I had a great time at Romancing The Capital earlier this month. (It’s on again for August 3-5, 2017, so mark your calendars.) This year I went two days early to give myself some time to explore my old stomping grounds. I lived in Ottawa for eight years, and WOW! Have things ever changed. Ottawa is getting a light train/subway. It’s also expanded a lot.
When I lived there as a kid, we had to go to the Parliament Buildings every time family came to visit. BOR-ING. Now, as an adult, I had to go. Sadly, they were sold out of tours but I did get to go up the Peace Tower.
I have to admit it’s much more interesting as an adult.
