High / Low – November 10, 2016

The last couple of weeks have found us focused on two main things – delicious food and too much politics (sometimes, at the same time). Going forward, we don’t plan to spend much more time talking about the US election, but hopefully we can get around to writing about some of the spectacular meals we’ve had – mainly because, in our experience, when you are new to Toronto, it’s hard to know where to go to find quality, but not fine dining, food.

High / Low – October 27, 2016

It has been a relatively quiet couple of weeks as Cindy finally knuckled down to do a little bit of study in preparation for her Canadian Administrative Law exam. That said, we still managed to squeeze in a few fun things.

And this week saw another couple of visitors from Canberra, stopping by Toronto while on their own North American adventure. It was great to catch up, laugh over our ‘lost in translation‘ moments, and just hear the familiar Aussie accent. As always, we also enjoyed tonnes of great food (including a delicious care package from home) and watched plenty of sport. Read on to find out what made our High / Low.

Having made a pretty good dent in the NYC tourist attraction list when we visited in January 2015, this trip was all about catching up with a fellow Aussie expat over all the food and drink we could handle.  Here are some of the highlights: Continue reading
