Curious as a Cat…

This Monday meme comes from Curious as a Cat

Here are the questions:

1) Share your latest book recommendation.

2) What travel lessons have you learned the hard way?

3) What’s the best bumper sticker you’ve ever seen?

4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

Tamie takes U on the Gabriel’s Inferno Tour…

On my recent trip to Toronto one of the things on my itinerary was to visit some of the places in Gabriel’s Inferno. A GI tour if you will. I’m happy to say that I did just that and had a lot of fun. Sadly, not all of the places in the book still exist, but there are enough of them to keep a certified GI fan happy and busily exploring for a full day. To be honest it would be better to undertake the tour over a couple of days if you’re like me and want to really explore the different places in detail and not just as a quick stop to say…been there…seen it.

I started my day at Union Station as I was traveling in from Whitby on the GO train. Thank heavens the majority of the places I wanted to visit are all very centrally located and are easy to reach by subway and walking. I encourage you all to wear comfortable shoes when you do your own tour…even tho I was sorely tempted to wear a pair of heels…you know…in case I just happened to bump into the Professor.

I don’t know about you but I’m a planner when it comes to stuff like this so I invested in a really nice map…the kind that’s laminated so I could lay out my destinations. It also becomes a souvenir after, so for me it’s worth it. After I googled the places I most wanted to go I then found them on my map and Sharpied them in circles…hey I’m a clever gurl huh?!?
