Sometimes there is a desire to return to the past. People name this feeling as nostalgia and most of them describe that feeling like missing the place. I think it is not about the place it is about the time. Geographically we can come back to any place we like, however, there is no way to come back in time. Even when you come back to some place most of the times you cannot find whatever you missed and whatever you would like to feel. Whatever has gone, gone forever.
We like to visit places where we lived before and had wonderful time. We used to live in many places, in few countries, met many wonderful people, made a lot of friends, and enjoyed our life as much as we can. To visit old places do not hurt us a lot. It warms up our souls and recall unforgettable memories. It keeps our mind and hearts young (smiling here, I wish 🙂 ).
Swansea is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto. We lived there for three years and like to come back just to walk around, to breath the air, to see how time changes the place.
The White Bridge over the Humber River is one of the attraction we love to visit there.
When the Sky is blue and Sun is full, nothing to watch up there. But when the Sky is cloudy and dramatic you can observe it to the end. Long time ago by the happy childhood summer, it was the best hobby to observe the clouds.
The Highway itself is just a huge pathway which is not really different of numerous highways around the World. However, here in Toronto it is important transport artery, and difficult to imagine the city without it. In the hidden place near the Lake Ontario one can find the memorabilia of this important infrastructural facility.
I love to visit Toronto early Sunday Morning. The most comfortable time to be there because of cool air, empty streets, and absolutely no crowd. It is good time for walking around downtown and enjoy the quiet city life. On Sunday all the shops are closed till noon, only some cafes and restaurants which serve breakfast are opened. This is why there are not many people on the streets. Closer to noon the city is filling up by the people and looks like an anthill, then it is time to leave it.
Unforgettable event in Toronto take place even in our pandemic time with some restrictions. During the lock down it’s not working but when it is possible the organizers of this lovely event make it open to public.
It is absolutely amazing attraction. All of Van Gogh painting coming on the Walls of the huge hall following by nice classical music. All that creates the feeling to be right inside of the painting scene.
Here you can find yourself at Café Terrace at Night.
Or you can see yourself in the Sunflowers field.
Suddenly, you are at the Windmills near Zaandam.
Then you are among the Potato Eaters. It is really special journey, and to leave it takes efforts.
To see more pictures of this wonderful attraction go to gallery and follow by the arrow to walk through the magic world of Van Gogh.
The beginning of November treats Toronto and its people with the nice, almost summer weather. High Park in the morning is just right place to enjoy this kind of days. There are still a lot of autumn colours around.
Toronto. Saturday. Noon. Sunny day. Emptiness. Hard to imagine the city like that. Usually the life is boiling in downtown on Saturday. Now it looks like a dead city. Hopefully it is not going to last long and everything will come back to normal. I believe!
