Feeling Very Nostalgic Today

Today during the morning hours as I was listening to music from the past on my iTunes playlist which was Adiss Harmandian and International Vatche who are Armenians who sing a variety type of songs, I felt very nostalgic. It also brought back many emotions and happy thoughts as I was remembering highway 401 East and a cottage we used to have in Eastern, Ontario, Canada, a town named Tweed and the countless amounts of times we would drive to Montreal and a couple of times I drove on my own.

Now, you are probably wondering why the music is involved in this, is because they were the artists that we would listen to in the stereo in the car when we would drive down. It never missed. These singers would always be involved and included in our road trips to the Cottage, Montreal and abroad.

The Nostalgia was kicking in even more when I was scouring through the internet for images of the town, the cottage we used to own, highway 401 East, and it went as far as the service centres and things we would see on the way like The Big Apple on the south side of the 401 on exit 497, Percy St. Do not confuse it with The Big Apple in New York City.

I know you are also wondering why I am having nostalgia over a highway. Well, Highway 401 East from Toronto all the way to Quebec has a sentimental place in my life and in my heart and it will always be a special place to remind me of the great drives we have had, and I was crazy at one point in driving in the worst possible snow storm which took over 7 and a half hours to get to Montreal, where on a normal day, would take about 4 and a half hours. In Montreal, I have plenty of friends and I would go and hang out with them every 2-3 weeks. I went about 35 times in one year, and that does not even cover the rest of the years.

So, today all those thoughts and memories came back to my mind and it was a great feeling. It has been about 3 and a half years, I have not been back to Montreal. Just that life got a whole lot busier, a lot of work, and I have traveled quite a lot as well to so many destinations, that I have lost count and now, I am so occupied with my work in Social Media Marketing, and also being a professional in it.

The Nostalgic feeling will never go away, and I will always remember the good times. I am going to make a trip to Montreal and Tweed, Ontario once the winter goes away and spring comes. I definitely need to make a trip there. I just want to drive and I just want to see my beautiful people there and go back to where my Cottage used to be and relax by lake Stoco.

I have written Articles about Tweed, Ontario, the Highway 401 and more… To read, them simply search my blog on the top right side of my blog page above my Facebook Fan Page. Thank you.

Have you had a great nostalgic moment in your life?

Would love to hear from you.

All the best.

Summer Is Here! What Are Your Plans?

My Favourite time of the year is here and it is summertime. I have so many plans this summer to travel on a couple of weekends, go camping, going and enjoying with family and friends on barbecues, host my own barbecues, spend a lot of time outdoors, probably see family from out of town, hopefully. I just love summertime. Birds are chirping, the weather is warm, everywhere is green, flowers blooming, beautiful sunshine, people outside playing, more outdoorsy stuff. Its such a beautiful time of year. I remember so many times when I was a kid, we used to go to Amusement parks like Canada’s Wonderland, CNE, Ontario Place, Centreville, but then I grew out of that phase now. Now I don’t think I can sit on those rides and be in those places. I am glad I got to enjoy all that with family and friends. Now it is all about relaxation and having fun at the same time, but other forms of fun.

I remember in the summertime we used to go up to our cottage in Tweed, Ontario until we sold it over 10 years ago, but I guess each thing has its phase and has its time. Now I like to travel on weekends. This summer I won’t probably go back to Montreal, but I will be traveling in Ontario. I still haven’t made those plans yet, but I should within the next couple of weeks. There is only 2 and a half months of summer, so might as well enjoy it to the max and make plans. I love making plans, but sometimes it doesn’t follow through, but then again making plans is a great thing to do. It keeps me organized and it keeps me in line with life and everything I want to do. Sometimes plans to pan out, but at least plans were made.

So what are your plans for the summer? What are you doing with family and friends?

Have a safe and happy summer!
