So, a few months ago I made a short trip from Toronto to Ottawa and I flew there via none other than Porter Airlines. There were a few reasons I chose this airline: (1) The flight times were better than the Air Canada alternative, (2) They flew out of the city centre instead of Pearson which is not easily or conveniently accessible by any public transportation from Hamilton, and (3) I had recalled all of their advertising that emphasized the “Porter experience” and I wanted to see if it lived up to the hype. Did it ever.
Happy Halloween everyone! I am so happy that I did this tour because it gives me something to write about in honour of Halloween! I’m also glad I did it because it was really cool and fun and is something I would definitely recommend if you are in Ottawa.
Pescara. Is. Stunning.
That statement is about as clear as I can get. Pescara’s beaches are a slice of heaven; a step away from the bustle of the city. This was by far our favourite destination on the trip, largely due to the fact that this is where I was visiting family I had not seen in years and that it was nice break from the days of constant walking and go-go-go. We had 3 days of rest and relaxation that was much needed in order to charge our batteries for the days we had ahead of us in Rome.
So today I thought I would get a little personal in my blog post and share with you all why I travel. I know what some of you are thinking: “Obviously you travel to see new places.” Well that’s partly the reason but there are so many other things about travelling that entice me.
When I was in Ottawa, one of the things that was suggested to me was to take a cruise down the Ottawa River. At first, I was wondering if it was worth the time and money to just go down and back up the river, but I am so glad that I did.
