Sightseeing in Ottawa

Today I’ve spent most of the day sightseeing in Ottawa with my two colleagues joining me on this business trip. We had so much fun walking around this beautiful city, and the weather was perfectly sunny and warm.

I started off the day with an early morning workout (which was very easy as I was jet lagged and woke up at five). 

Great bathroom mirror for selfies! 😜

Had a great run (finally back on track with the pace and breathing again) and working the climb mill before doing some shoulder and ab exercises.

And no, I did not wear a face mask while working out, it’s a Snapchat filter. I was just trying to be funny (and failing badly at it, I know). 😆

There’s lots of videos of today’s ventures in Ottawa on my Snapchat, so if you’re interested I advise you to go watch them there. 

The highlight of my day was going to the National Gallery of Canada and seeing “Maman” from Louise Bourgeois. The gigantic sculpture of a spider mummy is absolutely amazing. It’s been on my bucket list a long time and now I’ve checked it off! I’m terrified of spiders, the live ones (and dead if I’m to be honest), and this sculpture kind of both freaked me out and amazed me. If ever in Ottawa (or the five other cities in the world hosting a spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois) you should really be sure to pay it a visit. 🙏🏻👌🏻

We also visited the Canadian Museum of Nature, which was nice (but a lot smaller than I had imagined). I love exhibits like this, especially the dinosaur exhibits. It is well worth a visit! Especially if you have kids! My daughter would have loved this place!

They even had live specimens of insects and spiders (and a few more species).

The kids seemed very exited about that. 

How I wish the bones could talk (to others than the paleontologists). I for one would love to listen to them telling about its life’s adventures.

Love how they’ve built the new and modern houses around the old ones. 😆 We saw a lot of others just like this. Both cute and kind of tragic.

And do these mean they keep fishes under the street? 😆

Now I’m off to bed. Early morning in the gym tomorrow again. 💪🏻

Laters babes!

Over and out
