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.
