I don't really mention my day job much on my blog, but today it's given me a reason for a whole post! I'm going to Canada for 6 nights in early February for my work, which is a pretty amazing opportunity. I've never been to Canada before, and it's quite short notice that I'm going, so I don't really have much time for researching or planning where to go and what to see, so I'm hoping someone might have a few tips for me.
As I said I'm going for work, but I think we will be seeing a bit of Toronto while we're there and may have a few free evenings and the weekend to take in a few touristy things. I think we'll be going to see Niagra Falls (I'm very scared of just how freezing cold and possibly wet that day trip might be) and possibly for dinner at the CN Tower, but other than that I'm not sure. Oh of course I'll be scoffing some pancakes with Canadian maple syrup!
We'll be staying fairly central at the Fairmont Royal York hotel and I've already sussed out that it's connected to miles and miles of underground shopping! Of course the first thing I did was locate a Sephora, and there seems to be one not too far from where I'll be at a mall called the Eaton Centre.
If any of you guys live in Toronto or have been there I'd love to hear any tips you have about where to eat and shop and things to do. I'm expecting to be able to buy a lot of the same products I look for when I'm in the USA, but I'm not sure. What's a good drugstore to visit in Toronto? Is there Walgreens or CVS or do they have something similar? Are any beauty brands particularly cheap to pick up in Canada?
Any tips will be a huge help! I'm hoping I might be able to do a good bit of shopping for some makeup, nail polish, candles and American / Canadian snacks. If the shopping is good I'm planning to pick up some bits for a giveaway too :)
Please leave me any tips you have in the comments. Thank you!
