Last weekend, I got the chance to see the beautiful city of Toronto. The trip was very special to me because of so many things. First, this was a treat for myself lol. My friends know how tired I’ve been these past few weeks because of my messed up schedule at work and in school. So I guess, I just needed a breather. Also, this was my first solo trip. I was supposed to watch a concert of my favourite indie band but I ran out of tickets. Third, I visited a relative there and fourth, I just really wanna travel! Toronto is indeed far from Edmonton. Haha I get it but a four hour plane ride won’t hurt! #hugot
After we landed, I immediately went to the apartment I rented through Airbnb which was located at Queen St. West, also called as the Art and Design District. The place was very cheap and very artsy! I love it.
Just my luck, it was also a great weekend in the city as they were celebrating Nuit Blanche. It’s a night event from 7PM-7AM wherein art exhibits are all over the city. So I was at the hippest part of Toronto and art exhibits were everywhere. Can you imagine how stoked I was during that time? So basically, I spent my first night in Toronto, art gallery hopping and walking around the city.
I was looking for a restaurant open at 1AM. Haha very Filipina! But all I saw were drunk kids so I went to Tim Hortons instead. I wanted to go clubbing as well but I just can’t do “me time” in a club. Haha I need friends! The entrance to all galleries were free so I didn’t spent a lot except for my food. Can’t wait to share with you my second and third day in the city!
