  • Ottawa Swordplay
    Europe's Medieval and Renaissance eras were periods in which knights developed sophisticated systems for swordplay, martial arts, and looking really, really cool. Ottawa Swordplay's founder Craig Shackleton, who holds a degree in classical history, and his fellow instructor John Enzinas teach adults and kids to recreate the swordplay of these eras. They ground their curriculum in the research of Johannes Liechtenauer—who the instructors say unified the fighting arts of his time—and teachings from manuscripts that were compiled as far back as 1325. After research sessions and discussions on sword theory, the instructors lead their students into a padded practice area for hands-on classes. They teach beginners how to grab hold of longswords—a two-handed weapon—and engage in unarmoured combat. Instructors Shackleton and Enzinas can also teach how to adapt these techniques to more advanced weapons, such as a German rapier, a single-handed weapon knights used while texting.

  • Sundance Balloons
    Sundance Balloons' vibrant hot-air balloons float adventurous passengers over scenic landscapes. Each one-hour journey commences as sojourners greet their flight crew at a pre-determined location, receive a briefing on what to expect during the excursion, and observe their balloon as it swells to more than 10 stories in height. The woven gondolas glide 1,000 feet above the ground but can sometimes gently skim treetops or cornfields when wandering over the countryside. Since balloons drift with prevailing winds, there is no wind chill and travellers feel only a slight sensation of movement. As is tradition for ballooning, explorers of the appropriate age end their flight with a champagne toast to tranquility, beauty, and neighbourhoods that appear as giant smiley faces only visible from the air.
