Toronto.

Over the weekend I visited my best friend’s hometown for Halloween. It was my first time ever going to Toronto which was very exciting for me. I have never been, so I was beyond excited to check out how different it is from Vancouver. Let me say I did have some ‘what the heck’ moments. Firstly, I felt like I was in full house. The way the houses are designed and how close they had together shocked me. Secondly, BAGGED MILK. That is all I have to say. I have never in my entire life seen bagged milk. Lastly, you cannot park on the street if you live in Markham. You can get a ticket for parking your car on the street, your driveway can only fit how many cars you can have. Which was insane to me.

We checked out a few places which was new to me. First stop was heading downtown from the suburbs. They have these fancy trains, called GoTrains. I was so excited to get on it because I have never been on something like that here. I was having an absolute blast. We got off at Union Station which dropped us off at the heart of downtown Toronto. We walked to the Eaton centre as our first location, we were trying to find last minute costumes. This mall is massive. When you enter it and walk all the way to the opposite end, you end up at Younge and Dundas Street. This street felt like I was in New York.

The next place we checked out was Mr. Puffs, it was the dessert place. It was delicious. It was ball donuts but light, fluffy, and chewy. You can put sauces on top of it, I got the chocolate Bueno and cinnamon and sugar flavours. It was an amazing stop on the trip since we do not have it in here Vancouver. I did enjoy trying something new especially since it included sweet food.

The next stop on the trip was a college basketball game, that was the main reason why we came all the way to Toronto. It was Seneca vs George Brown basketball game. My best friend’s boyfriend was on the Seneca team. It was his last first game. It wasn’t as different as a basketball game here but just how united people were when cheering was different for me. There were people screaming from every end of the gym cheering each team on.

The last place I would say that was cool we went to was Number 3 Club. The night life is very different down there. You need a table to get into the club without a table you will not get in right away. People wait hours to get into the club which is super weird. Since it was just me and some girls, we got in without an issue but if you are a male the possibilities are low without a club. I did have a good time; people are super friendly down there. This club specifically did not have a dance floor which is odd but that is why you need a booth.

Seattle.

I had a weekend trip down to Seattle for the Luke Combs concert. It was my first time heading down there, I have only driven through Seattle but never stopped in the city. I was super excited because I was getting to see my favourite country artist. The road trip to Seattle was about 2 hours from Vancouver.

The first stop on our road trip was Dutch Bros! I have been wanting to try this coffee shop out for months. I tried the Golden Eagle non-blended and WOW! I understand the hype around it, it was sweet and delicious.

The next stop on our trip was Chick-fil-A, I have had it before that’s why I needed to visit again. It sucks that we do not have it in Vancouver but when I can get my hands on it, I do. I got the chicken sandwich with waffle fries and Chick-fil-A dipping sauce. I do not know what they put in that sauce, but it is addictive. I can literally drink the sauce because it is so good with chicken or anything you pair it with. At this point we have got into downtown Seattle and needed to check in to our hotel.

Our hotel was in central downtown which was nice because me and my mom were planning on walking everywhere. It really looked like downtown Vancouver because of all the tall buildings which was nice. At this point we are starving and wanting to get something to eat after freshening up. We got on our walking shoes and began walking around, trying to look for food but we ended up at an Italian restaurant. Which was not amazing, but I was hungry and needed to eat.

The next day was concert day! I was beyond excited to see Luke Combs, I was just excited to see how concerts were in another country. The concert was at the Lumen Field and let me tell you this arena was massive. It usually holds football games, but I was surprised Luke Combs sold out at this city. You know how they say everything is bigger in the United States well let me confirm it is. I bought a cooler which was the size of my head. It was massive but it was crazy to me that it was only 5%. The concert was amazing, I sang my heart out and spent 100$ USD on an uber back to the hotel. The next morning, we went for breakfast at a French café than went to Pikes Place Market. It was a very cute market, but I think Granville Island market is a lot better. After we checked out the city we headed back home.
