Having just returned from a trip to Toronto, I have a few travel items I’ll mention:
Pashmina (or similar) shawl in black - or - a pattern that has colors that go with what you have packed. It serves as a nice wrap on your flight or is easy to wrap around one’s shoulders in a drafty restaurant or use for warmth as a scarf and head cover in a light rain.
Gloves. I had a pair along for touring Toronto and was the envy of my group in the mid-50’s weather.
My Orla Kiely backpack. www.orlakiely.com It has a timeless distinctive pattern on an oilcloth like surface - extremely durable, forgiving and stylish!
My iPad. (And a charger) I think it is self explanatory.
Toronto is a beautiful city to visit located on Lake Ontario. The flight is less than 2 hours. It takes almost that long to drive to Niagra Falls - a must see on the Canadian side! And there is a huge wine country area on your way to the Falls. The city and surrounding area has a population of 6 million people. Of interest is the fact that half of the people in Toronto were NOT born in Canada so it is a very diverse city with restaurants to match. A definite Favored Find!
