Are you the kind of person whose friends always say you live in a bubble? Well now is your time to actually, physically live in a bubble and drive them wild with jealousy.
There are a lot of bubble tents available for rent in Quebec and on Airbnb. But this is no mere tent.
This is BubbleLand! This is Bubble utopia. There is a bubble for sleeping with a clear roof so you can stare up at the summer sky before dozing off, there is a bubble raft where you can float down the river, and there is a bubble spa to soak the night away in.
The main bubble comes equipped with a single bed, pillows, and blankets and can fit up to three people cozily. It's kept inflated by a motor that the owner likens to the hum of a plane - the perfect white noise background. At night you can even choose the color of your bubble depending on your mood!
The bathroom, complete with shower and sink, is shared with the family who owns the land. But according to Airbnb, 100% of recent guests gave Bubbleland a 5-star rating so it doesn't seem like it's a big deal.
It's recommended kids stay home as it's right on the river and there is no protective fence. But that sounds like the perfect excuse to escape with just you and your partner! I think we're going to have to book this right away.

While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
