This past weekend to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday my boyfriend and I embarked on a road trip up north to stay at my family’s cottage. Along the way we decided to stop at one of my favourite childhood ice cream spots – “Brainfreezz” which is located in this adorable old tiny town called Thornton . It’s a small little ice cream shop that runs out of an old house and it has been there for quite a while as I’ve been stopping there on summer day trips home from the cottage since I was about 8. They have some of the best ice cream flavours ever and the tastiest waffle cones! They also have amazing yogurt ice cream -which is what I ordered- and they allow you to choose either chocolate or vanilla frozen yogurt and mix it with two kinds of frozen fruit. I opted for vanilla frozen yogurt mixed with raspberries and blueberries in a waffle cone and it was incredible! My boyfriend ordered an ice cream flavour called raspberry cheesecake and he enjoyed it a lot as well.
I was going through my expansive photo library yesterday and I rediscovered a ton of photography I had taken on past vacations and trips. I decided to make a weekly thread where each Friday I’ll post a picture or two that I’ve taken from somewhere in the world.
This week, for my first Travel Photography Friday post, I’ve decided to feature some photos that I took on a trip to Aruba in April of 2015.
This little old chapel known as the Alto Vista was the first ever built in Aruba and is located in isolation amidst a desert landscape. The original church was built in the 1700s but this structure that stands there now was built in the 1950s. We had to rent ATV’s to reach this spot and it was an amazing experience.
A photo I took off the beach near where we were staying known as Eagle Beach. The waters were so clear and pristine and the sand was clean and well maintained. Definitely one of the best beaches I’ve ever been to.
This food appreciation post is for one of my favourite Korean restaurants in Toronto: Song Cook’s in the Thornhill area.
I always get the vegetable BiBimBap and it is absolutely amazing. The vegetables are so fresh and the food is very authentic. The seafood pancake is a must order starter dish and is very large making it perfect for sharing. I’m vegetarian so I can’t speak for the meat dishes but my dad and brother swear by the kalbi beef ribs with the brown rice.
I highly recommend Song Cook’s, it is the perfect Korean restaurant, the food is amazing, and the staff is very accommodating and even on the restaurants busiest days we’ve always been seated very quickly.
