We got up early on Wednesday morning and hit the road. My mom prepared some snacks, so we didn't stop for food.
|This is what a vegan sandwich looks like :)|
|Super easy read and very inspiring too!|
The following day, I got my morning fix and headed to the Art Gallery.
|Soy mocha frappuccino.So.Good.|
|very cool inside the gallery|
I couldn't take pictures of the art, but I did see some amazing paintings. Lawren Harris is a favorite of mine so I was totally over the top excited when I saw his art. So much depth and talent. I think I could have spent another week inside the gallery...
|I had the Asian salad.|
|Mom had a curry.|
Lunch at Peace Garden before going to the Aviation and Space Museum.
I really wanted to visit this museum and was glad I did. There are lots of cool airplanes and flight simulators that are awesome!
The Canadian Museum of Civilization was another amazing experience. I visited it twice and watched the cutest movie at their Imax theatre.
By the time we finished seeing everything, it was dinner time and we went to a Thai restaurant right across the street from the museum.
The bridge between Ottawa and Gatineau (where the Museum of Civilization is located) is pretty amazing and has a huge deck. It's windy, so when you cross make sure to take off your hat!

The ByWard Market is another great Ottawa attraction. There are tons of places to eat (okay not so many if you're vegetarian or vegan...) but you can just sit outside the Hard Rock Cafe and have a drink and watch people go by.
|Parliament of Canada|
|How cute is that?|
Now to the exciting stuff...
We were on our way back to the hotel when we realized we were almost in the middle of a political protest. Our Prime Minister was at the Convention Centre that is right beside where we were staying, so there was a huge commotion.
When we got back to our room, we spotted a couple of snipers on the building across from us. Exciting!
Later on we decided to go on a ghost walk. Some of the stories were cool, but I still think Burlington has more ghosts :)
