I love having a change of scenery, whether it’s 20 minutes outside of town or halfway across the world. Last Thursday, Joe and I made the three hour trek to Ottawa to take in some amazing sights, including the Canadian War Museum, the Museum of Civilization, and the Canada Space and Aviation Museum (do you notice a theme with things we enjoy?). Our favourite part? Aside from getting to catch up with some friends and family, hands down the amazing biplane ride over the river was the most thrilling experience. Joe has always been a HUGE plane enthusiast, so naturally this was a fantastic birthday surprise! I tried to capture just a portion of awesomeness of this city, but feel like I came up short. If you ever have the chance to visit our nation’s capital, I highly recommend it! It’s got something for everyone – museums, shopping, amazing food, fun tours, great nightlife, and lovely people. This begs the question – what are some of YOUR favourite roadtrip or trip memories? What made it so special?
