March and I took a 5 hour drive to Ottawa this weekend to attend the Digi60 film competition. March had a film entered so we thought we’d take a hike up Canada and escape from Toronto for a bit. Over the 2 nights we spent at Digi60 we saw some phenomenal films from local filmmakers. March snagged 3 awards for his new Documentary, “TOY BOY” which will be available soon to view online. Dominka’s post on Airbnb was nothing short of amazing while we ventured around all weekend in the blistering cold of Ottawa. I can’t imagine driving up again anytime soon but I definitely recommend staying here again.
While we were there we managed to visit the National Gallery, the Parliament Building and purchased some sweet crystals in the market. We ate at Wilf & Ada’s for brunch and dined at Fauna which was conveniently located down the street. Dominka’s place was comfortable and just what we needed while we stayed away. It’s no surprise I’m obsessed with AirBnb, pretty happy that we’ve never had a bad experience yet (KNOCK ON WOOD!).
Currently planning on the busy week ahead after my getaway weekend.
