Canada 🇨🇦 has now a special place in my heart ❤! Why? Because it is the 50th country I’ve visited or at least traveled to! 🙃😲 But can you really say you’ve visited a country if you’ve been to only one city? 🤔 Anyway, here I am! I flew direct from Paris to Toronto where I spent a few days to discover the place. Here is what I have seen and done! Hopefully, this will help if you ever plan to come here! 🤗 Toronto nice to meet you! 👋🏻 😃
Good to know: Toronto used to be called York but always had the nickname of ‘Muddy York’. Toronto is an Indigenous name which means ‘tree standing in the water’ 🤓
Connectivity, you know the local SIM card
From the airport to the city
Getting around the city
Where to go?
CN Tower. I paid CAD43 (€28/£24/$33) with taxes otherwise it is advertised CAD38 to get to the top of the tower. They are doing some construction work at the moment which means that you can have access to the highest point of the tower for free! All should be back to normal (and chargeable) in summer 2018. 😁
Fun fact: the tower is struck by lightning ⚡ around 75 times a year! 😳
Go to St Lawrence Market. Fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and fish like any other markets but this is not only it! Walk around to eat cheese, olives and other delicacies from all around the world! Eat Chinese, South American, Italian, Greek and so much more 😋. I think that you’ll be going around a few times before you decide what you want to eat (like I did! 😉). Oh and don’t forget to check out downstairs too! 😁
Walk to the Old City Hall, which is now the courthouse of Toronto and see the Toronto sign! Such an iconic place of the city! 🇨🇦
A break from the city
Good to know: You can also check out Toronto Botanical Gardens and Edwards Gardens if you want to see more nature and beautiful flowers!
Toronto or the melting-pot city! Little Tokyo, Little Italy, Greektown, Chinatown, etc. Toronto is a multi-cultural city! Only 30% of people here are real Torontonians! 😲
