It is about 12pm. Just received a text from J to have breakfast at her place. I have no idea what time she sent me the text since I always off my phone when I sleep.
I will dropby Cafe Myriade later which is at the corner of the street to get us both coffee. This cafe is recommended by travel bloggers, one of the places to check out for coffee when in Montreal.
Okay babes, as for the black coffee, I prefer the one from Tim Horton. My preference might be a bit bias but I feel like this is a bit thicker and rougher compared to Tim Horton’s. The taste in general is fine but not to my taste. But don't stop yourself from trying when you are here. Maybe you will like it.
Just finished my breakfast at J's. She made for me scrambled eggs and bagel with cream cheese and cucumber. I need to leave her alone to do her school works. Now I am heading to somewhere which I have no idea. Actually, I do not have many plans to visit tourist attractions here. My intention to come to Montreal is only to spend my time with J. Maybe I will hop on the train and bus to somewhere just to kill time.
See... I lost my way! I ended up in some roads but not at all the places I intended to go to although I mentioned earlier to somewhere I have no idea. Anyway, I found this park, La Fontaine, while walking endlessly. Ended up sitting there from 4 to 7.30pm.
If you asked me why I can sit there for so long.. firstly, the weather is so comfortable. Cool and not too windy. Secondly, it is safe. Thirdly, I felt something. Nothing to do with paranormal, please. Stop it with your horror stories. I feel like I need to be alone to think and to understand every beats of my thoughts that could have been clouding my judgment. Sitting down at this bench with the full view of the lake, people hanging out and observing those beautiful swans seems a good idea. And also I have plenty of time.
My phone started to ping. Once. And an hour later, again. and again.
Walking at the lit up pathways from the La Fontaine Park to my apartment, Pierce Boutique Hotel, took me nearly two hours. It was a safe place to walk by myself apparently, and walking in the autumn night is satisfying.
