Day trip to Montreal – July 17

We went to Montreal on Wednesday. We first took a bus to get there. It was around 2 hours of travel. The first place that we went to in Montreal was Mount Royal. It was a great vantage point to see the city. After, we went to the Eaton shopping centre where we had lunch. In the same shopping centre, we went to the Grevin wax museum, where we went after lunch. In the wax museum, there were a lot of famous people like hockey players, musicians like Justin Bieber, actors like George Clooney and more people who were modelled out of wax. The wax figures were incredibly realistic. In one part of the museum, you can see how they make the wax sculptures too.
When we finished our tour of the museum, we went for a walk around the city. Our tour guide took us to one church that’s called the Notre-Dame Basílica. We finished our tour of Montreal here, and went back to the bus to go home.


Bowling – July 16

On Tuesday July 16th, we went bowling in the afternoon. To bowl, you need to throw the bowling ball, making it slide on the floor. The objective is to hit as many pins down as possible. The player with the most points by hitting down the pins, wins the game. One of the basic rules you need to know about bowling is that you have a second chance to to hit the pins if you miss the first time. However, if you get a strike (hit all pins down on the first try), then you can’t throw again. One thing I found interesting was that the bowling balls were smaller and they didn’t have 3 holes in the ball, so I found it harder to get a strike. Although the most important thing is that we had a lot of fun playing it!


Museum of Nature – July 10

Today we went to the nature museum. It was very impressive because they explained things about animals and the planet. The part that I liked the most was the dinosaurs were awesome and very big. My favorite dinosaur is triceratops.

Laser Quest – July 8

Yesterday we went to the Laser Quest. At Laser Quest you shoot your enemies and get the maximum possible points. You can be a team or alone. Points are obtained by hitting the chest, shoulders, gun and back. It was a very fun and very entertaining activity.

This activity was very short for me and I have liked to have been chosen by the groups.


The Journey Begins

Welcome to Summer English Explorer in Ottawa, Canada!

We hope you enjoy reading about all the exciting activities we are doing and looking at our pictures too! We are making new friends from many different countries, having lots of fun experiences and every day brings new discoveries and memories.

Museum of History – July 5

At the Museum of History, we learned about Canada. I was surprised to find out more about Canada’s independence and how the immigrants and women, at that time, didn’t have any rights. The museum was a great experience because I learned about another culture.


Canoeing – July 4

Yesterday, we went to the river to go canoeing with everyone from the school. It was really hot but since we were on the water, we just splashed water at one another to cool do.  We were so tired when we finished, but we had a great time.


Byward Market – July 3

First, we took the bus and went to the market where we found an Ottawa monument and a fountain. After, we took pictures and we ended up doing a scavenger hunt competition but we could not get all the questions. When we finished, they gave us free time and went we to see stores. I bought myself a football.


Bus Tour – July 2

It was the first day of us being here in Canada, and we had just started to make friends. The bus trip was so interesting because we went to the parliament and the teacher explained what is done in parliament and its history. After, we went to go see a river; the surrounding landscape was so beautiful. This trip was so interesting and fun. I love Canada!
