MosaïCanada: A Different Way to Tell Stories

MosaïCanada: A Different Way to Tell Stories

By far, one of my favourite aspects of Ottawa is that there is always something new and exciting to show visitors (or locals!). When my mom came to visit in July, we knew most of the trip would be dedicated to family time and Canada Day celebrations. Still, for her last day in Ottawa, we crossed the bridge into Gatineau, Quebec to see a limited time event – MosaïCanada.

A Farewell Love Letter To Ottawa

Five years ago, I took a somewhat risky chance in life – without having any sort of job lined up, I moved to a city I’d never even visited. That risk paid off tenfold as I fell head over heels in love with Ottawa and the life I built there.

Halifax Part Two: A Citadel and One Final Lighthouse

Halifax Part Two: A Citadel and One Final Lighthouse

Although we were done with Titanic-related places in Halifax, we weren’t quite through with historical sites. We made our way from the cemetery up to the Halifax Citadel, which displays life at the fort in 1869, a time when Canada had only been a country for two years. The pipers, the relics, and the drill demonstrations all added together to create a realistic and immersive atmosphere.
