Short but sweet... and a little photo spam

Last week, we went to Toronto for a little four day family holiday. You know, I never gave Toronto enough credit... it is actually a really nice place to visit. Coming from Montreal, you are not really supposed to say stuff like that 😉but it really is nice. Most of my Toronto experiences in the past were work related so I had a very limited opinion of the city but I am so glad that we explored different neighbourhoods this time around. We wanted to go away for long enough for it to be a break from the day to day but still short enough for the boys to enjoy it.. and each other... and 4 days was perfect. Over the pandemic, all passports had expired, except for mine, so Canadian road trip it was!

I found a fantastic AirBnB home in the Leslieville area (see here). It was a full house on a really lovely, quiet street (I highly recommend it- see here for the listing. The owner was really nice too). It worked out so well because we were near the streetcars to downtown, tons of good restaurants, grocery stores, interesting architecture and an overall cool vibe. When the boys were younger, it was so much easier to find fun stuff that they liked to do. Heck, a park at the end of the street was awesome for them but, now, it is a bit more of a challenge. For activities, we decided on the Ripley's Aquarium, Kensington Market, a Blue Jays baseball game (Alexander and Nicka boycotted this one but, even as a non-baseball-fan, it was suprisingly fun), Niagara Falls, Niagara Whirlpool Aero Car, Inniskillin Winery (for me!), Niagara on the Lake and multiple food stops along the way😉 On the way home, we stopped in Kingston (see here), which was also really nice. 

Overall, great trip. I would actually really like to do this in the fall or early winter sometime and see what else Toronto has to offer... 

Now, here is the photo spam. You were warned 😉

The Bergdahl Boys



  1. Dejligt at komme hjemmefra, trods det er til en konkurrerende by, og dejligt du fandt ud af denne by kan byde på noget andet end det, der fik barometret til at vende nedad.
    Det at opleve med børn lige omkring skolealderen er en oplevelse, når de når pre teenage alderen sker der noget, kravene bliver stærkere, og som dine unge mennesker, boycutter en oplevelse.
    Vild med dine spambilleder, det er skønne øjebliksshoot. Tak for turen

    1. Tak Karin! It was nice to get away and spend time with the boys. We don't know how much longer they will all willingly come with us. Love to you!

  2. Jeg elser dine fotospams både her og på Instagram 😀 Tak

    1. Tak Catarina! I love to see yours as well! Hope you are having a great holiday xox
