    Friend is caught between two location options for a 6 month study placement - Montreal or Barcelona. He's a big an of art culture and beaches.. sounds like Montreal is already out of the running... but Montreal has better supervisors.

    Any opinions/experiences would be much appreciated.

    On a purely personal basis I'd go for Montréal (because I'm moving to Spain anyway in January and now having lived in France, I'd love to live in French Canada).

    But why should he?

    Because it's further away from Europe and because Canada's so different to here it's inexplicable in a sentence.

    Why shouldn't he?

    Because he likes beaches and presumably hot weather, neither of which are found in Montréal. Also he likes art. The modern art scene is unbeatable in Barcelona.
