Flew back yesterday from Toronto to London. Travelled on British Airways 787 Dreamliner, first time for me. Impressed with aircraft. Bright and spacious interiors, very comfortable, even in my economy seat. Large windows, which give a much more relaxing atmosphere. And the service was superb. Only downside to me were the dividing arm rests could […]
Had a great time watching Toronto FC draw with Vancouver Whitecaps 1-1. So for all of those numerous footie enthusiasts out there, a quick facts. Toronto play in the MLS (Major League Soccer) and you have 20 teams, 3 of which are Canadian – Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver – with the rest from USA. They […]
These two images rather sum up Toronto in the summer.
Maybe it is because of the harsh winters, but once spring comes around, the city lives life to the full. Street side cafés and bars, seemingly a festival every week ,with the various immigrants who now make the fabric of Canadian society, actively encouraged to remember their roots and to share their culture. And of course cuisine.
On the lake side, more restaurants and music venues. In the next few weeks Michael Buble. John legend, Yani are all performing here, along with many others that mean more to my son than me. But it is vibrant and buzzing.
If you travel just a few minutes drive east of the city, you even have a selection of beaches. Ok, the lake water can be chilly, even on a hot sunny day, but the atmosphere is wonderfully chilled and relaxed.
As you might gather I rather like the place. It is the melting pot of cultures that makes it rather special. Very different from when I fist visited almost 30 years ago when it was a rather proud boring city that closed up at nine. Now it is totally different, with a great music and cuisine scene.
I am off to see Toronto FC, the soccer team, on Wednesday. Been several times before, really good noisy crowd, and currently Jermaine Defoe is banging in the goals for fun.
As many of you will know I am currently in Toronto where we have family.
I really enjoy it here. In many ways it is a typical high rise North American city – and the downtown area has so much development going on. But it still has it’s traditional districts with majestic stone buildings, wide streets and so much green space.
I think this picture rather emphasises the style. A traffic cop on a bike, and he was incredibly helpful with directions on the best place to park!
I don’t think Canada will be appearing within our Chic portfolio anytime soon, but from a personal point of view, it does have so much going for it.
