Ottawa Jail Hostel.


Last weekend, I was booked in a jail in Ottawa. I committed no crime but I was locked up for two nights—without bail. It’s an odd thing, right? I was handed out a key to my cell, some white bed sheets and fresh towel. No burly, intimidating police or guards led me up to my […]

What’s Inside the Ice Hotel in Quebec City

One thing that’s in my bucket list is: sleep in the Ice Hotel. I’ve been to two Ice Hotels already: one was in Montreal in 2013 and the other was in Quebec last weekend. I can’t afford to stay in there yet. As a poor backpacker and a solo traveler,  I’ll skip that for now. […]

Ice Castle and Ice Sculptures

Last weekend, I went to Quebec City for the last weekend of its annual Winter Carnaval. I’m glad I did–despite the freezing winter that almost made my cheeks as hard as a stone.
