Winter Bucket List


Ah, Winter. My least favourite season by a long shot… The cold weather tends to make me want to hide away in my favourite pj’s until the warm weather comes back. The winter in Ottawa is especially harsh and lately, we’ve been in the midst of some crazy weather. At the beginning of January, temperatures were as low as -37 degrees Celcius with the windchill and this week we had 11-degree weather which made everything melt into a soggy mess before freezing again! Can you tell I’m pumped about this season?

Even though the weather here is not to be desired I have to admit that this city does a great job at finding ways to enjoy the season. There are skating rinks on every corner, festivals and special events going on and lots of Canadian cheer because of the winter Olympics. It would be a shame to miss out on all the fun!

Here’s my winter bucket list.


Writing this list made the idea of enjoying winter feel a little bit more manageable. It’s time to zip up my coat and buy a new bobble hat. Let’s see how many things I can accomplish!

    We had a great time in Ottawa but I’m just not sure I could ever make a permanent move to Canada. As much as I like the snow, I don’t think I’m cut out for true winters. I’d love to visit a board game cafe! A lot of our local bars are starting to host game nights. It sounds super fun because it’s hard to play games with just two people at home.

      I’m totally with you on this! The weather is brutal… Even I wasn’t expecting it. It is really hard to have a board game night with two people! Adam and I never play games but I think it would be fun to try. Stay warm!
