Being a tourist today.

I think the early morning sun had fueled my inner adventurer to screw a couple hours of sleep and go out to chase my dreams. Little exaggeration, I had been wanting to go to the farmers market at St. Lawrence market. It’s usually up and running by 5AM but I wasn’t that adventurous. I got dressed grabbed my camera, got a cup of coffee, and street car-ed my way to St. Lawrence Market. I was mesmerized by the plethora of scents and aromas as soon as I entered this mega structure. I did not expect the amount of people, the … Continue reading Being a tourist today.

Its not everyday I wake up this early…

It’s like a whole different world exists at the rise of morning. Exactly that happened today when I happened to wake up early, only to find out the a majority of the roads were closed down. Quite confused, I stepped into the balcony, and scoured social media to piece the puzzle. Realized, a huge 10K harbor front marathon was taking place early on in the morning. I smile to myself and at thought, summer has officially started. I popped into the balcony to soak in the early morning rays and shortly after, noticed a herd of runners, stomping across University Avenue to … Continue reading Its not everyday I wake up this early…

Nostalgic

I knew there was something about this place that reminded me of home. This cup of liquid gold, was nothing short of 300 ml of nostalgia. It took me right back to a little tea shop in the bustling streets of Dar. I went in with a blank mind expecting a usual cup of tea but, I was fueled with excitement to know my desire for a cup of comforting, home tea had been gratified. From a warm, welcoming smile, to a conversation that led to a magnificent coincidence, it was exactly what I needed to brighten up an a sunny summer’s day. It’s one of those … Continue reading Nostalgic

Couple years down the road.

I don’t know why but I always end up posting a picture of the city hall. Maybe it’s the closest ‘touristy thing’ to me or there’s something happening every day. But, this place is quite significant for me. It was at this time last year, that many things happened for the first time; my first Christmas in Canada, first Cavalcade of Lights show, the first snow of the season, first of my blog’s pictures, first time meeting new people. So it’s fair to say it has been a crazy year, which is almost at an end but it has been … Continue reading Couple years down the road.
