When I'm not out exploring the world, I am at home exploring the amazing city that I live in. Still being a relatively new resident of Toronto, I don't find it hard to come across new places to check out. When you hear the word "Toronto", one immediately thinks loads of people, horrific traffic, the hustle and bustle that comes with a booming metropolis. But there is so much more to Toronto than these typical stereotypes. There are countless places to escape the busy life of a Torontonian, right here in the city - and if you don't slow down to look, you may just miss them! From hidden beaches, lush ravine trails, and many parks to explore, you won't have to look very far to find some peace and nature in this busy city I call home.
Now, living in Canada can be frustrating at times- mostly during the winter months. It’s hard to want to brave the cold, the snow, the wind and ice, and to head outdoors to get some fresh air. But, there is hope! Right here in my city is a place where you can escape the horrible Canadian winter and feel like you are on a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific. That place, my friends, is Allan Gardens Conservatory. Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, it is an indoor botanical garden that features six greenhouses. From palms to orchids to cacti, this place has it all! It’s an amazing spot for horticultural enthusiasts, photographers, or for anyone who wants to take a break from the winter and pretend for a few hours that they are far, far away. Since discovering it, I have been three times and each time there has been something new to see or a different angle to snap a cool shot from. It will definitely become a spot that I’ll visit often to forget how hectic life can be at times, and relish the small things.
