Looking for something to do this week in Toronto? I find myself asking the same question every week and yet I always end up outside of the city. I’m shopping in Burlington, hiking around Brantford or going for dinner in Port Dover. According to my Toronto dwellers, I’m crazy and there is a whole lot to discover in this city. And yet my calendar speaks otherwise.
I moved to Toronto from Ottawa about a year and a half ago (yes that makes me a Sens fan). In Ottawa, I used to fill my spare time with impromptu coffees with friends, strolls in the quaint market, or long runs along the canal. Aimless walks would uncover random street fairs and dozen of museums.

Toronto’s another story. Now my life consists of the TTC and my apartment’s gorgeous view (Kramer Kenny Roaster flashback anybody?) I work too late, my friends are too busy and the city is just intimidating! When I think “Toronto,” I don’t think of culture, adventure and discovery. I think concrete, crowds and chaos. This is my last valiant effort to find the “where to go” and the “places to be.”
Every week, I hope to explore something new in the city. To find out what this city is really about. I hope to pick a few things at the beginning of the week and commit to doing at least one by the end of that week. This blog will be my record. My own personal catalogue of what Toronto is really about: the life, the culture, the events and the adventure.
Okay…that was a lot of text. Next time there will be a lot less of that (all those words up above) and more of this (the stuff below).
