beach here with cocktail bar, there is something very sweet about the parasols poking up through the ...
... was also an exhibition of sculptures made out of plants throughout the gardens. The gardens cover a large area and take a few hours to go round but there are a couple of cafes which sell draught beer and snacks. The sculptures were amazing so I include a few photos o some of them.
Montreal is a city which grows on you the longer you stay so I am glad we had 3 days to get around it. It does not have the beauty of Quebec bu has plenty of good places to visit.
Summer 2013 – Weissman Project Reflection In order to best sum up my experience defining entrepreneurship in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina this past summer, I have decided to organize my thoughts into five different blocks.
- Logistics Reflection
· Cultural Reflection
· Entrepreneurship Reflection
· Comparison to India
· Future Outcomes
I believe that these five subcategories best reflect ...
... and step on my foot simultaneously. It isn't an easy city to enter, by bike at least. I faced the backest of back alleys, the worst of roads, freeways, an airport, seedy neighborhoods, and one way traffic that tried its best to turn me right back around to Ottawa. But I persevered, and found myself at the center of town right on schedule. I left my phone charger in Ottawa two days ago, and thus my first stop, the Apple store. Not to buy a new charger, but to use theirs. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Auberge Bonaparte Montreal
I have never stayed in a place as wonderful and beautiful as this place.
Auberge Bonaparte is a spotless, very tastefully decorated inn in the heart of Old Montreal very convenient to the Metro, Notre Dame (a must see, even if you're Jewish like we are!) and the port. The desk staff is AMAZING. Very friendly and helpful, even printing out computer generated maps to eateries and attractions. I can't say enough about the desk and housekeeping staffs. Only two things prevent a 5-star rating.
A Pleasant Surprise
After reading other reviews and deciding to stay one night as we past through,I am pleased to say our expectations were exceded.The employees were pleasant,helpfull and courteous.We found the room to be spotless and very charming.The only surprise was the parking.I was told parking was not available at the Inn,and was directed to a private lot one block down the street.When booking the room I was lead to believe parking was available at the rear of the Inn.The parking lot attendant then proceeded to tell me that I would have to pay for 2 days parking if our vehicle was there past 6:45 A.M.When I explained to him breakfast was not served before 7:00 he was not concerned.The cost was $22.00 for 1 night,when the sign said 10.00 a day.Be Prepared.
The room was beautiful and totally comfortable - everything was just perfect. The "Bonaparte" breakfast was superb - croissants are to die for. To top it all of, what a great value during the labor day weekend - $196 CAD with tax and parking per night.
Exceptional Hotel for the Sophisticated Traveler
The Auberge Bonaparte was even better than I expected. The rooms were beautiful and complete with a large marble bathroom. I really appreciated the large gorgeous floral arrangements that greeted you at the front desk. The best part was the delicious breakfast served in the Restaurant. Freshly cut orchards were cleverly displayed on each table and illuminated by a single beam of light. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I strongly recommend this hotel to the sophisticated traveler who appreciates the finer things in life.
Great Hotel and Restaurant
We loved this hotel! Located on quaint street in Old City near shops, metro, Notre Dame...The rooms were spacious, clean, with nice views. Jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was delicious and included in the room price. Staff was fabulous in helping with information on restaurants, tours etc. The restaurant for dinner was amazing. A great get away from the big hotels.
Great room great breakfast great location
The room was huge with a spacious bathroom and whirlpool tub. The breakfast was fabulous. We will definatley stay here again!
Great Value + Wonderful Food
We visited in Aug - Sep 2002. The room was marvelous - spacious, well furnished, view of Basilica Notre Dame. Bathroom was @ five star level! The breakfast that goes with the room is varied, tasty and filling! But best of all is the very helpful, cooperative and customer-priented staff. Would go back in a heartbeat. Location is excellent for sightseeing.
Beautiful room in the heart of the old city. A full breakfast included and a helpful staff. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
Stayed at Bonaparte for 5 nights. Medium sized room but spacious, 3 windows, nice furniture, breakfast included. Hotel staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast is in the restaurant downstairs and is worth the room price alone! Great location in the heart of Vieux Montreal. Definately recommended.
