In our previous lives (ie. before we had our lovely little girls) we enjoyed travelling backpacking-style and were fortunate enough to be able to tour the world a couple of times. Our favourite moments from these travels include awkward misunderstandings in China, seemingly suicidal hiking trips in Taiwan, and the thrill of "catching a wave" in Hawaii.
These days we consider ourselves lucky if we survive a weekend of car-camping in the hills of nearby Gatineau Park, as this is all we seem to manage with two jobs, two kids, and two cats.
Our friends would probably describe us as easy-going, approachable, and a tad nuts, if in a good way. We can't really sit still, love tinkering around the house and socialising with our fantastic family, friends, and neighbours.
We both work in IT, like all sorts of (more or less) electronic music, and have been known to watch 5 episodes of Supernatural in a row on a school night.
Since we have always been exceptionally well received by locals and friends during our own travel adventures, we would like to return the favour by offering travellers to Ottawa the same warm, secure, and enjoyable welcome.
