Canada, Travel

Historical Ottawa + Montreal // Canada Road Trip

I am wrapping up the rest of our Canada trip in today’s post! Both cities were beautiful, and I really enjoyed seeing many of the historical and picturesque buildings and areas.


I had no idea what to expect from Ottawa, as I had never been there nor had I done much research on the city. The only piece of information I knew was that it was Canada’s capital. Ottawa turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the holiday and was so beautiful! The parliament building was really something special. There was also a very charming walking street filled with tiny shops and plenty of restaurants. The sun was shining, and we all had a great time exploring.

RIP to this amazing dress from Old Navy. I left it hanging in the hotel room and called them several times, but they never found it. I then called Old Navy to see if they had any left in stock, as it was sold out online, but it wasn’t available. SAD TIMES. At least I still have it in two other patterns … 🙂



I was very excited to see Montreal as it has French roots and is said to mirror Paris in many ways. I found this to be true in certain areas of the city. However, I didn’t expect the other neighborhoods to be so diverse! Each one was very unique, and it made exploring the city so much fun. There is even an underground city which is ideal in the bitter-cold winters and hot summers. There was amazing shopping opportunities both above and underground. There is so much to see and do. The photos below are from Old Montreal which treated me to a little piece of Paris. 🙂

On our last night of the trip, Nicolas found a very special restaurant for us to try – C’Chocolat. We stopped here for dessert, and it was fantastic. The dishes were extremely unique and rich. My favorite was the Crepuccine which is described as a fettuccine style crepe, brownie chunk “meatballs” and creamy gelato, topped with hot chocolate sauce, and white chocolate shavings which looked just like parmesan cheese! It was strangely delicious!


I wish you all a wonderful week! xx

    What a fun trip! I’ve never been to Montreal or Ottawa, but they sound like neat cities! And that’s too bad about your dress! That chocolate dessert sounds amazing though!

    Bummer about the dress. But imagine the life it’s having with someone from now on, maybe your dress will go on to do great things. Your pictures are gorgeous, how fun for you to travel to new places and experience the world.
