***ANNOUNCEMENT: Sunday’s Special Spot will be have its final posting at the end of October 2014. As my departure day approaches I aim to write about my plans and after that I will post of where in the world I am***
Today’s destination is the second stop on my RTW trip. I will depart my home town of Thunder Bay to Ontario’s capital city of Toronto. It has been years since I have been to Canada’s largest city. My only touchdowns there as of late have been stopovers at Pearson International Airport. This time I will return to visit friends in the area and re-acquaint myself with this thriving metropolis (led by its infamous mayor, Rob Ford).
Toronto has much to offer – major league sports, first class shopping, mouthwatering dining options, arts and culture – well, the list goes on and on. My past travels have taken me to the top of the CN Tower (at one time it was the world’s tallest freestanding structure), watching a Toronto Blue Jays baseball game at The Skydome (now know as Rogers Centre) to shopping and mouthwatering dining experiences. My next sojourn to this fun city will be mainly to catch up with some old friends, though I do hope I can take in some fun activities. Perhaps going to the Toronto Islands or checking the Bata Shoe Museum or the Hockey Hall of Fame. Maybe I will check out the extensive music scene while enjoying a craft beer. How about theatre productions? Or visit North America’s only Castle, Casa Loma. And then there is the food – Korean, Italian, Japanese, Indian, Fusion, BBQ, Spanish, Food Truck specialties, Vegetarian delights….okay now I’m hungry! Regardless of what I do, I know I will have fun and enjoy this very cool Canadian city!
