The World Around Us

Map of Canada


Toronto in The Great White North has been our “base of operations” since we were married there in 2009. Every time we return the city, it has (or we have) changed a little.

Canada is known for being: the second-largest nation on earth, very cold, the best maker of maple syrup, very polite and multicultural. What we like is going around The Greater Toronto Area to see a bit of Canada’s thrilling and vast landscape. We’re particularly fond of camping / cottaging on Georgian Bay and hiking parts of The Bruce Trail.

This is a personal blog about living our life in Canada (when we’re not working abroad).
