365 Canadian Sights | Day 324: Toronto Week – Humber River Bicycle Pedestrian Bridge

Not every sight in Toronto is a renowned piece of architecture. Sometimes it’s a new piece of architecture. It’s not the biggest bridge in Toronto, but it’s gotta be the most attractive. Also called the Humber Arch Bridge, this span is right on the lakeshore, connecting both sides of the Humber River, giving those taking… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 324: Toronto Week – Humber River Bicycle Pedestrian Bridge

365 Canadian Sights | Day 323: Toronto Week – Casa Loma

The architecture from Toronto often leaves something to be desired, but this is leaves nothing. Casa Loma is sometimes referred to as a castle, though I’m hesitant to do so myself since it wasn’t made to withstand a battle like most traditional castles. However, just the fact that most people call it a castle tells… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 323: Toronto Week – Casa Loma

365 Canadian Sights | Day 321: Brockton and Hallelujah point

I know, I know, I already wrote about Vancouver skylines and Stanley Park before, but really it’s worth going back to. This time it’s a section of the park’s eastern end.

365 Canadian Sights | Day 316: Fisherman’s Cove

The Maritime’s roots in fishing and the ocean have been kept alive in this little community. Restored in the min-90s to a traditional (but cared for) state, Fisherman’s Cove is a little piece of Halifax’s heritage, with a boardwalk, docks and shops hanging on to the rocks and ever-changing tide. The structures on pilings and… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 316: Fisherman’s Cove

365 Canadian Sights | Day 315: Canadian National War Memorial

On today, the 100th anniversary of the Armistice signed at the end of WWI, it seems fitting to pay tribute to this sight. Easily one of the most important and impressive monuments in Canada, the statues and structure are full of symbolism. Greek gods top the monument, while bronze statues from the ‘Great War’ march… Read More 365 Canadian Sights | Day 315: Canadian National War Memorial
