Time for another quick trip report. . . I have always wanted to take in Canada’s National Remembrance Day ceremony which takes place every year in Canada’s capital of Ottawa, Ontario. I didn’t get my act together last year, despite being in Ottawa on a work trip the week after. This year, I upped my game a bit (or schedule organization depending on your perspective) and was lucky enough to have work meetings the week prior to Remembrance Day which is recognized in Canada on November 11, 2019.

I didn’t fancy staying in Ottawa for the weekend at my own expense after the business travel portion ended, so I decided to leave town and return for the ceremony. I checked around for easy connections from Ottawa and didn’t find to many which didn’t gobble up whole days of travel. With a toss between expensive New York, Chicago and Atlantic Canada, I opted for the cheaper Atlantic Canada provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick; the only two provinces I have yet to visit in Canada. Air Canada offered 5 flights per day and I used an 15% discount code courtesy of a promotion on the Canadian American Express Platinum Card. I then used Air Canada e-upgrades courtesy of Air Canada top tier status to upgrade myself into business class.

The routing ended up like this:

YOW-YHZ-YOW (paid)

I hope you’ll follow along on a short Atlantic adventure…
