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!

A weekend break in Paris…

…is always a good idea! 🙂  Bonjour beautiful people! Among many wonderful things about living in Luxembourg, one is its privileged location with many opportunities for nice trips. You can easily reach remarkable and lovely places in other countries on a day trip or weekend. Today’s highlights are some images from Paris last weekend.

We took the opportunity to try the delicious choux of the pâtisserie “Odette Paris“. We ordered a selection choux with different flavours and all of them were quite good. Coffee and hot chocolate were also good. A very nice place!

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!
