Tomorrow we are leaving Ottawa for our trip through Northern America. Hung over and tired we are struggling to find any motivation to tie up our final loose ends after spending the summer living and working in Canada.
I tend to visit small, quirky museums on the road, places not in big cities. The 2 museums I chose are ones that have been around for some time & my cousin was available to join me, so we could gab & see the exhibits at the same time. Perfect.
The Museum of Civilization is at a great location on the Hull side, so you see the Ottawa …
I've stayed here before for the location so close to downtown Byward Market & other stores. It is not a fabulous place - few hostels are, but you choose them for convenience & economy. I like Ottawa, family connections go way back so I visit at least once a year.

26 hour round trip to Ottawa! How did we get there?

We were then introduced to a 'semi-private' room, which turned out to be three walls,and a curtain. Just enough room for the bed and to stand beside it, and a lamp. It was sufficient for us as I don't understand people who want to spend time inside in a hostel when there is a new city to be explored. Bathrooms were clean, but there was a lack of atmosphere.
