At first I wasn’t a fan of this huge city. To crowded, dirty, chaotic and I think the contrast to the Algonquin Provincial Park enhanced that feeling even more. But after exploring the waterfront and Toronto at night I started to really like and enjoy this city. I wouldn’t want to live here as I left Berlin behind, I feel like I need some quieter cities right now. But I can see why lots of people enjoy it 😉
Definetly more my thing at night because of all the beautiful lights. Since the city center is build high it is not as widely spread so you can walk it all easily in one day.
Perfect for second hand and alternative shopping or like I did to take photos of these cute buildings 🙂 Btw. China Town is just around the corner to grab some great food.
The big city skyline at the one side and the Lake Ontario at the other side. It feels like being on vacation and since I went during the week I was almost by myself and really enjoyed. I walked almost all the water front split in two days because I liked it that much.
Water, beach, sun, not too many people, cute houses, great view across the lake as well as the city. I was in heaven. For sunset I even met some nice guys working at a surf, kayak and canoe place and they invited me to join them for burgers on a bonfire. We talked in a mix of English, German and Spanish and I had lots of fun. It was an awesome night with the skyline as a background. This is what I like about exploring, you’ll never know who you’ll bump into and should be spontaneous to enjoy such opportunities.
Squirrels all over
A lady in the high park saw that I was taking photos and gave me a hand full of peanuts and told me “If you want to photograph squirrels just take these and wait” – She was right XD Click on the pictures to enlarge:
Not just in the so called Graffiti Street but all over the city you’ll find lots of street art. You just have to open your eyes and pay attention 🙂 Click on the pictures to enlarge:
