Ottawa is just 2 hours away from Montreal, looks like a perfect place for 1-day trip. For my first trip there I decided to focus on essentials and most popular spots – Canadian Parliament building, city center, and the Rideau Canal.
The strongest feeling for me in Canada is a feeling of discovery. A totally new land where I have never been before. I feel a strong wanderlust, which many travelers define as “strong and irresistible desire to travel and discover the world”. So I talked to my friends, and we agreed what we will discover next. The capital of Quebec, the Quebec City.
Now I live in Montreal so I pretty much have an idea of what the life is like here. But in my opinion, seeing life in a big city is not enough to understand the country, people’s lives. I think that true understanding comes from seeing small towns, farms, gas stations, countryside.. Seeing a country from the road.
