Ottawa in Photos

01

It had been nearly ten years since I spent any significant time in Ottawa and from what I could remember it was all government buildings and suits. This seems to be a common stigma that Ottawa gets, but I can now see that it is absolutely not true.

After a weekend in the city I pulled away on the train, full of excitement, thinking that I would be happy to return.

I liked the pathways along the canal, the bustling markets, the museums, the river, the parks and the fact that there was a place to go bungee jumping right outside of the city.

I truly liked everything about this city.

Here are some of my favourite photos from a weekend in the city:

    Lovely images! Where did you take the photo with all of the padlocks?

    I have just moved to Ottawa. Thank you for inspiring me to get out and see my new city.

      The padlock bridge is here. I’m sure it will be a great place to live, there’s so much to see and do :]
