Touring the Parliament of Canada is one of the things a lot of tourists do when they come to Ottawa. As someone who lives here though you never really think about it much unless you’re on a school field trip. However, when it was announced a while back that Centre Block would be closing for at least 10 years for extensive renovations I knew that I really wanted to see it again since the last time I went on a tour was probably almost 10 years ago. One of the bonuses of waiting so long to go on a tour was that it was all decorated for Christmas making the building even prettier.
I’ve lived in Ottawa my whole life and I really love my hometown. As much as I love to travel I really couldn’t live anywhere else. Ottawa is the capital of Canada with so much to offer but it still feels like a small city. Maybe you’re new to Ottawa or coming to visit, or maybe you’ve lived here for a long time like me but haven’t really explored the many great neighbourhoods of Ottawa. I hope that I can share with you how great Ottawa is so you get out exploring and if you’ve never been I hope I can convince you to come check it out! So here are a few photos of Ottawa and stay tune for more to come!
