Number 26: See a Cirque du Soleil show this summer and Number 6: Vacation in another country

While in Vermont this summer, some friends and I decided to take a quick trip up to Montreal.  
We explored the city for the day at a park on the top of Mount Royal.  The view from the hill was impressive. 
 We ate sushi at a cute little sushi place that had sushi happy hour.  Then we walked around to some of the street fairs that they had in the city.  There were several that day and many streets were blocked off.  We spent quite a bit of time at a festival where they poured big piles of dirt in the street and had bmx bikers and skate boarders and such.
 We made our way down to the river front to complete our stroll and head toward the Cirque du Soliel tent.
 The show was called Curios.  It was a new show that just came out.  The cirque headquarters are located in Montreal.  All new shows premier there.
 It was a steampunk based story about weird and curious things.  
 We had tons of fun!  I always feel a little better about the world after I see a Cirque show.
 Then we walk around the cobble stone street down in the Old Montreal section of town and had a bite to eat.  It was crazy crowded, but still alot of fun.  I especially loved hanging out with friends.
We only spent a day in Montreal, so it wasnt a full vacation, but I've got a vacation already booked for spring break to Mexico.  Between the two trips, I think I can cross off Number 6.
