  • Summer In the City: A Weekend to Remember


    Firstly a huge thank you to the organisers, volunteers, sponsors, guests and of course attendees which made this years Summer in the City such an awesome place to be!

    I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my weekend; surrounded by a community which sustains itself on a collective passion to create music, vlogs and sketches which in turn inspires more and more people everyday. Whether it was sitting in the open mic room or wandering around the venue everyone I came across put a smile on my face, just seeing how enthusiastic, passionate and exited everyone was truly made this weekend a one to remember. I can’t wait to see you all again next year!

  • For my last full week in Canada I’ve been residing in a small cottage near Picton in Ontario. The cottage, suitably named Sunset Cottage, looks onto the lake where each night when the sunset the fire pit would be lit and it would be marshmallows all round.
    Spending most of my week in the water I tried my hand at Kayaking, which I personally deem a success due to the lack of falling into the water. 
    The Sunsets seen at Sunset Cottage were simply flawless and the bad weather which greeted us upon arrival was soon forgotten and replaced with beautiful days which led to beautiful evenings where the stars shone bright above us.

  • The last few days have been incredibly busy, between preparing for parties and swimming in the rivers I have had little time to think about typing up my adventures in Canada, and for that I apologise.
    Yesterday I started my day by sitting in the garden reading my book in the 31 degree heat. For me Sunday was a day of relaxation at the cinema then a visit to Britannia park. The relaxing activities of yesterday were important after the swimming and partying that took place in the days before hand. Gatineau Park is the place we have spent our time swimming. Each day spent there was at a different beach, both were equally busy but perfect for our picnic. As for the parties the first was a BBQ in the back yard which earlier in the day we had got decorations for in the town. The second party started on Saturday and ended on Sunday. At the party there was a live band named The Start who preformed a number of classic English Rock songs. The band was excellent and had the fifty plus guests dancing into the early hours of Sunday.

  • My first day in Ottawa was a hot one, despite the puddles on the floor the temperature was at a scorching 28 degrees. After a slow start in the morning myself, my grandma and my cousin Aimee all set off to catch the 45 minute bus ride to Ottawa.

    Once we arrived our first mission was to get ourselves some lunch. A ham and cheese baguette later I was ready to explore the city of Ottawa. After our food we walked down to the Locks and watched as two boats made thier way up the canal. The walk down the canal was pleasant and a small breeze had broke through the days humidity making our journey even more enjoyable, along our way we learnt the history of the Locks.

    In the afternoon when the heat became unbearable we made our way to the National gallery of Canada. Once inside we made our way to Sakahàn: International Indigenous Art, this particular exhibition had me in awe. Featuring more than 150 works of art by over 50 artists from 16 artists the exhibition was a combination of impressive instalments which supplied surprises around every corner. In particular, there were two instalments which caught my interest. The first required you to lie down on supplied mattresses as you watched six globes protruding from the ceiling, within the globes the was a series of videos which, when combined with the surround sound created an effect of relaxation. My second favourite instalment was one which allowed visitors to take a part of it home. The piece was the length and width of a large wall and consisted of what could be described as posters hung upon the wall itself. The art work allowed you to take a poster from the wall and take it for yourself, underneath were large bright letters spelling out a word or sentence that was not yet fully revelled.

    All in all my first day in Ottawa was a one which I will hopefully never forget.
