Last Friday after work I began my little adventure to visit family in Canada.
I took a train to the city and explored around a bit before I headed to Port Authority for my bus ride to Toronto.
I chilled out, enjoyed some delicious macarons, and read some of my new obsession; Outlander ♡
My bus was overnight so I got to see this gorgeous sunrise in Buffalo, NY.
I was sitting next to this Sri Lankan man who ended up being very sweet. We shared stories of our countries and how we ended up here. Sometimes stranger isn’t always danger! It was lovely. But there is no way I would have ever met him if we weren’t on a 12 hour bus ride together. You know, stranger danger? 😛
After a few little naps I woke up in Toronto
The next part of the adventure was finding the subway station and taking the subway to Finch – where I was picked up by a wonderful family friend.
She took me past the South African store (there is a huge South African community here it is awesome). I almost cried I was so excited to see South African things. Ceres juices, biltong (not that I even eat it), cadbury, nestle, everything! Of course I had to get some treats. It’s my week off right? 😉
Fruit & Nut because it’s my favourite, white eggs because they’re a classic, and smarties mini eggs because SMARTIES MINI EGGS OKAY?! 😛
Canada has been amazing so far. Adventures with Aunty Linda include going to my first wedding shower, visiting her great niece’s grade two little event (which was absolutely adorable), an amazing yoga class (which is something I need to find time to get into regularly I loved it so much), and getting to spend quality family time.
Got some inspiration from kids brainstorming what makes them proud :’)
Loved having time to relax, snuggle up on the couch and chill out with my main man; Earl Grey.
I’m currently on a bus to Ottawa to visit some more special people:) Of course I left my new boyfriend (my book – Outlander) in my suitcase that is under the bus. So I’ll probably catch up with my blogging on the ride.
But Canada AY, you’ve been fantastic.
