|We have come to the capital of Canada which is in the Province of Ontario and after being a little disappointed with Montreal we were hoping that Ottawa would make up for it. Great news – it did. Maybe its because it’s the nations capital that they are not afraid to spend the tax dollars making the place nice but whatever the reason the city is very impressive. Lots of well maintained parks, cycle paths and walkways all around the city, magnificent buildings, a beautiful canal which becomes the worlds largest skating rink in the winter, great museums all without the traffic chaos encountered in Montreal!
We spent 10 days in and around the city and the surrounding area, cycled along some of the many paths, wandered through the buildings on parliament hill, walked some of the many parks and gardens, visited the royal mint and a couple of museums and mooched around the markets and shops. In our opinion this would be a real attractive city in which to live, its just such a nice place with a real good feel about it.
