Beginning of the East Coast Adventure - Montréal!

After departing Whistler, Natalie, Emma and I made our way to the East Coast! To save a bit of money, we flew out of Seattle rather than Vancouver to Montréal so we got to spend one night in Seattle again which was nice. We left bright and early the next day to fly to Montréal, travelling via Chicago. We had 5 days to explore Montréal which was definitely not enough, it is such an amazing city! I didn't realise the full extent of how many people in Québec speak French, sometimes it was a struggle getting around and asking for help in English. Lucky Emma knows a bit of French which was very handy. We were staying right in the heart of Old Montréal, imagine cobble stoned streets, cute French cafés and lots of beautiful old buildings, it truly felt like we were in Europe. I could totally live here except for the cold weather, it is absolutely freezing! It got to -28 degrees one night! We had the most amazing New Years Eve here, we went down to the St Lawrence River along with thousands of other revellers in minus 20 degree temperatures to watch the fireworks. There was a free concert down there too so we ended up staying down there for a few hours in the cold, luckily we had enough drinks to keep us a bit warm haha! Below are some pics from the Montréal leg of our trip:







Next stop, Québec City!! xx
