  • Ottawa's brand-new Stanley Cup MonumentI'm a massive hockey fan and was excited when I heard about the inauguration of a Stanley Cup Monument in downtown Ottawa. However, the monument doesn't really look spectacular and feels lost in the small alley. It would have made more sense to build a bigger monument or even a small museum close to Canadian Tire Centre, home arena of the Ottawa Senators.

    Here are a few pictures from the fifth and last day of my short autumn road trip. I drove all the way from Brantford to Niagara Falls where I spent about two and a half hours. Sincerely, I would have liked to stay much longer. The attractions were outstanding, the weather was great and I was walking around with a smile on my face all along. It has been the first time I came back to Niagara Falls in more than ten years and only the second time in total. The last time I went there, I was still a high school student myself and had plenty of fun. What a trip down memory lane. In the afternoon, I drove all the way from Niagara Falls to Gatineau. There were some traffic jams in and around Toronto as one might expect but the rest was fine. I hope I will return to Niagara Falls soon and stay for a few days, maybe to see the falls during winter time. The last day was a great conclusion to my short autumn road trip even if I didn't have the time to visit Hamilton and Belleville. This means that I will make one or two weekend trips to these towns in a foreseeable future.

    Here are a few pictures from the fourth day of my short autumn road trip. I started in Point Edward and drove south and south-west along Sainte Claire River and Detroit River to Windsor. Then, I headed back east and made it all the way to Brantford where I spent the night. Weather was great, landscapes were beautiful and I really liked the city of Windsor in particular. Driving was a little bit exhausting after an early nightfall.
