Wow, as a big proponent of traveling, I haven't posted about it in a long time.So, anyone here been to Croatia or Romania? Any suggestions on things to see? I'm headed to Europe on Monday and those are two places I'm going.
England is nice, but I found Stonehenge a little underwhelming.I haven't ever taken a vacation of any sort, but I might be going to England this Summer or early Fall. If not this year, definitely next year.
Alternative plan is, if my friend can make it back to North America, we'll roadtrip to Yellowstone and back.
Where to stay, Air BnB is probably your best bet.Does anybody even go into this ?
Heading to Montreal for a week around the august long weekend
First up - where to stay?
Stupid expensive for hotels. So looking at air bnb type stuff. Is McGill a decent location? (I assume most of the air bnbs are normally student places outside of the summer.
Next up - where to eat?
What else to do?
Thanks. I will look into these places and check out the guides.My two favorite spots in Montreal are Joe Beef and Tuck Shop. If you want to go to Joe Beef, reserve now. You need to reserve waaaaaay ahead of time. Tuck Shop, you can reserve 10 or so days ahead of time.
Steak: Moishes is the best place, although it's expensive. Tuck Shop has very underrated steak.
Seafood: Milos or Le Bremner.

Da Emma is great food. But the ambiance is totally different. Moretti's is happening, like if you want to go to see the best of what this city has, you go there. I am heading down there next saturday as my bro is in town from florida.Never been there, but it's next to my favorite Italian place in Montreal, Da Emma.
I want to head to FL end of DEC but I think it's going to be a zoo in south florida, but my son is in K now so we have to follow a school schedule. How crazy is cheesecake factory around Xmas?The new ride at Universal, Hagrid's Magical Creatures, had a 10 hour wait for a 6 minute ride. That has now gone down to 3 hrs on average and they aren't accepting express pass. I was going to stop there on my way back down from PA but when we saw that I said eff it.
