Fuck Paris, whenever I want to have great food and drinks, I can book a 5 hour beautiful train trip to Montréal. I did that on January’s last weekend – not coincidentally, my wedding/dating anniversary – and I am still in love with the city. I have been there before, just by the beginning of 2010′s Fall, and this year I had a more winter-ish experience. Boy, it REALLY snows there, but it’s so beautiful.
The only problem is combining lots of snow and good food – this makes you fat. But if you get over your weight paranoia, travelling to MTL during winter is lovely – just don’t forget GOOD SNOW BOOTS, otherwise walking will be a challenge. This was an atypical winter and wasn’t cold at all, so I could walk a lot and see things. And eat. Oh yes eat. Always.
I absolutely love it there, if you’ve never been, you have to.
