There are two things Madi, blogger at The Restless Worker, loves in life: exploring cool spots close to her home, and spending quality time with her husband during a romantic weekend, Ben.
The couple recently spent a weekend away from Toronto, sharing not only the car’s radio dial for a period of four hours (the ultimate test of a relationship?), but countless new memories together, on a road trip for two to the Ottawa Valley.
There, Madi and Ben discovered the simplicity and beauty that comes with reconnecting with your loved one on a quiet, snow-capped trail; the excitement of welcoming a morning sunrise together; and the serenity of being the first people that day to make fresh snowshoe tracks – crunch, crunch, crunch.
Most of all? The couple learned that, sometimes, luxury and rejuvenation can be found in an unexpected spot, like a little spa overlooking the frozen lake, or a restaurant where the owner knows you by name, even though you were strangers just the day before.
