WELCOME TO CAPITAL CITY EXPLORER, I’M ROSALYN, AND THIS IS MY CREATIVE SPACE.
Hey! I’m Rosalyn, a registered nurse living in Ottawa, Canada. I’m passionate about my career and also about maintaining a healthy work life balance. On my days off you can find me exploring my city, hiking or skiing in Gatineau, writing at a local coffee shop, on the couch watching Netflix and drinking a glass of wine, or enjoying time spent with my s.o., friends, and family.
I love my city and I’m passionate about helping others to discover it’s unique quirks and activities. Over the past four years, I’ve explored so much of the city, tried different restaurants, and gone on weekend getaways just a quick road trip away.
I’ve created this blog with hopes to share my love for exploring and having new experiences – both in my own city and abroad and to inspire people to live life to the fullest and be present in each moment.
I believe self-care is one of the most important things we can do and for me it involves relaxation, reflection through writing, and getting active outdoors.
I hope through engaging in my creative space you can get inspired and in return I can make new connections with you. I’ve divided up my posts in the categories linked above:
Ottawa – guides to my favourite capital city activities.
Lifestyle – how I maintain my work-life balance.
Home – my organization tips and experience from being a serial mover during university.
Travel – my city travel guides, including Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Niagara, Quebec City, Seattle, Eastern Townships, and Boston.
Nursing – for all you nurses out there, some of my tips for surviving nursing school and long nursing shifts.
Writing – just some personal writing I decided to share, this section is kind of a collage of my thoughts and feelings.
Thanks for stopping by my creative space! I’d love to connect with you, so please feel free to check out my social links above or send me a message through the contact form below!
