Happy belated Canada Day! It’s been almost a month now since my travels to Toronto, and I can’t wait to go back. In my lifetime, this was my third vacation to Canada. First was to Vancouver. Second to Niagara Falls. Lastly, Toronto. Canada is the second largest country in the world, so even with three trips to three cities, there is still so much to explore. Next will be Montreal and Quebec City!
Toronto was unlike any city I have been to. I kept trying to compare it to New York, LA, Washington DC, but it was just incredibly unique. The architecture was new and modern. It was green and lush around every corner. It was clean, smelled amazing, and was well taken care of. Toronto has a streetcar system and a subway (both of which I was able to get around on). What I loved the most about this city was that the suburbs were less than 20 minutes away by subway, and those quaint neighborhoods were full of brick houses, basements, and freshly mowed lawns.
The weather this time of year was just like Orange County. High’s in the 70’s, lows in the 60’s, (hardly any humidity, no rain) so packing was surprisingly easy. While I live in dresses all summer, I wanted a pair of linen pants that were lightweight to keep me cool, but also keep my legs from getting sun burnt! This pair is from Old Navy for under $20. Because I wanted to show off the draw string in the pants, I needed a blouse that could easily be tucked in. I found this suspended-neck tank to match! Lastly, I packed one easy jacket that could match with all my outfits, and that was this cargo jacket by Madewell. The colors remained neutral which made coordinating outfits simple!
“But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion…”
Traveling is a journey from beginning to end, and the people you meet along the way help define that memory. Every person I met on this trip was a friendly Canadian! No surprise there, aye? Whether we are the travelers, or embracing the traveled here in America, we need to show compassion for others. The world is one under God, so be a light where ever your path may lead you!
Have a blessed week!
