via @InsideJourneys - Since some genius decided to build New York City in the middle of a swamp, summer in the city is often miserably hot and humid. In preparation for sweaty days to come, I’ll be sure to follow these simple tips for dealing with extreme heat - especially “wear a floppy hat.”
via @Travellersoul76 - On the other side of the meteorological coin, Montreal is one of the coldest places I’ve ever been. Granted, I went in early March after a winter full of record snowfalls, so experiencing the worst of the city was really my own fault.
