In Toronto

Toronto is the biggest city of Canada with 2.7 million residents (9.2 for the urban area). It feels like a little New York, all the streets are busy and we find some funky neighbourhoods including Kensington and Queen Street West. The Distillery District is a pedestrian hipster area in what was an alcohol factory. Lucky us, we find there some good coffee at “Arvo”. The owner lived in Sydney, they even put an old map of Sydney on the wall, I felt a little homesick! Toronto is where the Australian Consulate is, allowing me to do some certified copies (for my superannuation claim) for a small fee of $71. On the waterfront we enjoy the sun but we can’t cross to the Toronto islands, they are closed to the public until further notice due to flooding. This would have been a great spot for a view on the skyline, instead we drive west to Humber Park to see the end the day with a beer and a view on the giant tower of the city. During those two days we saw a lot of dogs, Toronto is dubbed “the city that loves dogs”, a bonus point I think!
