There I am…back from what feels like several months and not 3 weeks of traveling- LOL. I did so many different things in different places that the feeling makes sense ;) First on the list was Canada Toronto – Sightseeing, Meeting Friends, Teaching Workshops, then off to the U.S. for CHA, Meeting Friends and then to New Jersey for Family, Friends and Taking Workshops :)
And you know I love to share my photos, thoughts and experiences from my travels- so I will dedicate several posts to this past journey ;)
so my frist stop was Toronto – where I was picked up by my wonderful friend Bettina who also owns myStamp Box . We had lot’s of fun- and she and her family made my stay so sweet and wonderful! Thank you!!! Here is Bettina showing off that she was driving around the whole time during the European Soccer Championship with the German flag (she is German too)…oh brother- LOL
We did some fun sightseeing – and I have to say I love Toronto. I had no real picture in my head, although I heard before that it is a beautiful city- and I loved it a lot. It had a European but still huge North American City flair, lot’s of green, cute houses and very clean (I know it is strange to think that…but yes…that was my impression ;) )
We went to this really cool area called Distillery District. I loved the brick buildings- I want to own one :)
I love old cars- this one was standing around
Lot’s of fun stores there too
We took the ferry to Center Island- wonderful there and spent a couple of hours walking on the island enjoying the weather and coolness on the lake.
Loved those on the wall of a fun cafe in Bettina’s neighborhood
Barb and Toni are the coolest and warm-hearted store owners ever …but that I will talk about in a different post about Canada :)
The view from the CN Tower was amazing and worth the wait.
I was also introduced to the Canadian dish Poutine. Very yummy and very unhealthy- LOL. Somehow it is always that way, right?
We did walk a lot and it was HOT – and I mean HOT with a huge humidity…wow…and I liked it ;) I am a summer person- I do miss real summers in Hamburg.
I will show the pictures of the workshops and talk more about the trip soon.
What was your latest trip and which kind of food did you get to know there?
Have a gorgeous day
