Montreal 2018: Parlez-vous francais? - Day 8: Going Home - or maybe not...


Yet again an early wake up. Here's hoping that bodes well for the jetlag once I get home!

I decided to just get a coffee this morning and eat breakfast at a diner bear the school for a change! I managed to get a slightly later check out of 1pm which would at least give me time to get back as the class finished at 12 today.

I left at about 7.30 am for the walk to the school.



I gad walked this route on the lady 5 days and only noticed these statues today ! They did blend in with the background...



I went to a diner that had only opened yesterday. I had a toasted veggie egg benedict with potato and onion rosti and coffee. It was very nice!

I headed over to the school. I wasn't the only one who hadn't done their homework! What I found frustrating was that she got us yo read out our texts from the day before yesterday and also those who had done the one from yesterday. This took almost 2 hours and was fairly dull!

My overall view was there was a lot of deadtime and the teacher spoke way too much. The other people there were very nice and I enjoyed it. I also managed to break a bad habit - yay me!



I made my way back to the hotel. In the RESO they had art exhibitions! This had appeared overnight!



Some were photos...



Some were more abstract. This one was a French guy who applied for jobs - but in such a way that was funny and really took the job advert literally.

I wasn't impressed the the exhibit of 2 tyres - even I could have done that!



I got back to the hotel, finished sorting out my luggage and decided that I would put my big coat on as it was freezing out and snow was threatened.

I returned to the fish and chip restaurant - living in France we don't get good fish and chips so often. This time I had cod in a beer batter. Again it defeated me!

I walked back to the hotel, stopping off in Indigo - a book shop. I got a book on New England ready for the summer!



On the walk from the book shop to the hotel it started to snow - not the best timing!

I got my suitcase and timed my run to the bus stop. The bus arrived after about 5 minutes.

As it was Friday afternoon the traffic was pretty busy but we arrived at the airport about 45 minutes later.



I took a photo of my suitcase in case of ...

The flight seemed full so I couldn't change my seat. Oh well. At least being in the middle of two aisle seats I shouldn't get disturbed if I want to sleep!



They deal with snow a little better here!

Brussels Airport gas been closed today due to snow do here's hoping it us open in the morning. All seems OK at the minute!



After going through security, I grabbed some supplies from Tim Hortons (after a long queue!)

I made my way to the gate (about as far as you could get!)

Now it us the waiting game...

UPDATE: Due to a cargo issue left late and because of winds over the Atlantic flight took 35 minutes longer than expected. So missed my connection (on final call as we landed).

Due to snow issues yesterday, no available flights until tomorrow! In a nice room in the Sheraton and about to go to Brussels for a waffle and wander!

You really dont sound as if youve been impressed with the schooling part of your trip which is a shame. But your walks around the city and the sights youve shown have been really interesting as always. Thanks for sharing Mel and I look forward to tagging along on your New England trip. 👍🏻

Im not surprised you didnt notice those white statues - I had to look carefully at your photo to see them.

What a waste of a last day in school - I cant see that you would have learnt anything! Im intrigued though what the bad habit was that you broke.

Your fish and chips looks lovely. Might as well take advantage of them while you can.

An unexpected stopover in Brussels then! Enjoy your time there and have a safe trip home Mel.

Food looks great for your last meals. Blink and you would miss the snow sculptures. Enjoy your unexpected stopover, the waffles at least sound good! I hope you get back safely.

Thanks Jo! I would have preferred to be home but Air Canada have been very good so I can't complain!

The bad habit was a phrase I use a lot but always with the wrong proposition!

It does sound like a bit of dull end to the course. Oh no, a shame you missed your flight and are stuck in Brussels. I hope you found some tasty waffles and get home soon.
