Old stone structures, French street names, and lots and lots of authentic poutine - this is what I had been primed about Montreal so far in Canada. But it was not until last month that I had the pleasure of visiting Montreal for a work trip. I had always heard about the city's French-Canadian culture… Continue reading Travelogue: quaint lanes of Old Montreal
A few months ago I decided to read more on my Kindle app, as I have been updating on this space on and off.

Ever since I started university in North America, I wanted to work alongside studying.
