Céline fans.....go ROCK Montréal!!!!!

It`s been awhile since I`ve posted on here, but I feel it`s about time. These days my thoughts are with my friendswho will be going to, or already are, in Montreal, in Céline`s home province Quebec. I was lucky to visit Montreal back in July 2013, and this city is special. As a huge fan it feels truly special being able to visit the place where your idol was born and raised. To visit everything Céline related, her childhood home in Charlemagne (sad it has been demolished), but they replaced it with a beautiful house holding the Fondation Maman Dion. The Montreal Notre-Dame Basilica where she got married, where RC was baptized and where Rene`s funeral was. Nickels....a restaurant Céline and René owned that had this awesome 5-layers chocoloate cake mmmm, Schwarts`s....you HAVE to go there and try the smoked meat, it is delicious. Madame Tussaud`s, yes...both Céline and René are there :-) I was also lucky to go see her house at Ile Gagnon (thank you Lucie), I think I sat at the gate for like a couple of hours, but no Céline :-( We had hired a car while in Quebec, so we also went to visit the Le Mirage Golf Club at Terrebonne. You can say I did kind of a pilegrimage while there, a trip I would do anything to do all over again. The best thing about it all is that I got to meet Céline in person at the hotel Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City, a meeting I have been longing and waiting for for over 20 years. A meeting I kind of had given up on as it felt impossible for a fan from Norway.....but it happened. Previous trips to see Céline I had such high hopes on getting to meet her, but each time I ended up getting dissapointed because it didn`t happen. Going on my trip to Quebec I decided just to enjoy, have fun, not expect anything and just take everything that would happen as a bonus :-) And boy was Montreal the lucky place for me. I really hope that I will be back one day, hopefully with many of my fan friends.

These days a lot of my friends are heading to Montreal for a series of Céline shows. Seeing the one after another arriving there makes my heart pop. I know you will have the time of your lives. Some will be there for the first time, and some have been there before, but I know you will all have a blast no matter what. I really really wish I could be there with you, but having family priorities doesn`t always make it work. I still want you to know that my heart and mind is with each and every one of you while you`re there. I will read/see your post with a heart-warmth, I`ll get to experence all over again the feeling I had while I was there 3 years ago. I hope, from the bottom of my heart, that many of you will have your dreams come true while there. Don`t you ever loose hope that one day you will have her up close, maybe give her a hug, to thank her for being who she is, having a cèlfie and or an autograph, cause it is possible....you just have to be at the right place at the right time.

Even though I would love to be there with you all, but I`ve had my time....now it`s your time :-) I`m wishing you a blast and experience beyond everything.

Go ROCK Montréal Céline fans!!!!!

I love you all <3
