Bota Bota – the Most Fabulous Spa in Montreal

If you have ever heard me or Dan talk about Montreal, chances are that you have heard us talk about Bota Bota!  It is our favorite place in all of Montreal, and probably Canada!

Bota Bota, formally Bota Bota, spa sur l’eau, is a spa in a renovated tug boat on the St. Lawrence River in Old Montreal, at the intersection of McGill and the St. Lawrence River.  Bota Bota offers all of the standard spa treatments, from nails to massages to facials, but the best thing about this spa is the Scandinavian water circuit!  This is what we always do, and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting.

Yes, We Went to Stockholm in January and Loved It!

Finally, a post about my favorite continent, Europe!

Dan and I wanted to get away for a long weekend in January.  Somewhere new, somewhere not too expensive (this one didn’t exactly pan out) and somewhere that we felt we could experience over a long weekend.  I did some online research and, surprise, Stockholm, Sweden came out as our destination!  Crazy you probably think!  Actually, Stockholm made for a great long weekend and I plan to do something similar next year!

Here are some pictures of the old town, Gamla Stan!  So cute, and very Old Europe!
