The Legal Nomads Gluten Free Guide to Ottawa

I have now spent two years in the National Capital Region, with one year in Aylmer in Quebec, and one year in Ottawa. While this guide focuses primarily on Ottawa, I’ve included a few spots ‘across the river’ on the Quebec side, as there are some celiac-friendly treats there that aren’t to be missed.

My Favourite Books of 2022

I know, I know. After not posting for a year, I’m on a roll. Initially, I was going to include this post in my 2022 gift guide, but the gift guide got too long and I thought it was best to split them up into two.

3 Years Later, A Surprising Reunion with Something Important

A few weeks into December, I received a message in my “requests” folder on Facebook. I didn’t know it at the time, since it was buried in Facebook purgatory. It was only a month later that I thought to check my requests inbox. I found the following message. Hi, you don’t know me, but we found a backpack with your credit cards in it on my roof in Park...

Life Updates: a Patreon, a New Newsletter, and a Site Redesign

It’s been a long while since I’ve written on Legal Nomads. When people ask how I’m doing, I’ve taken to saying, “I’m hanging in as best as I can.” What else can we all do? These are pretty unusual, extreme times, and honestly I’m just impressed with anyone who makes it through each day without cracking at least once. While I haven’t been writing much...
