Toronto Part 5

I love city trips but sometimes cramming everything into a few days is hard.
But at the same time you want to see as much as possible.
So to do that I like to do the bus tours.
You get to see lots of things without having to walk too much, plus you get a better idea of which places you’d like to spend more time in.

My hop on hop off bus ticket was valid for three days which was great as I didn’t have to rush everything.

I started my tour at the Distillery District with a liquid lunch smoothie (avocado, lemon, apple and carrot juice).

There are 120 vendors, merchants and artisans and fresh food as far as the eye can see.Toronto // L.AlexandraToronto // L.Alexandra Toronto // L.AlexandraToronto // L.Alexandra
For lunch I stopped by Buster’s Sea Cove.
Judging by the amount of people waiting, I assumed it was good.
They worked at lightning speed, I got dizzy just watching them.Toronto // L.AlexandraYou choose your meal, pay and get a number.
As soon as your number is called, you rush up and get your food.Toronto // L.AlexandraAnd as the weather was nice, I sat outside on the patio and had this delicious salmon with salad.Toronto // L.AlexandraBeing the tourist I am, I also had to visit the CN Tower.
I was lucky as there weren’t that many people going up and at the top it wasn’t very crowded either.
Toronto // L.AlexandraIt’s 553.33 m and for 34 years it held the record as the world’s tallest free-standing structure and the world’s tallest tower.
You get whisked up in ultra fast elevators and you’re greeted with stunning views of the city.

They use turboprop airplanes to minimise the noise for people living nearby.
