cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: 122 / SUMMER RECAP

Sunday, 13 September 2015


I can't believe that summer is already over. I had an amazing time exploring not only my city but a good chunk of my country as well. My original plans for this summer included me taking a road trip out to Newfoundland but I ended up going in the exact opposite direction. My parents and I ended up driving across the country in their RV to visit my brother, Derek, in Alberta. It was my second time making the trip out there but I was fortunate enough to be able to do a bit more exploring this time. We stayed overnight in each of the provinces (and a few states) that we traveled through. It was great to see my brother and we took a day trip up to the West Edmonton Mall together. The mall has been somewhere I've dreamed of going for a long time and I'm happy that I get to cross it off of my bucket list.

The rest of my summer was spent running all over my city, Ottawa, with my friends. I went to a handful of concerts (Shania Twain, Drake and Kanye), went on a few day trips out of town (Montreal, Sandbanks) and I spent a good chunk of the season either at work, at home, or with friends. Summer 2015 was definitely one for the books. Although I'm sad it sped by so quickly, I'm excited for my favourite season, autumn, to commence.

Photos were taken by myself - except for the photo of me at Lake Louise. That was taken by my brother, Derek.
