I Heart Monteal
I recently was sent to Montreal, Quebec on a press trip for Curve and let me tell you, Montreal kicks major ass. The Montrealers are so down to earth and charming with their cool social climate and charming accents--it was hard for me to leave. Thanks to the Tourism Bureau of Montreal, I had a fantastic time. Some of the great things I did while I was there include: shopping and eating in Old Montreal (I'm sure I lived there in a former life since I was so at home), the Botanic Gardens, Atwater Market, Notre Dame (breathtaking), Museum of Fine Arts, Saint Viateur bagels (hold hell -- delish!), Montreal Science Museum (where I saw Body Worlds 2), shopping on St. Catherine street, Casino (lost money but saw a great show!), Cirque du Soleil's Kooza (my favorite Cirque show second only to O).
Beyond the press trip, I also stayed a few extra days for the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association conference where I had a hoot and met so many great queers (and some straight allies) from all over the world!
