Travel Memories – Canal Lachine, Montreal

This is more a photography post than one about travelling. We went to take pictures at Canal Lachine in Montreal in December 2014 and we caught the perfect day for doing so!

It was a very enjoyable walk and I recommend going there when being in Montreal! Now I want snow even more, but it’s not snowing this year, apart from one short time. I guess Canada has more snow than Austria!

Travel Memories – Québec City

Almost exactly two years ago I went to Québec City. I was there once before that trip, but that time had been in summer. So Québec City in snow was a first for me!

I went with friends by car from Montreal and we stayed in a nice hostel named Auberge Maeva. Our trip lasted one weekend. I really liked seeing the city in snow and for people who like Christmas decorations, it’s a great place to go to! Québec looks even cuter in the time before Christmas.

Funny little restaurant building 🙂

I’m not that happy with the sky on my pictures, I hope I am better at taking photos now. Back then I had only bought a better (amateur DSLR) camera a few weeks before and was still figuring it out!

After visiting Québec we went to see the Montmorency falls, it looked amazing in snow!

After writing this post I feel two things: I’m missing Canada and I’m wishing for snow. Unfortunately, here in Austria, I might have to wait a bit longer! If you have the chance to go see Québec City in winter I suggest you give it a go, it’s really worth a visit!

Travel Memories – Botanical Garden, Montreal

This post is going to be about my trip to the botanical garden in Montreal (“Jardin Botanique”). I went there twice in October 2014, the day pictures are from my first, the night pictures from the second time. I think the botanical garden is very beautiful and I’d recommend everyone to go there when visiting the city. I found out online that “Gardens of Light” takes place in 2016, too: Link

If you are in or close to Montreal, you should check it out!

I would definitely go again if I visit Montreal once more. Judging from this link I haven’t seen all of it anyway!
