TONS MORE TORONTO

I am home from Canada now but I still would like to share my trip. School will be starting up again quite soon and so I must mentally prepare for the next four months. Honestly, I would not mind going back to Toronto. I am still not in a school mindset yet; I simply do not miss Richmond or fashion school. It has been nice doing my own thing! But alas, I will be packing once again soon. In the meantime, here is the rest of my time in Canada.

I wanted to start off with my hotel because it was lovely, first of all, also, the hallways gave me so much inspiration for photoshoots! We stayed at the Grand Hotel. I highly recommend if you are visiting Toronto; my family and I had a wonderful experience from the beautiful, outdoor breakfast area to the rooftop hot tubs. Oh, and did I mention the hallways?

Next, because of course I have to go to at least one museum, is the AGO(Art Gallery of Ontario). This museum was unique in it’s architecture as it had an entire wing devoted to resembling a viking boat!

I did not get too many pictures, but we visited Casa Loma. Casa Loma, above all else, had the most beautiful interior decor. It must be that wealthy flair I suppose!

My family and I went to the Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto simply because we has city passes that included them. As tourists from Baltimore, home of the exceptionally overpriced National Aquarium, we decided to take advantage of this deal. It was actually so fun because there was this one petting station where you put your hand into the tank and little shrimp come up to your hand and clean it. They were the same kind of shrimp as Jacques from Finding Nemo. I guess the storytellers at disney did their research because those shrimp really do have that same need to clean. So they were just tickling our hands trying to get all of the dirt out from under our fingernails!

We were on the hunt to find Kensington Market. It is everything one could ever hope for in a bohemian wonderland! And then, it is right next to Chinatown, where we got some amazing dumplings for dinner.

I thought I would also include some pics of the food we enjoyed. I was determined to find Uncle Tetsu’s shop that serves the most amazing Japanese cheesecake. It was so light and fluffy and how cheesecake should always be. Honestly now cheesecake is ruined for me because I reached the pinnacle of cheesecake and I can never go back!
