Visiting Belgium 2012

Visiting Belgium 2012

Belgium would be our fourth and last country to visit on this trip. We had begun the trip in Copenhagen, Denmark, taken a one-day side-trip across the bridge into Sweden, then traveled to the Netherlands where we visited Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Now after a short train trip from Rotterdam we were staying for a few days in Brugge, Belgium before visiting Ghent and flying home from Bruxelles.

Ottawa to Montreal before flight to Denmark

Ottawa to Montreal before flight to Denmark

Once Graeme and his brother, Alan, decided to fly to Denmark on a flight out of Montreal, the question then became how to get to Montreal from Ottawa. There are plenty of options. Although not always the case, from past experience the most expensive option is usually to get a connecting flight from Ottawa International Airport. Usually, the cost of this option is a determining factor but, since travelers need to be at the airport early to get through security screening, etc., time can also become a factor especially since airlines won’t book connecting flights unless there is adequate time (big buffer) at the Montreal end to transfer both luggage and passengers to the international flight.Winter weather also plays into the equation but in the summer is not normally a determining factor.
