Photos: Butterflies go Free at the Jardin Botanique in Montreal

Last Sunday we headed to the greenhouses that are located inside the premises of the Jardin Botanique (Botanical garden) of Montreal.

Until April 21st, you can stroll through a giant aviary where thousands of butterflies are set free. The yearly event is called Butterflies Go Free. Here’s a glimpse of how beautiful it is:

Late fall in New York City

We just came back from an epic two week trip that took us to New York City, Long Island, New Orleans, the Cajun country, Memphis and Nashville. I’ll be posting photos right here over the next few days.

Photo tour: a walk through Notre-Dame des neiges cemetery in Montreal

Notre-Dame-des-neiges is the largest cemetery in all of Canada. Located in the middle of the city, it is easily accessible and is a great place for a long, contemplative walk, especially during the cold days of this fall season.

Photo post: A view of Athens

Athens view

Athens, circa 2009. We were only supposed to stay in Athens for a few hours but we hit a transit strike in Italy and missed our flight to Santorini so we decided to stay two days in the capital of Greece before we headed our next destination (Istanbul). As much of inconvenience as this transit strike was at first (more on that later), we ended up having lots of fun in Athens and I’m glad we got to visit this fascinating city.
