  • Ladies and gentlemen! 

    On my twenty-fifth and last day of my trip through Atlantic Canada, I finally arrived in Montreal aboard The Ocean in the late hours of the morning. I spent the day in Montreal and took a train to Ottawa in the early hours of the evening. I took a taxi to get back to Gatineau where I had only spent two days of my entire summer holiday.

    Highlights: I managed to discover two places I had never visited in Montreal even though I have been to this city on numerous occasions. I visited Observatoire Place Ville Marie right next to the train station and drove all the way to the Olympic Stadium to visit its lookout as well. Even though the latter was older and smaller, I offered a better and clearer view and had its own unique atmosphere.

    Curiosities: I wanted to grab a snack for dinner at the Central Train Station but almost all restaurants had already closed in the early hours of the evening. A particularly helpful person decided to prepare something to eat for me even though he was already in the process of closing the restaurant. Thanks to his help, I managed to have a tasty Lebanese meal as final dinner on my epic voyage.

    Conclusion: This twenty-five day trip through Atlantic Canada was probably the greatest voyage I have ever experienced so far in my life. Every day was perfectly enjoyable and memorable. I'm already actively planning my next summer vacation as I want to visit Central Canada in June and July 2019.
