Canada is where I call home.

I was born in Toronto, I live in Toronto, I work in Toronto and I party in Toronto.

I bleed blue for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Red for the Raptors and Toronto FC.

As much as I love travelling to other countries, I make a conscious effort to include my city, my province (Ontario) and my country in all my travels.


  • The history of Canada covers the period from the arrival of Paleo-Indians thousands of years ago to the present day.
  • Canada became the fourth country in the world and the first country in the Americas to legalize same-sex marriage
  • On October 17, 2018 Canada became the second nation (after Uruguay) to legalize marijuana.


2 Days In Ottawa Itinerary: Things To Do In 48 Hours

Largest City

The Ultimate 48 Hour Toronto Itinerary

Official Language

English, French


The Canadian dollar (symbol: $; code: CAD; French: dollar Canadian) is the currency of Canada.


Canadian cuisine varies widely as the country is so culturally diverse. The most common traditional Canadian dishes are poutine (tasty dish consists of french fries and cheese curds topped with light-brown gravy), Back Bacon and Maple Syrup.

Check, Check & Check – I love all three 🙂


Power plugs and sockets are of type A and B. The standard voltage is 120 V and the standard frequency is 60 Hz.

Public Transit

In Toronto, the public transportation service is called the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). In Montreal, the public transportation authority is called the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). The “GO train ” is the most used railway system in the southern part of the province of Ontario. VIA Rail will take you across the country.


Canadians drive on the right-hand side of the road and speed limits are posted in metric units. Everyone in the car has to wear a seatbelt and mobile devices must be used in “hands-free” mode when driving. 

Please note that Montreal is the only city in Canada that does not allow right-hand turns on a red light – they always need to be different those Montrealers. Sheesh. 

Stopover or Layover Destinations

Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver


Violent crime in Canada is low and almost non-existent in popular holiday spots and ski resorts. As with any popular nightlife area, fights and shooting can happen but very infrequent.
