a day out in toronto
A perfect summer day in Toronto! I hardly know this city at all; when you're from Vancouver, a ticket to Toronto can sometimes cost as much as a ticket to Europe, so I always tended to go further afield. Now that my parents are semi-based in Hamilton, I'm really enjoying properly exploring parts of the country I was only vaguely familiar with before. In the case of Toronto though, it wasn't so much exploring as meeting up with loads of friends I hadn't seen for years. Half of my Vancouver friends seem to have moved here, and when you add my favourite cousins into the mix... well, I kind of want to move here myself (especially after everyone was putting on the pressure all day).
We didn't see much of Toronto, just had coffee and lunch and dinner and hung out with my baby cousins and my friend's adorable new puppy, but I had the biggest, cheesiest grin on my face by the the time I staggered back onto the bus at 11 pm. It seems like an amazing city; I'm sure I'll be back!
Quality sister time
