I was invited by Shopify to come and visit Ottawa for 3 Weeks while having a job-application there in 2013.

My homebase is the Les Suites Hotel in the city center.

It's the perfekt location to explore Ottawa, as it's close to the Byward Market, Ottawa River and the Rideau Canal.

I attached a couple of photos with dropbox.
