Favorite thing: Montreal, a city to discover, a city to live in. It's difficult for me to see Montreal like a tourist because i've never been one in this city. I always lived near or in Montreal. With my digital camera, i'm trying to see my home with a totally new point of view...and i think it's working.

Montreal is really unique. It's a city where you need to walk to discover it, going from a neighborhood to another, meeting the people, doing some of the attractions (the classics like going to the top of the Olympic stadium, the Biodome, the Botanic garden), eating very well (the second most restaurants in North America after New-York), shopping in unique boutiques, etc.

But it's not like visiting big metropolis like Paris, New-York or Rome where it's impossible to see everything in a rush. Montreal is possible to see the main attractions in a week. But, and that's the soul of this city, you will miss the simple things that make this city so great.

So if you come to Montreal, you need to be curious and go out of the common areas. That's the best way to understand this city, my home.

Fondest memory: So much good memories but if i had to choose one it will have to be the magical meeting of my girlfriend in the Old Port in 1993. Pure magic !
