The first time I stepped foot in the City of Montréal, I was in love. With an amalgamation of modernity from North America and Old-World charm from Europe, Montréal is the place to be. Dubbed as Canada’s very own Europe, the cosmopolitan city makes you feel as if you have travelled thousands of miles and landed in Paris. Filled with vibrant colours, rich culture, amazing food, and friendly people, the city provides a great deal of places to eat, drink, and sightsee.

Day three of our London adventure, we were given an option to visit different places the city had to offer. The options included going to Abbey Road and 221B Baker Street, boarding the Belfast warship, or visiting Westminster Abbey and the scale heights of the Tower Bridge.

The following morning after our adventure at Vimy, Yprés, and Lille, we drove to Calais to board the ferry to Dover. It was a very exciting but busy morning, as we had to pass through customs and unload the bus with all of our luggages. Aside from the excitement of going to England, it was also a sad morning as we had to say goodbye to one of the most talented bus drivers we’ve ever had on the trip.
Customs ran smoothly and every one was ready to board the ferry to Dover. There was a wait but when the time came, the excitement grew. This was my first time on an actual Continue reading “CANTERBURY, ENGLAND”
Toronto. 416. The 6. The city that never sleeps and home of the 6 God, Drake. Although I only live four hours away – three and a half if you go a buck nineteen – Toronto still puts me in awe every time I visit. Sometimes I wish my mom agreed to move back to Toronto with my dad, but four hours away doesn’t hurt. Through the hustle and bustle of the busy city, there are countless of things to do. In this post, I will be sharing my Insider’s Guide to Toronto. Continue reading “INSIDER’S GUIDE TO TORONTO”
