Contrary Travel Link Up: Montreal's Mount Royal

One of my favouirte things to do when I'm traveling to a large bustling metropolis is immediately escape to reconnect to nature right in the middle of it all. Visiting parks, farms, conservation areas that around it are the tall skyscrapers and busy lives of business people, but you wouldn't know it with your surroundings.

I blogged about some of these kinds of visits while living in London with trips to Mudchute City Farm, Spitalfields City Farm, Richmond Park and Kew Gardens.

This time the "city escape within the city" was during my trip to Montreal when we walked up Mount Royal and followed the extensive nature trails down back to the very busy streets of Rue St. Dennis.

Sometimes it's nice to forget where you are and just listen to the birds singing and the wind rustling in the leaves above before returning to the car horns and miscellaneous street smells.
