Hello from Ottawa

Travel Forums Introductions Hello from Ottawa

Hi everyone,

I just joined this wonderful forum and I am very excited about finding other likeminded travellers from everywhere!

Spring has sprung in Canada's capital and we are enjoying nice mild temperatures - making winter seem like a distant memory.

The kids and I are in the process of planning a trip around the world and hope to head out in November- January - we may wait until after Christmas so we can spend it with friends and family - and then leave for a year. So now we are looking at the logistics of getting scholl work completed, the house rented, money saved, deciding what gets sold off, and negotiating leave.

But the most fun is in planning the where to go! So far we have India, Tanzania, Kenya, Vietnam, Bali, Hawaii, Scotland as musts, but haven't figured out for how long and where all to go. I am looking forward to reading everyone's personal trip experiences. I woudl especially like to hear from others who have travelled as a family and hear some of the good family sites to see some of the not so hot and whatever else happens to fill the recesses of your mind...well within reason

If anyone has any questions concerning Ottawa or Toronto or the Puerto Vallarta area I would be glad to help out. I live in Ottawa, spend much time and lived in TO and spent a few months in and around Vallarta.

Happy travels!
