So, we agreed that this summer we were going to go explore. To see new sites, visit new restaurants, go to museums, and festivals and events. We want to experience new cultures, discover new destination spots, and just actually learn what Toronto really is all about. Plus it’ll keep my blogging interesting! Thus, the creation of a summer bucket list was created. My vision right now is that it’ll be a group effort to accomplish everything on this list. Obviously not everyone can attend every event as we all have different personal tastes and other commitments during the weekends this summer. However, I figure as long as a couple of people are able to check things off, it’ll count for the whole group. As long as they share what they saw, and take a picture to commemorate the event!
We are going to throw in a mix of totally new places, as well as obvious destination spots just because things like going to a Blue Jays game is fun! I’m super excited about this idea because it’ll make this summer during the weekends always an adventure, I’ll really learn about Toronto, and it’ll give me something to really blog about!
