I’ve been wanting to visit Canada ever since I moved to Chicagoland three years ago. Which is weird, because I grew up making fun of the Canadians I knew, telling dumb jokes about hockey and polar bears, and otherwise forgetting there was a country up there.
At some point, though, I caught onto the fact there’s some pretty cool stuff happening north of Niagara. Subsequently, I jumped at the chance to take a spontaneous road trip to Toronto with two friends last weekend.
I was not disappointed. We stayed with the lead singer of this band and his wife, tried to master a Canadian accent, ate bacon poutine, wandered around the city and of course took in lots of street style. Kensington Market was understandably a hotspot for the city’s hip, with plenty of vintage shops and magnificent street art. We enjoyed eating curry and Moroccan stew while people-watching through the large windows of a vegetarian eatery called Urban Herbivore, and my camera got in on the action. These are some of my favorite shots of the day. Enjoy!
