Located in the burgeoning recently gentrified area known as Griffintown Montreal is the Alt Hotel. A Le Germain Hôtels property with 12 locations across Canada, this budget-friendly funky fresh hotel was a comfortable place to stay for a weekend getaway in the city with a friend.
I recently had an opportunity to travel Via Rail Business Class from Toronto to Montreal and thoroughly enjoyed the experience en route to Montreal but not en route to Toronto. Due to these two very different experiences, I can certainly see the charm in travelling by train, but I can also see the pitfalls.
It’s a cool Friday afternoon, and I’ve found myself standing on a wooden platform high up in a tree in Brampton, Ontario. I’m clipped onto a series of thick wires strung between the two trees. Nervously checking my harness for the second time and fumbling with my GoPro, I step off the platform and rush through the air on my first zip line.
