After a morning of travelling, we arrived in another french-speaking part of Canada, Montreal. The whole bus was very excited for one of the optional extras, which I think the entire bus signed up for - jet boating on the St. Lawrence River's famous rapids! What a trip! Probably our favourite extra so far. It involved driving a boat into massive whirlpools and waves and slamming it in different directions to get the entire boat soaked. So much fun, however the laughing meant that Simon swallowed half the river!!
After drying out and enjoying a well deserved hot chocolate we headed to the hotel, and had yet another quick turnaround before heading back into the city for dinner. After tea we were treated to a ghost tour around the Old Port area of the city, which was quite good, and helped alot by our hilarious guide. Our busy day meant the need for a big night's sleep!
The next day we got on a cycle tour around the city, which was a great way to get about, while getting some much needed exercise after all the big portions over here!! The weather was really nice and we enjoyed lunch, and a stroll in the sun. We had an included dinner our second night, which was really good. I think the cycling took it out of everyone, so it was off to bed again before an extra-early wake up call to hit our next destination on time - Toronto!!
