It’s a funny business this world of travel blogging. Although I’m interacting and ‘meeting’ new people all the time, it can be a lonely endeavor. I spend hours and hours sitting behind my computer working … Continue reading For The Love of Toronto Travel Massive
There’s a sense of freedom that comes with cycling that you can’t find with any other form of transportation. I still remember when I first learned to ride a bicycle. I felt like I could … Continue reading Video: Top 5 Bicycle Trails in Toronto
One of the best things about living in Toronto is that the city gets to experience all 4 seasons. They’re fairly even in length, though most Torontonians will likely complain that our winters are too long and our summers are too short. There may be some truth in that.
While I love summer and could easily get used to 20+ degree weather year-round, my favourite season is actually fall. I love the crispness in the air, throwing on a light jacket and scarf, preparing more soups and stews in the kitchen, cocooning myself under my duvet, and going apple picking. But what I look forward to most about fall is the performance mother nature puts on as the trees begin to loose their leaves.

Over the past few years, the craft beer scene in Toronto has exploded. Just take a walk through the beer aisles at the LCBO and you’ll see how much shelf-space is dedicated to craft beer. As more and more beer lovers actively seek out unique brews for their individual palates, the industry is responding. And responding in amazing fashion.
One of the first truly craft breweries in Toronto is Amsterdam Brewery. Since 1986, they’ve been part of the revolution we see in the beer scene today. Using only traditional brewing methods, their beers are brewed fresh daily and include 6 year-round brews and a variety of seasonal offerings. In 2013, Amsterdam Brewery opened a new brew house right on the water’s edge of Lake Ontario. Merging the food and beer experience under one roof, it’s one of the best spots in the city to sit back with some friends on a hot summer’s day.
This summer, Amsterdam Brewery has partnered up with Toronto’s premier walking tour experience company, Tour Guys, for a series of “Neighbeerhood Crawls”. Part pub-crawl, part walking-tour, it’s an immersive experience for guests that incorporates Amsterdam beers, great local bars, delicious local food, graffiti sightseeing and historical revelations.

I arrived at the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada around 6pm on a Friday feeling exhausted from the week. I was gassed from a busier than usual week at work, and side projects and events every … Continue reading Video: Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada
