Ottawa – Canada

The capital of Canada and as I learned it got chosen strategically because it didn’t border with the USA and also marks the line between the English and French speaking part. I started in the French speaking part because I knew I would work there without speaking French and thus wanted to travel from east to west to find a job. Preferably I’d like to settle at the west coast, since I miss living by the sea. But if I enjoy some place on the way plans could always change 😉 As people told me in Ottawa most of the citizens are either in politics or administration, hospitality or student’s. I’m non of those so I decided to just spend 2,5 days there. Still, I really enjoyed my stay and wished to have a couple of days more. The hostel was really great (Ottawa Backpackers Inn) and each night we sat on the bench together and had nice talks. The people you are surrounded with can really shape how you like a place 🙂 But here you go with my impressions.

The Nepean Point where you have a great view for sunset.

View from Major’s Hill Park.
Northern Lights, the Sound and Light Show projected on the Parliament of Canada.
Took a ton of pictures from it. It went on for 30 minutes and summarizes the Canadian history and I really loved it.
Parliament Hill.
The Rideau Canal Locks from below…
… and from above. Takes 1,5 hours to get through theses 8 locks.
The Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica and some spider art from the National Gallery.

They suddenly walked by the Rideau Hall Grounds when I was relaxing in the shades drinking and iced earl grey XD
The queen is present everywhere in Canada, even on most of the coins and bank notes.
