Views of my World #2 Canada – Toronto

As a wanderlust I love exploring and going on random adventures. The desire and experience to travel is embedded in me. Whether it is going to well known places or finding hidden gems, either at home or in another country the thrill remains the same. Call me a “tourists at home!” 

Thus the formation of my new blog series Views of My World, which will include images and short content of the world around me through my lens.
