I initially moved to Ottawa to fulfill a one year work contract and never thought I’d stay longer than that. Adventures have always been welcome in my life, and I viewed my stay in Ottawa as one more adventure to scratch off the bucket list.
But Ottawa surprised me and it didn’t take long before I decided that I wanted to make this my permanent home.
The most amazing thing is that even after living here for a few years, I continue to be surprised. I am pleasantly surprised by the fantastic people that live here, the constant cultural displays, the marvelous small community feel, the amazing festivals, musical offerings, great libraries, funny comedians, talented musicians etc.
I want to share with you a recent discovery which is worth a blog post and makes me love Ottawa more, it is called: Awesome Ottawa.
