By this beautiful afternoon of February I sit in a VIARail train headed towards Montréal, at the Ottawa train station. (photo from behind the car window)

Going through the snow south-eastern Ontario Country and south-western, I finally reach my final destination, Montréal Pierre-E-Trudeau airport, aka YUL, aka Dorval Airport. The name is funny as Trudeau initiated the creation of an international airport in Mirabel, aimed at replacing Dorval, far north of Montréal, but funnily the Dorval Airport was renamed after Trudeau's name in 2004. I end up waiting in the new internatonal terminal, waiting to board onto AF 347 flight headed to CDG, France.

Things I learned: free electricity for your laptop in the terminal lounge, but expensive wifi service. Neither the seats nor the video system of Air France A340 aircrafts in Tempo (economy) class are suited for tall people like me.

I'm now in Paris for 2 days.
