A Walk Through Plateau Mont Royal

A Walk Through Plateau Mont Royal

Plateau Mont-Royal is an area in the city of Montreal. The Plateau as it is known among Montrealers, was a working-class neighbourhood back in the early 1900s. It is well-known for its brightly coloured houses with spiralling exterior staircases. There are loads of laid-back caf├ęs, cute little book shops, and trendy eateries. It is supposedly one of the coolest neighbourhoods in North America, which was all the more reason for me to go and have a little walkabout.

I took the metro and got off at Mont Royal. And then I just walked and walked and walked, randomly meandering around the neighbourhood. And this is what I saw:

Like I said, it's dotted with cool places to eat and drink and these are the ones that I stopped at:

Orienthe is a Middle Eastern style tea house with a super long list of teas from, you guessed it, the Orient.

La Petite Cuillere is a cute little coffee shop with great coffee and pastries. Its address is 3603 ST-Denis street.

I had dinner at La Fabrique. A relaxed and laid-back atmosphere and good food. which is prepared right under your nose.

London Eats World: Albania


I’m trying to eat my way around the world without leaving London and this week I went to have Albanian food in Maida Vale at Alba Grill. Alba is London’s one and only restaurant that sells Albanian fare.

Bloc Hotel at Gatwick Review

Bloc Hotel at Gatwick Review

I don’t like getting up early, so when I had to catch a 6 am flight last week I decided to check into the Bloc Hotel at Gatwick Airport. Nothing special to write a blog post about an airport hotel, but this one deserves a mention.

An Afternoon in Athens

I'm in Athens for TBEX 2014 and since there were no sessions scheduled for today, I decided to wander around Greece's capital without any type of guidebook or Lonely Planet. Just me and my spontaneity. And my Google maps app.
