The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto

Hi guys! Last days of December 2017 I visited The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto. Lovely experience as I am very affectionate for Art! The venue itself is awesome! The Power Plant is Canada’s leading public gallery devoted exclusively to contemporary visual art. It is an innovative, not-for-profit cultural organization that enlivens, educates and entertains a diverse public.

I would like to share with you some highlights:

Michael Landy –  Demonstration

For his exhibition at The Power Plant, Michael Landy invites the public to collaborate in building a ‘wall of protest’ by submitting images, words, texts and slogans that represent their thoughts and feelings—of hope or of despair, on matters small or large, from high to low and across the cultural spectrum—to be transformed by the artist into drawings.

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.

We welcomed 2018 in Toronto and it was amazing!

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!

Speeding up to the top of CN Tower, Toronto.

Hello beautiful people! Highlights today for the colossal CN Tower in Toronto.

CN1

The entrance ticket is included in the Toronto City Pass, which is also sold here and is great value for money to see the top 5 attractions in Toronto. We hear it can get pretty crowded. We were probably lucky then, as we did not face any queues and could spend as much time as we wanted on each of the two levels. It was a clear day and views were amazing! This is definitely a must visit!
