From time to time, I get to travel for work and lucky for me, this one was international! Well, it was Canada. But still, international! I also lucked out with Joel being able to come along which always makes for a more interesting work trip.
We had a short visit, but packed full nonetheless. We arrived late at night and what better way to start a work trip than with drinking? So, we made our way to the new Hazelton Hotel, designed by Yabu Pushelberg. It was as hip as Canada can get but still not up to my NY standards. The drinks were pricey but made well, and the bar did feature an amazing cheese plate which included only Canadian cheeses. I got it and was happy I did — every cheese was fantastic — I only wish the US would import some of them!
After many hours of work at the Yorkdale Tiffany & Co, I made my way back to the city centre to meet Joel. We headed to the subway (which was very easy to navigate and clean). We took a train about half way to the water, got out and walked through the city. Toronto was very similar to Chicago bit with a hint of ‘international’. After a short walk, we ended up at the CN Tower — the worlds tallest building. Not being a fan of heights, we made almost made it up to the top level, but not quite. Where we did venture to had amazing views of the city, we could almost see Niagra Falls!
The final day was spent working at the Bloor St. Tiffany & Co, and traveling. A short trip, but a fun ‘international’ experience.
