Swimming in Ottawa




As you might imagine, as every foreigner I miss some things about my country/ies. In this season, I really miss the chance to go the beach in Sorrento, travel to the beach in Sardegna or Croatia...or even just les Bains de Paquis in the lake of Geneva. Actually.. I miss just that fresh sensation of swimming in the sun. Specially in a place with such a nice landscape as Sorrento (you can see it in the picture behind).

Being a proactive person... I decided to take this situation in my hands and find a solution to my problems: my own urban swimming pool. Maybe it looks a bit small, but it works if you do not have to share it with other people. Actually if you seat in the right spot you could even have a yacuzzi! (I didn't try that, but it would be the first free SPA right in the middle of Ottawa.

What else can I say? Splash! Splash!

Hi Maria!

Thanks for your comment! Yes... it was hard to read all those comments. And then people say that Italians are bad losers... that shows that evryone is the same. Even worse is today's "Spiegel's" article with tons of stereotypes against Italians :'(

Steph!!!!
Thanks for your post as well hehe! I will keep posting pics about Ottawa so that you can see you home (and I will try to take a picture of the big apple between Ottawa and Toronto...but I saw it just once..I'll have to play attention next time).
And don't worry, we'll be here in a year, so if you come back by then you'll still have time to have fun with us :) (and we can all use the urban-swimming pool...but one at a time)

Hugs! Miss you too! (I am the luckiest of the trainees here, cause the new ones did not get the chance to meet you ) :)
