"This is a view of Montreal, where we went for Christmas and New Year. The photograph was taken from one of the city's islands, which was home to a famous race track and casino. It was utterly beautiful, and well worth the journey through ice-rain!"
"The next picture was taken at a hockey match we went to - Canadians are obsessed with hockey! This was an Ottawa 67's game, who are in a slightly younger league than the NHL. We had a great time though. It was even better than the NHL game we saw. The whole crowd was really into it. The 67's won, which was good, and it was a great match."
