When foreign visitors think of visiting Canada, they usually consider the large cities of Toronto, Vancouver, or Montreal. Maybe they think about the popular Niagara Falls or other popular tourist attractions at the Rocky Mountain National Parks of Jasper and Banff. Situated between Toronto and Montreal is Canada’s capital: the city of Ottawa. And in 2017, Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday, so Ottawa will be the center of attention! There’s a lot to see in Ottawa, with different activities throughout the year. Because Ottawa is located in a climate that offers extremes in all four seasons, there is something going on at any time of the year. Here are some of the top places to visit in Ottawa.
The South Island of New Zealand offers a vastly different landscape to the North Island, with spectacular mountain ranges and long, rugged coastal stretches.

Discover the best of the south with this road trip itinerary for New Zealand: the South Island.
04Apr 2017 Plan a Trip to Sydney Like a Local
According to Destination NSW, international visitors spend about 12 million nights a year in Sydney. As a local, I always wonder what they think they are coming to see when they plan a trip to Sydney. I see them around Circular Quay and the Rocks. I see them buying Ugg boots. But what I really wonder is whether they have the opportunity to experience Sydney like a local. While we appreciate the harbor, Bondi beach, and Taronga Zoo, I’d like to think that most tourists would like the opportunity to plan a trip to Sydney like a local. And it’s not that hard.
