Old Montreal walking tour.

Weather is perfect. I am in for a great day in Montreal. Weekday Montreal seems very busy. Corporate crowds march in multiple directions, as I walk in search of the old Montreal that is about to take me back 300-400 years in time.

I can only walk aimlessly in the old town, because every nook and corner seems too picturesque for me to follow a plan.

The Notre-dame church in Montreal seems more beautiful than the one in France.

Brilliantly crafted churches, beautiful squares, and casual statues in unexpected corners are the order of the day.

Mont3-5

While inner streets are too narrow for a car, there are broad enough streets to accommodate the needs of the luxury. I am thinking walking and biking should be made as a mandatory modes of transportation through time.

Mont3-8

It feels like most of the buildings in the plazas and squares have a cafe feature attached to them. What better way to cool off from the morning Sun than a chilled wine at a French cafe.

Mont3-4

I buy nothing when I travel. But for a shopper, Art, boutiques, farmers maple syrup, gourmet cheese and much more. Options are abound.

Mont3-6

As I go back in time and let my mind visualize the images I capture in my camera in B+W, I see limitless options, only if I can take the liberty to steal the hearts my readers with pictures than words.

Mont3-9

I cross the road into the islands to get a distant view of the old port and the early morning skyline before I find the best smelling restaurant to settle for a bowl of soup with bread.
