Going beyond (way beyond) the GDA

Every now and then, it’s good to move out of our routine in the Greater Daglan Area and head to other adventures. Especially when those adventures include meeting up with family and friends in the city where Jan and I spent virtually all of our working lives — Toronto.

Like so many of you, our international travel plans hit a brick wall a couple of years ago, as the Covid pandemic closed borders. So a major trip planned for September 2020 had to be cancelled, and our only travel for the next couple of years was within France.

In any case, we’ve now completed the major journey from Gourdon to Paris (by train) and then on to Toronto (by Air Transat plane), and back again. Over the next few days, I’ll be posting a few highlights of our trip — although, for reasons of privacy, I won’t be showing off the wonderful times spent with family (including children and grandchildren) and some of our closest friends.

I’ll begin with just a single photo, taken one evening by our good friend Elisabeth, who has a holiday home near our house in Daglan, and who visited Toronto with her husband Gerhard while we were there. (It was their first trip to North America, and we think they truly enjoyed it.) This photo shows the Toronto skyline at night, looking from the east across a large park to the city centre:

Toronto glistens at night.

      Hi Alix, Well, it was great seeing family — our two children and their partners, and our five grandchildren — and a lot of close friends, of course. And we did get to try some “old favourites” like Lai Wah Heen and Allen’s. But the city itself has gone bananas with condominium towers, all lined up to block the views of Lake Ontario. So really, we’re not missing the city at all.
