Travel with a sense of humor

I hate bragging. I hate even talking about myself and I really, really mean that – I have no idea how anyone talks about their achievements without coming across as a complete a-holes. I can’t do it. When job interviewees ask about my biggest accomplishment I am likely to say, “training my dog to play dead when I shape my finger like a gun.” Or “walking two icy blocks in four-inch stilettos.”

Talking about yourself or “tootin’ your own horn,” as my grandma says was forbidden in my household. I feel a curse coming on the minute I mention anything remotely interesting about myself.

So I’ll be fast: I put a lot of effort into this thing. If you’re going to Montreal or Quebec, you’ll find it useful. I am grateful for the things I have everyday and cannot believe my incredible (hopefully incurable) good luck.

Merci!

  3. Just from having read this far in you blog, I know this will be my go-to book when we decide to visit your neck of the woods!

    • Sure, no problem. Unfortunately, even though I know the area very well, I had to move back to Seattle (visa/job issues). My goal is to be bi-coastal and bi-lingual.
      But I can definitely recommend good places in Quebec!
