Voice of Travelers to Ottawa

Ticket for Ottawa's conference

Hi, my name is Carmen and I study in University of Toronto. I am a star student. I have been on the dean’s list for 2 consecutive years. I took part in a competition that allowed me to take part in a youth conference in Ottawa. I won the competition however i could not afford to get the ticket. I checked my piggy bank to see if I had enough money for the ticket but I didn't. My parents work really hard to make our ends meet so I could not ask them to buy me a ticket. An extra ticket expense would have been a lot for them. I decided to not go. I went to my dean’s office to let him know. There I saw an airline ticket on his desk with my name printed on it! I was beyond thrilled. This ticket meant the world to me. My trip to Ottawa was great and I even won the conference. I met some great people. I really loved the way everything was so organized in Ottawa.

Ticket to Canada's Capital

Hello, this is Jeff. My wife's family is from Canada while i am from the US. This summer, we bought a ticket to visit Ottawa. My wife and I often had friendly banters about Canada and the US, but after this trip, my mind regarding Canada has been changed. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying every minute of the trip. My whole family was happy we got a ticket to visit Ottawa. The ticket was direct so our flight was also very comfortable. I have never felt so enthusiastic about Canadian history than i did during this visit. I was almost upset we got a return ticket with us because I just did not want to leave. My whole family had a fantastic time visiting Canadian monuments and learning about history. We will definitely be on a lookout for ticket deals again.
