Realized that it has been a summer of little day trips and weekends. One of the nice things about moving back has been exploring areas around Toronto that I haven’t been to for years or just never got around to visiting, particularly in the U.S. These might not be the most glamorous of locations, but there’s always something to see, something to do, something to give you context. It helps if you enjoy long car drives and the process of getting there rather than just being in your final destination. I mean, radio + gas station snacks + farmstands – it’s easy.
