a tiny tour of Montreal

A few weeks back, I had the chance to go to Montreal with my best friend. So I did!

We explored old Montreal, new Montreal, Mount Royal, the architecture, the design, Quebec City, the funicular, the shopping scene, the tasty treats scene, the subway & even a bar or two.

It’s lovely there!

pretty pretty Panama … part 2

A little late, but worth the wait 🙂

Here are a few more images from our trip to Panama. We went pretty far east to the San Blas Islands, where we took in the beauty of our surroundings by relaxing in a hammock or two. Then we hopped on a boat & a plane heading west to Bocas Del Toro. We explored the water, the jungle, the Kuna culture & some tasty food!

See you soon Panama!

i heart: Graham Baba Architects

Inspired by the article in the New York Times – Seattle, A Tasting Menu – I decided to do my own take on the topic. Below is a sampling of well designed eating and drinking establishments by Graham Baba Architects. They’ve created some super cool spaces using salvaged materials and vintage finds. The result is rustic meets modern with an industrial edge. And the food’s pretty tasty too.
