Toronto: What to Eat, from Margaritas to Maple Bacon and More

When I first started traveling, my trips usually centered around sightseeing; I had to make sure to check off every major museum and monument each time I visited a new city.

We based ourselves in Old Town, which was exactly where I wanted to be. The thing that first drew me to Montreal was … More Montreal: Old Town Charm, Riverside Promenades, and One Very Adventurous Boat Ride
