I’m seriously loving the fact that I now officially have enough space on my blog to update all these way way waaaay long overdue posts. Yes, I’m literally talking about a post that should have been up on my blog like in August or September…and now it’s almost March. Wow.
Well, I guess better late than never right? Let’s just get straight into it. After our lovely stay in Ottawa, we headed over to Toronto and were joined by another one of my mom’s friends from junior college (this trip was partially a JC reunion for them…20 years later). First stop was the CN Tower, which is currently the world’s sixth tallest free-standing structure.
Quite interesting to see how subways in Canada differ so much from public transportation in cities like Taipei or New York.
Mother’s friends-one who just looks straight up confused and the other looks like she’s kind of having a good time.
Grand Central terminal vibes.
Ta-dah!! The beautiful CN Tower (I was practically sprawled out on the floor taking this picture).
Happy parents at the entrance of the CN Tower!
And the views and architecture are just amazing-the buildings, freeways, the ocean…
So on the top of the tower, they have a glass bottom floor (as if the height isn’t already terrifying enough), and you can sit, lie down, crawl around, or whatever else suits you, thousands of feet in the air above ground level. Don’t be fooled by my mom’s smile, she was actually terrified…hahaha.
If you’re extra daring, you can do a “skywalk” around the rim of the tower even higher up on the level we’re currently on.
Strolling around downtown…do the wide-brimmed hats give us away as tourists?
The city of Toronto is definitely something special-the mix of the tall skyscrapers, the metro, the fast-paced businessmen and businesswomen roaming the streets definitely give you the big city feel. More to come about the beautiful architecture of Toronto, so stay tuned!
