See Your Favourite City, My Way 

Having friends and lovers all around the world has culminated in a dynamic form of culture sharing that I never would have experienced if it weren't for my time as a companion. I know my Hogtown like the back of my hand — send me a geographical location and I can easily name some tried and true options for dining, drinking, and play.

In cities that I like to call my home away from home, I often arrive with a strong to do list and leave with a list that's completely different from what I arrived with. These are just a few of my favourite things. In alphabetical order because there is no one absolute favourite for me.
