It’s funny, I kept the most touristic thing to do in Toronto for last. Last weekend I went high up the CN Tower. We decided to go full out so we did the fancy dinner too. When Felix, Marianne, Jack & Jack, Dale and I arrived, we couldn’t see anything because of the fog. We entered when they told us there was zero visibility. So, we wouldn’t be able to get a nice view because of the fog but either way we booked so we went up. They weren’t lying, we couldn’t see anything.

It reminded me of that time in Italy. I climbed the Vesuvius but I couldn’t see anything either because of the fog. That aside, we stayed, we laughed, we chatted when suddenly the sky cleared up. We started to see more and more … I think we stayed there for almost 4 hours.


Foggy Cn tower

That’s how foggy it was when we arrived. For a second I thought we were going to cancel but I’m glad we didn’t because the view was breathtaking …


Nom nom fancy dinner

I really love Canada because they’re in the Christmas mood so early. They already had a Christmas menu so that’s what I took. I drank a little too much the night before so my stomach couldn’t really handle a glass of wine but for dessert there is ALWAYS room. It’s a fact, I’ll be able to float back to Belgium because of how much I ate here (Who cares, I got to eat a moelleux au chocolat).


Felix, marianne and me

This picture is actually more or less a fail haha. In the CN Tower there is glass on which you can stand and look down. We wanted to have a picture of us sitting on the glass while also showing people how high up we are but well yeah as you can see …


View by sunset




It was really breathtaking and I had a sad moment too. My sister texted me asking me whether I already started packing. It made me sad. I don’t want to pack, I don’t want to go back home? I’ve made friends here, started a life from scratch here. It’s crazy when you to think about. Leaving that life behind. I will see my friends I’ve made here again but we’ll never be here again in Toronto all together, going to Lou Dawgs or the Gaslight …  I’m trying my best to not be sad considering these are my last days but it’s quite hard 🙂 .

While I was looking at this breathtaking view, I just realized I’d never see it again. Or at least not in the near future. What I’ve experienced here, not many will understand. Nonetheless it has changed me and I couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you.
