Exchange trip in Montreal for 2 days and 2 nights, it was organized by the exchange club, and this was unfortunately the first, and also the last trip we went with the exchange clubs. They organized two more but both failed.
When this trip happened we didn’t even know one another for a month yet. But it was an amazing trip, many things happened, good, bad, crazy, and romantic ;) I think lots of exchange romances started here. And Montreal is an incredibly gorgeous (and French-looking) city. I need to go back there again :(
On the bus to Montreal! Ferdi looks terrible here hahahaha.
We arrived Montreal at night so.. first night, we only partied. We had pre-drinks in the Australians’ room, apparently we actually got a noise complaint or something, but not sure if it was us or maybe Brazilians’ room, because we kinda had the whole floor to ourselves. But I don’t know.
I think we actually went to 2 clubs that night. I think the first one had $1 drinks for girls or something, so we went there to drink, and moved on to another club that offered all of us free entry. :D
With my favourite girls, all tipsy and hungry, in Subway.
Breakfast the next morning in Van Houtte. The boys were too slow so we went for breakfast ourselves.
Shit, I think this was the morning when we heard about Andrew and his seizure. He fell and injured his head, and we woke up to the ambulance bringing him to the hospital wtf. Poor Andrew missed a day in Montreal. But he was okay, thank goodness.
We missed the walking tour because they all left before we got back to the hotel. So we went on our own walking tour but following their path hahaha. And we actually managed to catch up with them (when the tour was going to end soon hahaha!). Although we didn’t really stop in any of their stops.
That’s Ogulcan walking in front of us. Poor guy had to wait for us slow girls hahaha. We bumped into him in Van Houtte, he was done eating but he waited for us too! ;) sweetest guy ever.
Some nice tree with lights that looked a lot better in real life than in pictures. I don’t know why I even bother uploading and posting this here. Now that it’s here, I’m just gonna leave this here.
Told you we managed to catch up with them! My proof is… Ferdi being a poser hahaha.
Gorgeous mall, I love it. I’m not sure if it’s even really a mall.
Loverboy talking on the phone with his girl. :D He tends to walk around while on the phone, like it’s his own house. He did this in the residence’s cafeteria too and we all took a picture and uploaded them haha.
Hahaha we took so many pictures here. This thingy makes sounds / music when the wind blows!
No idea what building this is. Not even sure this is part of the tour, we had free time to walk around / go shopping ourselves after the walking tour ended.
Montreal at night.
Some random building with these pictures projected on the building.
This night, we were separated into 2 different groups for 2 different parties hahaha, one for the club to see some DJ whose name I don’t remember, another one for some outdoor music festival I think. I preferred the first because… it was indoor and I wouldn’t have to freeze outdoor. Been there done that in New York when it wasn’t even that cold, don’t want to do it again in worse winter!
We had pre-drinks again, this time in some of the Brazilians’ room. Too many Brazilians, don’t even remember which one haha. We played some drinking game and I got so drunk that Ogulcan (who was also incredibly drunk) refused to let me go to the club hahaha. He felt guilty for making me drunk hahahahaha. Aww Ogulcan.
We were all supposed to go to the club, but Jo stayed drinking in the room with the Brazilians, and Ina and Sole went to a party of their friend’s instead, and Nico Santiago are not party people (except that I didn’t know at that point). So in the end it was just me and Ferdi going to the club wtf, with some other Brazilians and the CUEx people.
We paid like maybe $25 for the ticket because we bought them at the door wtf. It was so expensive but we were all already there. But that was a pretty great night anyway, music was good. I tried to enjoy as much as possible in the club considering I paid so much for it hahahaha. Too bad I sobered up when we got to the club wtf, the winter wind tends to sober me up.
And not even halfway through, Ferdi realized that he lost his coat check ticket wtf, and he was so worried that he could no longer enjoy it. He had to wait until everyone left the club to get his coat back, I stayed with him so that he wouldn’t have to be alone. Waiting alone sucks.
And when we were finally gonna leave, he talked to some guy who offered us a ride home, but ended up charging us money wtf, and bringing us to a gas station asking us to pay for his gas wtf. Okayyy…. They were speaking in French but even without translation I kinda got what was happening, so shady and creepy.
Now, the next morning, we heard about a Brazilian who was so pissed drunk that he pooped in front of someone else’s room HAHAHAHAHA. Crazy shit, pun unintended.
The last day, all we did was pack up and go to Biodome.
Group picture! This is part of the group that went to Biodome earlier because we already had breakfast haha.
I don’t even really remember what was in Biodome, except that they had different themes in different sections. This might’ve been rainforest or something like that hahaha.
With Jo then Ina posing with the elephant ears thing. Apparently you’re supposed to be able to hear something when you put your head in between, but we heard nothing wtf.
Penguins :D I like penguins. The only thing I bothered posting here because.. I like penguins heh.
The girls making their mark on the chalkboard. They wrote one for the Preston Team but I don’t know where’s the picture haha.
We had like maybe 4 hours just in Biodome it was ridiculous. When we were done walking around we just sat in the cafe waiting for time to go home wtf.
I really need to go visit Montreal again.
