Jetlag-Toronto Part 1

jet lag also jet·lag


A temporary disruption of bodily rhythms caused by high-speed travel across several time zones typically in a jet aircraft.

It's been 4 nights since I left London and I already feel like a weight has been lifted. Toronto is like no other city I have visited. I have never felt so welcome by strangers and eaten so much good! I arrived to Toronto in the afternoon, I caught the coach into the city where my friend Alex from London met me. We made our way to my hostel, the Canadian inn! I had a private room which was nice. The staff here are lovely, I have to admit I did feel like I was back at school on camp but that's hostel life huh?

My first day was a bit of a blur, there was so much to see and so much to take in. We walked around the city taking in the sights and smells, the cn tower was seen from every turn we made. Alex brought me to a little tucked away burrito shop called bandidos, I have to admit this vegetarian burrito was the best I had ever had! The night ended at sneaky dees a trendy little bar/restaurant that sells the best nachos and Long Island ice teas I have ever had! The night how ever ended for me at about 9/10pm where I was jet lagged beyond words.. Morning breakfast was at fresh, a lovely vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the heart of Toronto. 

The following days were spent taking in, roaming around trinity Bellwood's park with cider people watching (beautiful park, highly recommend visiting!), Kensington markets and daily sense appeal coffee (best coffee) riding of the front of Lewis's bike. I saw old friends and made new friends. I went up the Novotel lift to the top with the boys as a free alternative to the CN tower for city skyline views. Alex took me to try Poutine for the first time, it was amazing! A dream of a few days.
