Vegas has always been high on our list, after hearing so much about the place. Based on your expectations, you know that it will be extravagant but nothing really prepares you for just how extravagant it really is.
And so the last day of 2017 has arrived, and what a year it has been. I love how at this time of year, we all come to reflect on what has been and even better, what is to come.
So it seems that winter is finally kicking into gear here in Toronto, and whilst winter is one of the things I love most about living in Canada, it’s also a bit sad to say goodbye to the leaves once again.
And so it got me reminiscing about some of the amazing times we’ve had this summer in Toronto. From our first trip down to Niagara Falls to a peaceful few days away at the cottage. Countless days downtown soaking up the sun by the puppy fountain at Berczy Park and the ever looming CN Tower which somehow still seems magical to me even now..
Iceland is such a trendy destination at the moment, but without hesitation, I can see why. It is a country filled with waterfalls, hot springs, glaciers and sheep. No words, or pictures could do the place justice.. but here are some of my highlights.
Quebec City is a charming, old-worldly and beautiful place – bonus points for being the cleanest city we’ve visited in Canada. It is very French as we were expecting, and our phrase book came in handy on quite a few occasions.
At the start of 2017, we said goodbye to Vancouver as it was time to see some more of Canada before we made our way to our next new home, Toronto. One thing we couldn’t leave without, was taking a trip to see Vancouver Island.
We had been patiently waiting all summer long to visit the Bruce Peninsula. Mid September was the earliest we could find available accommodation and so we hoped for the best when it came to the weather. But, we couldn’t have gotten any luckier! It was the best summer weather we had seen this year and we happened to be in the perfect place to enjoy it.
