Elora Gorge Conservation Area, Ontario

Bonjour beautiful people! Elora Gorge is famous for its cliffs descending into the Grand and Irvine Rivers. If you are an adventure lover, this would be your perfect place mainly during Summer. The park offers canoeing, paddle boat rentals, hiking, camp-grounds, fishing and picnicking. Some of the limestone cliffs are 24 meters high. We visited there in a very cold windy day. It was so cold that I confess I had some difficult to breath! However the views are breathtaking indeed! 🙂

Toronto, the city known for its cultural diversity.

Hello guys! Today I would like to share with you some pictures of Toronto, Ontario. With a population of 2.79 million people (5.5 million in the GTA – Greater Toronto Area) it is heralded as one of the most multicultural cities in the world. According to Toronto website over 140 languages and dialects are spoken in Toronto, and just over 30 per cent of Toronto residents speak a language other than English or French at home. This is awesome, isn’t it? 🙂

Apart from the intense winter in Toronto last December, I mean… we got even minus 20 degrees Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit) on some days and we managed anyhow to enjoy every moment! A nice thing is to use The Path, a network of underground pedestrian tunnels, elevated walkways, and at-grade walkways connecting the office towers of Downtown Toronto. Also I recommend to stop for a coffee inside the Path or in one of those cosy Cafés in the city.

For breakfast experience here some hints of the places where I had breakfast (or was it lunch?) 😉

Sunset Grill: They have a great breakfast. The place was very busy on a Sunday  morning, so you can expect some queuing. Not so many options but the food is good quality and the service is very attentive! A nice place!

TorontoM

Evviva Restaurant: Good variety of breakfast options. Attentive service, comfortable place and reasonable prices. Recommended!

TorontoN

Fran’s Restaurant & Bar: Great options for breakfast (all-day) and more: sandwiches, burgers, ribs… For our little experience in Toronto, one of the best value for money.

Anyway in a city with so much diversity you certainly will find some great restaurant to suit you! 🙂 We loved Toronto…it is clean, beautiful, cosmopolitan and I felt pretty safe there!

Casa Loma, the house on the hill in Toronto, Ontario.

Bonjour beautiful people! Today I would like to share with you some pictures from Casa Loma, a special tourist attraction in Toronto, Canada.

Casa Loma0

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.
