This summer marks my first Canadian summer in the last 3 years, and while being hit by a smouldering July heatwave is perpetually exhausting, I can say it feels nice to be back on home turf. Canadian summers are wonderful. Inevitably sunny, always sticky, constantly in a state of being that little bit sunburnt. You go outside and you really don't want to be wearing any clothes, but society rules govern, ya know?
But I also forgot how peaceful they can be, particularly in the mornings and evenings when the temperature isn't as sinister as the midday sauna. You can go for a walk or run before everyone wakes up, and it's oddly quiet. Even in the busy city of Toronto.
This month, my boyfriend is visiting from Denmark, and we're staying in Toronto where I'll be playing tour guide. It's always nice to have a new set of eyes to see your city with, and frankly, I need it. Since moving back, I've found it hard to appreciate Toronto the way I did before I ever moved away. Which is why I've decided that this next theme will be dedicated to my stomping ground, the biggest Canadian city, Toronto.
I'll be rediscovering the city, finding new things, but also reigniting my love for it. I see so many flaws, but all in all, Toronto is a pretty standout city.
Stay tuned for the tour. :)
