This photo is a part of Nathan Philips Square, which is the big public square in front of Toronto City Hall. Pictured is a public skating rink that is free to use all winter. People without their own ice skates can rent a pair for a couple of hours to join the other skaters in turning laps around the rink. It’s a place where many new Canadians try out this popular winter pastime for the very first time!

Ski bums are fine practitioners of slow travel. They are neither the tourists who pass through for weekend getaways, nor the weathered locals who have seen a lifetime of winters. Somewhere in between, ski bums stop and stay long enough to make temporary lives for themselves in a town. Like Fernie, British Columbia.

Toronto, capital of the province of Ontario. It’s Canada’s largest city and one of North America’s greatest urban centres, despite which it has a well-deserved reputation for being a friendly, safe place that’s internationally regarded as progressive and forward thinking. Accordingly, its residents can lay claim to a number of citywide initiatives designed to promote environmental awareness, including a more ecologically friendly alternative to existing transport options: Eco Taxi.

When it comes to life’s simple pleasures, food definitely ranks near (if not at) the top of the list for most people. It’s probably fair to say that the way to a whole nation’s heart is through its stomach, so finding out what makes a country tick is often as simple as checking out what dishes regularly make it onto the dinner table. Thanks to the efforts of our local partners around the globe, we’ve assembled an extensive selection of typical local appetisers, soups and stews, main dishes, vegetarian dishes, desserts, drinks and snacks and street foods.

I recently received a call from a hotel concierge asking if I did tours of Toronto that cover famous locations used in film and television.
