My daughter and I planned a trip to Toronto,Ontario for a “just the girls” trip before she settled into college.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t in the greatest mood as we rode in the rain from Toronto Pearson International Airport to our destination that was located in the downtown section of the city, the Windsor Arms Hotel. This was to be a special trip for my daughter and myself so I had bought fairly expensive nonstop Air Canada tickets to give us more time to enjoy the city. But instead, we ended up waiting for over an hour at the baggage claim area to finally find out that our bags had been taken off the plane before takeoff because of weight considerations.
Last Monday, my friend M celebrated her 24th birthday at the Windsor Arms Hotel for High-Tea. We attended the Traditional Afternoon Tea and it was a great way to celebrate her birthday, as well as to catch-up and have long, flowing conversations. I find that at this day & age, it's very rare to get a group of friends together & actually have a conversation. It's become the norm to hang out with human beings but stay attached on your phone (I'm guilty of this too!).
Driving in downtown Toronto can be a challenge. The traffic patterns are horrible. But, the Yorkville/Cumberland/Bloor district of Toronto is as trendy and upscale as any trendy area of Los Angeles or New York City. With top named stores such as Louis Vuitton, Holt Renfrew, Cartier, and Tiffany, ‘the’ district is a shopper’s dream! Today I was treated to High Tea at the Windsor Arms Hotel in this beautiful area of downtown Toronto.
