The Truth About Me!

Hi

Opinionated, Infuriating, Humorous
but always Honest – I promise!

Musings and Mutterings of a Montreal Madame Montreal restaurants

I’m a 68 (fast approach 69) year old Grannie living in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I love to travel – and I love to go to the Theatre – and I love to eat out. I do it cheap – I do it expensive – So what could be more natural than a blog?

My plans for 2017/2018 – besides enjoying the glorious city I call home – Montreal – include trips to London, Oxford, York, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Maine, Orlando (Disney to the max), a safari in Zambia, White Water Rafting on the Zambeze River, South Africa (mostly CapeTown and the Garden Route), St. Croix – not to mention Utah for skiing.

My girl-friend and I (she’s just turned 74) just returned from an adventure holiday in England and Scotland. I’m not sure where are next trip will take us – but Columbia, South America is definitely in the running.

No tours, no guides, no knowledge of languages other than English and French – just us and a very limited budget of $50 per day, per person.

Read all about it in my blog posts!

And while not traveling – I’m back to my normal plan – report on the restaurants I’ve visited, the theatre events I’ve attended, the fun free stuff I’ve discovered in Montreal, and the places I’ve been.

My goal – become famous.

My BHAG*? – get 500 followers by January 1, 2020

How can you help? Well – following my blog is a wonderful way to start. I promise to not being boring – and you can promise to make comments. It’s a deal.

Have a totally wonderful day – and remember the turtle – You can’t get ahead if you don’t stick your neck out.

    • Tripadvisor take note – I’ve got over 200 reviews on Tripadvisor – and they never once asked to link back to my blog. But Urban Spoon makes it easy. Go Urban Spoon I say!

    • Fun in Montreal in I hope the spring of 2014 – soon as we know for sure – we’ll send out save the dates

  2. Hi Leslie, Happy Holidays! I enjoy reading about your free spirit. You sound a little bit like me. I am heading to Mountainside Resort in Stowe this January and saw that you left a review to email you. I was wondering if you knew which 2BR buildings were renovated or had a nice view? I’m mostly looking for clean and comfortable.

    • Tricky question to be honest. I personally own two units at Mountainside, and I’m on the board. So my opinion would be biased. This said, each unit is personally owned, and individually decorated. The housekeeping team is great – and units in the rental program, when you check in thru the front office, are cleaned properly. I’m sure you will have an amazing time in my home away from home – Stiwe, Vermont! Leslie
