Hey guys! My name is Christen Carter and I am a redshirt sophomore. Today we had a free day to explore Montreal! Genesis, Erin, Devyn, Casey, and I had a VERY eventful day..getting lost 😂. After breakfast at Muffins Plus we set out to find the Nike store. We were supposed to take the Metro to its very last stop and then catch a city bus to the Nike store. What ended up happening was we took the Metro to the last stop and then waited for the bus for about 15 minutes before asking a bus driver if the bus we were waiting on was working today. He then informed us that it only runs during rush hour (it was only like 11:30). He was extremely nice and asked to see the address of our destination and then offered to take us there for free since it was on his route anyway. It wasn't until we were at our "destination" that we figured out that the address in Maps was wrong. We went back on the bus and informed him that we went 9 miles in the opposite direction. He was nice enough to take us back and he gave us written directions to how to get to the new (and correct) address.
When we finally made it to the outlets we decided to grab some lunch. We ate an amazing lunch at a restaurant named Roasters. Our waiter came up to us speaking French and we said English please and then in his best attempt at an American accent he said "Okay awesome so how we doing guys" 😂. Almost all of us got a burger. Devyn had a delicious grilled chicken wrap.
After lunch we went shopping!! There were a lot of good deals in all of the stores. We then made our way to the city bus and rode it back to the metro stop and then road the metro to our hotel. It was a long day (for some more than others😂😂)
We all took a nap before dinner. Casey, Genesis and I were craving sushi so we stopped at a cool spot called Kuú and enjoyed some yummy sushi.
A few of my teammates enjoyed some food at a food truck festival here in Montreal for dinner.
Our coaching staff hiked Mount Royal this morning and saw a beautiful view of Montreal.
I finished off the night with some recovery for my legs to get ready for our second game tomorrow in Quebec City! Go Jags!
