In today’s social media world, experience is capital. Travel and adventures are a status symbol. Fortunately, those of us without trust funds or millions of Instagram followers don’t have to be priced out of the market .Last week I hit the road with Greyhound to visit Montreal, Quebec. Turns out, a new country and a new culture, is only a bus ride away.
We took an overnight bus (it’s a seven hour ride) on the way there. The bus was new with nice, comfortable leather seats. There are a few stops on the route but for the most part it’s easy to sleep along the way. I recommend getting there early to snag window seats.
On the way back Greyhound’s 3-prong outlets and wifi saved me. Instead of losing a day to travel I was able to work the whole way home. The wifi was surprisingly strong and consistent, I even uploaded some files to Trends and Tolstoy and ran a few programs at once.
The Montreal bus station is cleaner than most airports I’ve seen, and it’s very central to downtown making it easier to jump right from your ride to that bowl of poutine. Greyhound also just introduced e-tickets in the Northeast that you can store on your phone for even easier travel. Don’t worry, they’re working on rolling them out in the rest of the country too!
Why spend your fall mooning over your favorite travel blogger’s photos? Book a Greyhound and practice your French, you’re halfway out of the country.
