Travelling from Montreal, I love the city but I don't like the typical touristic circuits. I like to feel the vibe of the places I visit by doing some people watching and hanging out in everyday spots, cafes, restaurants, squares, etc.
This will be my first time renting an apartment for a trip. I hope this will be an easy process and pleasant experience. I plan on doing the same thing in the fall when visiting Barcelona. 2012 will be a great year!
