As the snow casts over this cold little city come Winter, I become dormant, not wanting to do anything that involves leaving the house post-work. My basal metabolic rate slows...and looking around as I sit in a mountain of down comforters and quilts, there lays evidence of my general laziness on crumble filled tableware squirreled around the bedside. "I don't want to go out, I want to sleep and watch movieees in bed" I lament, as my body collapses into fluffy linen goodness. Of course, how do you say no to a night of hibernation as the temperature plummets below -20 C on the Montreal streets outside? It takes a lot to make me layer up and trek fearlessly through waist-high snowbanks in freezing climates, but there are some places that make the adventure well worth it...here are some of my picks for 2013.
