Milan’s Ottawa

Last winter, I made a map of the parts of Oxford in which I would be likely to find myself over the course of a week.

Here is my approximate Ottawa map:

Map of the parts of Ottawa where Milan Ilnyckyj spends time

It is basically defined by three corridors, leading from my home to work, the grocery store, and the Rideau Centre. During the summer, it would certainly have a few more tendrils. That said, it is a safe estimate that 50% of my time is spent within the tiny (unmarked) rectangles of my cubicle and bedroom.

Author: Milan

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. To be a bit more precise, I totter across the huge snowbanks beside these three roads. The city has huge tractors they use to push the snow off the road and into high banks along the sidewalks.

  2. Rick Steve’s London vs. Milan’s Ottawa. ;-) This entry has its title similar to a travel guide, but the contents are… hmm… somewhat different. Hehe!

  3. The title of the Oxford post was an allusion to Lyra’s Oxford: a companion book to the His Dark Materials trilogy written by Philip Pullman.

    I suppose this title is an allusion to the title of the prior post.

    Rick Steve’s Italy was a valuable book for me when visiting Italy in 2004.

  4. I move a regularly travel a bit more widely now than when this map was made, but not overwhelmingly so.
