Toronto Skyline during an evening stroll
So I arrived in Toronto and was fortunate to get in about 30 minutes early.

I decided I was to head to the hostel first and I am glad I decided to ask the friendly people at Pearson International Airport Information desk since I was able to save about $15 by taking the bus/subway, instead of tagging onto a hotel shuttle operation.

I also had the opportunity to familiarize myself with the streets and transit, which is much easier to do when you have to take public transportation. For those of you wanting to do this bus 192 from Pearson Airport will take you to the subway system, which will only be one fare till you leave the next subway system. In other words, the bus pulls into a gated area, so you can transfer without a ticket.

Clarence Castle is a wonderful hostel. It is everything that you want in a hostel, except maybe the partying. It is clean. It is friendly. It is within convenient walking distance of most sites or at least to the subway, bus, or trolley car.

I waited around here until my uncle showed up and talked to the owner and a few guests. 

Once my uncle showed up we decided to head to the waterfront, where there is always something going on. This weekend it was an International Festival with food, music, street performers and fun. :)

We did not eat around there; but instead just walked around up and down streets and ended up in this affordable Pub and Restaurant called the Elephant and Castle.

We then headed back to the hostel since we were both tired after a long day of traveling.
