While driving towards Toronto I could never shake the feeling that I was arriving in some sort of mini New York. Downtown Toronto is an impressive and eclectic mix of sky scrapers and historical buildings. The streets were buzzing with people rushing to wherever they had to be in time. Luckily I also discovered a different side from the city via the locals. They showed me a more relaxed and artistic side of the city.
