I'm French, living in Montreal since 2003.
I've been a tourist, a student, an immigrant, a researcher, a worker, and now I'm a canadian citizenship.
As I received a lot of people, friends and family the past years, I visited Montreal, the Quebec and the main close area of Ontario and the US a lot. I was doing for them, each time, an adapted 2-3 weeks tours depending on who they are, and what they like. Avoiding party bars to my parents, and avoiding history museum to my youngs cousins. I went pretty everywhere in Quebec, from the Gaspesie to the end of the road in North east, close to the Iles Minguan. I know most of the national parks as well.
