A Warm Winter in Montreal

If there’s one thing Canada is known for, it’s our winter weather. But this year, right up until New Year’s Eve, our days felt more like mid-March than the pre-Christmas winter wonderland we are used to. But even though the +12 degree (Celsius) temperature was warm for us Canadians, it was still chilly for my Indonesian cousins who visited for the holidays. During their two-week stay they only saw snowfall twice – definitely not an accurate representation of Canadian winters.

During their stay we took advantage of the warmth and spent a few days exploring Montreal, a city in Quebec, the French province of Canada. The juxtaposition of old basilicas against towering skyscrapers is a unique blend of North American hustle and classic European influence, making Quebec a must-see for any first-time visitor to Canada. Here’s a look at our short but sweet time in Montreal just before Christmas.
