Montreal, Quebec (Canada)

Back in May we spent a week traveling around Canada and Maine. We visited Montreal, Quebec City, and Acadia National Park, along with a lot of scenic routes in-between!  Every now and then I'll be sharing some pictures from our little adventures because there are so many beautiful things to see in this world! I shared some pictures of Quebec City in a previous post.

Our first stop on the trip was Montreal. My husband and I had been there once before back in 2006 and we loved it and have always wanted to go back. It is a city with something for every one! In my case, it has one of the most beautiful churches I've had the opportunity to visit. I love to take pictures of churches and Notre-Dame Basilica is a feast for the eyes!

Inside the Botanical Gardens is the Montreal Insectarium. Having grown up in Brazil, I've seen my fair share of strange bugs, but I was amazed at some of the bugs we saw there. The butterfly displays alone are worth the trip! One display in particular caught my eye: beetles. There were so many colors and varieties of beetles, they looked like jewels! 

And when in Canada you have to have some poutine! We stopped for some near the Old Port and it was absolutely delicious!
