Random Pictures from Canada #travel #sightseeing

Our first day we went walking in Bowmanville, my hometown and saw the old mill. Here are some different angles of the mill, which is now a shopping area.

I used boarding passes, train tickets, serviettes, packaging of things I bought and added the phrases me and my family were laughing about during the trip! Great memories!

Chinue, the cat was happy to see me come back! Here she is checking out my page! I think she approves!

Happy Travelling! xoxo!

Working on my Vision-board… 2018

e4339cc2a93e747769953bccf9fa5af0

Tinybuddha.com says it best! This is my inspiration for 2018.

I’m a bit behind working on my vision board for the year, but I have collected some images that sum up how I want the year to go. Mainly travel, since I’m not really into collecting things, I’d prefer memories by far!

I’ll share how it turns out once it’s finished!

What are your goals and dreams for 2018? Let’s make it the best year ever! 

Happy adventuring! xoxo! 

Food! Glorious Food! #Vegetarian #Vegan

This pretty much sums up my entire trip to Canada! All we did was eat from start to finish! Diet? What diet? lol

I can’t get over the variety and amazing food there is in all the local supermarkets! This is just a tiny portion of the store! #homesick

The vegan options are endless! Vegan sausages! Vegan egg! Veganaise! I’d have to travel to the end of the earth to get that here!

Vegan breakfast!…

The best thing for me is that the fruit and veggies actually taste of what they are, not some watered down chemically altered versions as everything is pretty much organic! #lovesit

DSCN0829

Of course I had to have poutine…

And Starbucks! My favourite coffee shop in the world! Look at how beautifully they decorated the coffees! Gold sparkles!

It was my mums birthday so we had homemade vegan chilli with rice, salad and Mexican dips! Beyond delicious! Check out the size of the strawberry on the cake we got at Metro! #yum

Of course we also had to try the local Vegan restaurant! We went three times in two weeks and it was beyond delicious! We can’t wait to go back! I’ll leave the link to their Trip Advisor site in case you’re in the Whitby area and are craving delicious Vegan food!

Here is the link to their Trip Advisor Page! Copper Branch Brooklin

So I hope you enjoyed my Ode to Food! It was amazing and I can’t wait to go back!

Happy Eating! 

 

 

Twilight in Toronto #travel

DSCN0901

Our one day in Toronto we walked around after leaving Union Station and just walked without a plan! There is so much to see so it didn’t really matter which way we walked!

DSCN0904

Of course we had to take a look at the CN-Tower! The #bucketlist item here will be to return and have dinner at the restaurant on top of the tower! I’ve had lunch and it was amazing!

DSCN0902

City life around the Rogers Center! For me it will forever be the Sky Dome!

I love seeing the lights coming on while the sun sets over the city! So many beautiful buildings!

DSCN0909

My partner loved the name of this restaurant so I had to take a picture as a memory! In the process a random guy in the street thought I was taking his picture and totally freaked out… dude, I just wanted a picture of the sign! Calm down! lol #calamity

Yonge street on the way back to the car! Always a view!

There’s nothing like city lights! Loves it!

Saks Fifth Avenue had the most amazing holiday display in their windows! A fashionable scene from a fairy-tale!

I can’t wait to go back!

Happy travelling! xoxo! 

 

 

Holiday Decor Everywhere!

DSCN0891

Food from heaven! If you are in Canada don’t miss out on the Snowflake Donut at Tim Hortons! It is amazing!

As it is the holiday season, there were decorations up all over Toronto. So I’ll share them with you since there isn’t much of a holiday vibe here in Spain.

Here is the Santa Castle in the Pickering Town Centre! If I had one wish I’d be back there right now! I hope Santa is listening! And a random sparkling deer!

The downtown area in Toronto was also full of lights and decorations! So beautiful!

DSCN0911DSCN0935DSCN0936

Holiday vibes all over!

The Eatons Centre was the most impressive with a massive light up tree in the centre of the mall!

DSCN0924

Loves it! It was so tall I couldn’t even get the top part in the shot!

It also had this cool deer halfway down the mall!

DSCN0925

Canadian Tire has the best holiday decorations! I am always so inspired when I see their displays!

DSCN0939

What a mood!

Check out these gorgeous baubles! All you need for a tree!

DSCN0938

Finally I found the tree section! My next tree will be colourful and pre-lit! The blue one is my favourite so far!

DSCN0937

Hope you’re having a great holiday season! I’ll slowly catch up on the trip pictures and throw in a few hauls as well!

Keep warm and happy holidays! xoxo!

Winter is here! Even in Spain! It’s gone down to 1 degree in the morning when I’ve taken Bob the Yorkie out! Freezing! So here is a collection of random cyber-finds and the links to their sites that have cheered me up and give me hope that 2018 will be a good year with less #calamity!

Since it’s been so cold I’ve been in the mood for some hearty food! Like this Vegan recipe! Looks delicious, so I’ll leave the link right here… Vegan Potato Mushroom Cakes My goal for 2018 is to become more vegan rather than less! I’m already vegetarian so it’s not a far stretch!

I’ve also been seeing white as a nail polish colour for the winter! Looks so glam! Whether the nail-polish advertised in the picture is any good, I don’t know! I just like the look! Snow by Hype Vegan Nailpolish
