Casa Loma is a Gothic Revival style house and gardens that is now a museum and landmark. It was built as a residence for financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt and took three years and $3.5 million to be built. Wow…I say…Wow! And it is really amazing!

The house is filled with artworks from Canada and around the world. Casa Loma stood as a monument to its creator. The unique architecture has also made it a highly desirable location for film, including the X-Men series and Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Chicago and more. The house is majestic! With soaring battlements and secret passageways, it paid homage to the castles and knights of days gone by.

Hi guys! Today’s special is the adorable Blue Mountain Village. We visited there on an extremely cold day but it was beautiful in the winter. The village is really pretty! Excellent for ski lovers ….but, not my case as I can say!  🙂  I prefer to be an incognito photographer, recording with my camera what is going on in this lovely place! Hope you enjoy the pictures. See you soon!

Stratford… Shakespeare in Canada.

Hello guys! Today’s highlight is the lovely town of Stratford in Ontario. According to Wikipedia,  Stratford is the seat of Perth County which was settled by English, Irish, Scottish and German immigrants, in almost equal numbers, starting in the 1820s but primarily in the 1830s and 1840s. Most became farmers and even today the area around Stratford is known for mixed farming, dairying and hog production.  Stratford is really adorable! Famous for the Stratford Festival, it inspires you with culture and art. Many of the greatest Canadian, British and American actors play roles at the Stratford Festival. It was one of the first and is still one of the most prominent arts festivals in Canada and is recognized worldwide for its productions of Shakespearean plays. Hope you enjoy the pictures. See you soon!
