Glasgow, Scotland: My Favourite Photos

In March 2018, I spent a week visiting Glasgow, Scotland. This was my first visit to Scotland. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. What surprised me the most was how similar the architecture in Glasgow is to what is found in some of Canada’s older cities that I have visited. ThereContinue reading “Glasgow, Scotland: My Favourite Photos”

The park isContinue reading “A Walk Through The Rockeries”

Exploring McKay Lake and The Pond

One of the best things about living in Ottawa is the easy access to nature. After years of living in Ottawa’s downtown core, I now make my home in the Beechwood Village section of the city, which straddles the neighbourhoods of Vanier, New Edinburgh and Rockcliffe Park Village. There is a lot of green space aroundContinue reading “Exploring McKay Lake and The Pond”
