The Next Getaway

Sault Ste. Marie was a great time with perfect weather, a nice cottage to stay at and an enjoyable train ride and hikes.

I've been very stressed out at work lately and struggling to keep things together. I think I'm through the worst of it now, and looking forward to some quieter weeks in October.

Today I booked a two-day getaway in Montreal. I'll take the train out on Monday morning, then stay overnight, returning the following afternoon (again on the train). It's not a long trip, but a good chance to disconnect from work and chill for a bit. The train ride is enjoyable and Montreal is an easy city to get around.

My plan is to eat some good food, get some bagels, watch the Canadiens' game at a local spot and generally relax.
