Before I moved to Vancouver, I was living in Ottawa where I had moved to be closer to a woman who would eventually, one day, become my ex-wife.
When Crystal and I first started seeing each other, she was living and working in Ottawa and I was finishing up school at Laurentian University in Sudbury. On weekends, she would come back to Sudbury. Once a month, I would drive to Ottawa and on long weekends, she and I would go to Montreal to hit the amazing clubs!
Now that I am back in Sudbury, I am once again close enough to consider partying in Montréal (680 kms vs 3,890 km).
If you’ve never been to Montreal, it would definitely be a worthwhile trip if you want to experience that old French heritage feeling. I love Montreal! I highly recommend it.
