From Place To Space: Toronto

September 2, 2012 0


One week ago I had the pleasure to meet one of my Canadian fellow bloggers here in Munich. Tim lives and works in Toronto and speaking to him I was reminiscing about my visit to Toronto two years ago. Now I’ve decided to take you on a little retrospective trip to this fabulous Canadian metropolis.

Even though I’d spent just a few days in Toronto, I truly fell in love with the city. Its beautiful location on the shores of Lake Ontario, its laid-back inhabitants, the vibrant life on the street and the mix of cultures and nations made for an immediate connection between the city and myself. I could see myself living there. That was the feeling I gained after just a few days.

I was amazed by the bustling downtown area – walking around Yonge Street, Dundas Street, Church Street left me with the feeling that this is probably the most ‘American’ part of Canada. Just a few steps further I found myself in the middle of Toronto’s Chinatown with its lively shops and restaurants. I was amazed by the richness of architectural styles in the city and enjoyed every new sight. The afternoon sun was perfectly savoured on the lawn in front of the Trinity College and I had an amazing dinner in a restaurant’s super cute little backyard. Alas, I forgot the place’s name! 

Anyway, the gist of today’s little blogpost: If you happen to head to Canada any time soon, don’t miss Toronto. It is such a welcoming city full of life and creativity. I am pretty sure you will feel as quickly at home as I did. Happy Monday!

    Oh Canada! As a native Montrealer, my heart lies there, of course. But the sections of Toronto you are sharing with us here are really great, I must admit 🙂 Love your pictures! I can almost smell the Canadian air, lol. Thanks Igor 🙂

    it is so nice to see Toronto through your lens Ignor! Funny how I get so used to all the colors and flavours the city has to offer and starting to forget what a great city I actually live in. You will have to check out the waterfront area next time … it’s the perfect place to spend a nice sunny afternoon and perhaps head over to the Toronto Island!
