[Montreal] Arrival, and the Night of Montreal Downtown

Waterloo, ON
Sky was still dark.

Waking up in the morning wasn't that bad, except for some very severe headache due to my insanity of not sleeping until 4:00.

Our plan was to meet at my friends' house at 9:00 and leave Waterloo right away.

I checked everything I had in my bag and made sure most appliances were switched off (for security reasons. Okay more for bill reasons). Locked the door, I stepped out of the apartment.

To be honest, I have no idea why I wrote this section, so lets jump right into the "after-arrival" part =P

[Montreal] Before Trip

Beautiful port city, freezing climate in winter, convenient public transit and underground network. These were some of my first impressions towards Montreal, the city located in southern Quebec province.

Life is not as hard as it seems; with a harsh term slipping through again, time flew away and holiday season came. Our proposed travel to one of the most beautiful cities in the world had been planned, and the time is ahead. To unleash all the pressure accumulated over the past four months, we decided to get ourselves away from Waterloo and drive to Montreal.

[Keihanshin] Before Trip

Kyoto (京都), Osaka (大阪), and Kobe (神戸). These three areas form a famous metropolitan region, Keihanshin (京阪神). This region is known to be full of historical and beautiful buildings mainly because that Kyoto was one of the most frequently used cities for capitals in Japanese history.
