Enjoying the Peace at Lake Placid with @OttawaMommyClub

 Lyne Proulx of the Ottawa Mommy Club travels with her 17 year old son Mathieu, her  year old daughter Christelle and hubby Guy.




My family and I opted to take a 3 day trip this summer just to get away, but we didn’t want to travel too far and spend most of our time on the road. I started looking at cities that were 3 -4 hours away from Ottawa and stumbled upon Lake Placid, NY.

 My husband had visited the Olympic city way back in the 1980’s and remembered how beautiful the village was and the scenic drive by car.  Well, he was right as the view of the Adirondacks mountains were breath-taking and the highway road was so picturesque as we entered villages on our way to Lake Placid.

It took us exactly 3 hours, including spending only a few minutes at customs in Corwall, to arrive in the village of Lake Placid.

The Florida Keys with @CanBlogHouse

Sandy and her partner traveled to Florida for a travel blogging conference and decided to add on a trip to the Florida Keys while in the Sunshine State.




When many Canadians think of a winter vacation in Florida, they think of spending a week with Mickey Mouse and the gang in the Orlando area, lying on the white sand beaches of the Florida Gulf Coast, or hanging out on the chic east coast shores of Miami-Fort Lauderdale.

As someone who had the chance to visit a few of these east, central, and west coast Florida destinations in the 1980's and 90's, my recent adventure into the Florida Keys left me asking myself why it took me so long to explore this ""other"" Florida.
