2018 TRAVEL HIGHLIGHTS

A Casa Loma Christmas

Last weekend, Hamilton and I visited a pretty popular tourist attraction here in Toronto, which for some reason (that I can currently see) doesn't even make the top 30 list on Trip Advisor... Casa Loma. A wealthy man named Pellatt commissioned Casa Loma, which is a huge, historic house museum, built between 1911 and 1914. He … Continue reading A Casa Loma Christmas

LAKE ONTARIO BIKE RIDE | LIVING IN TORONTO

During our first week here in Toronto, the weather was wild. Well, the weather was warm. Very warm. Which was pretty wild for us Brits. Coming from London, all people repeatedly said to us about moving to Canada was that it was going to be cold. I mentally prepared myself to step off the plane … Continue reading LAKE ONTARIO BIKE RIDE | LIVING IN TORONTO

GETTING OUR VISAS | MOVING TO TORONTO

So its now been 2 weeks (to the day) since we moved to Toronto - at the start of the second week, we went on a road trip around New England and we only just got back, so haven't had much of a chance to post about the whirlwind of an arrival/first week we had. … Continue reading GETTING OUR VISAS | MOVING TO TORONTO
