They say Toronto is the smaller version of New York. People are super friendly and not in a permanent hurry. It’s one of the most multicultural (140 dialects) and safest cities in the world. Did you know the longest street in the world, Yonge street, is located here? (1,896 km) I went hunting for hotspots and ended up at a cool event. Check it out!
Some inside information: I like graffiti. They make such a cool background for pictures. There’s only one street in Toronto where graffiti is legal. Graffiti Alley. Or does that take away the thrill of the game?
Sometimes you just get lucky. Ran straight into Toronto Fashion week! It’s definitely smaller than New York, Milan of Paris Fashion week. But worth while to spot some fierce street styles.
The street is your catwalk.
Do feed the models. Who said fashion people don’t eat?
Kensington Market. An authentic bohemian neighborhood with organic juice bars, record stores, one of a kind jewelry and a lot of vintage anything. Worth the wait, fusion place Rasta Pasta. Where the Rasta side was more popular than the Pasta side.
The Distillery is the new Brooklyn. A former distillery turned into a trendy entertainmenet area. You’ll find, bars, restaurants and the best interior design here. The Distillery District Toronto.
Donut? Good… Croissant? Good… Cronut? Heaven! My first cronut at Bakery haus. And you can walk off this delicious pastry while shopping at Queen Street West.
