392. 5 Days in Ottawa / Gatineau

Doubletree by Hilton golf course
Photos from my quick trip to Ottawa/Gatineau last week. We stayed at the Doubletree Hotel Gatineau-Ottawa. The burger & fries at their restaurant are amazing, especially when having it out by their golf course. I had it literally every single day we were there. The weather was perfect and sunny every day (except the last day when it was extremely hot - for my standards). On Friday, right when it was released, we went to watch A Million Ways to Die in the West. I had been excited to see this movie since I heard of it. It was good, but not as good as I had expected/hoped. Monday afternoon, we went for the afternoon tea at Chateau Laurier. The lounge there is very beautiful & the tea was wonderful..I'll be posting a separate review for it soon. Sat around the hotel pool a couple times (yes I just sat, as embarassingly enough..I don't know how to swim!). Took a walk in the forest where I came out with two very un-attractive mosquito bites the size of tennis balls on my legs. Luckily they've almost faded now. Watched movies in bed every night eating excessive amounts of Ferrero Rocher. Had a Beavertail one night. Other than that, I just worked. I don't remember if I ever mentioned on my blog what I do. At the moment I do PR/marketing/social media/etc for a couple different companies that I love. It's great being able to work from home with a flexible schedule..so hopefully more of these short trips to come.

Via Rail
Via-Railing back home. Saw the sunset & got a lot of work done on the way back, with almost the whole train to myself!



  1. Oh, I know how unpleasant mosquito bites can be. Looks like your hotel was in a very nice and quiet area. The food looks so good!

  2. Those burgers must have been amazing because I can hardly believe you had 4 of them! Then again, get them while you can right? Also it's a shame those nachos aren't recommended because when I saw them I thought they looked pretty yummy haha
