I’ve always had a love for shoes; so much so that I have a number of pairs at home and only use 3 or 4 of them on a regular basis. But let’s move on with that…speaking of shoes, today, we’re talking about the Bata Shoe Museum. I have this thing for museums, old things, old cities, anything vintage and nostalgic. So when we were going to visit Bata Shoe Museum, I couldn’t contain my happiness. It’s like fashion and history in one place (I have a fascination for anything historical too).
Have you ever fallen in love with a place that you visited for the first time and your heart just burst with so much love for the city? It’s like finally, you’ve found your sanctuary and you feel like you finally belong somewhere. A place where you see yourself 10, 15, 30 years from now. A safe haven where you know you’ll be able to follow your dreams, somehow finally showing you your future. Because I know I have when I first visited Toronto. It has lured me in and I can’t stop going back. There’s just something about the place that makes you feel like you belong. They may not have fancy ass building like the ones we have here in the UAE and they sure don’t have the latest Benz in town; they have beggars in the street, electric poles everywhere and never ending roadworks. What they have is something far more special. Something that you don’t see everywhere, it’s the respect that the people have for each other. You bump into someone by accident and the next thing you know the person you hurt is even the one saying sorry. You go in an elevator and the person you get to ride it with will without a doubt say hi or comment about the weather with a smile. It’s like you’re walking around a town with your family. Everyone just cares about each other, everyone is simply humble. So the next time I’m back in Toronto, I’m going to make sure it’s for good.
Hello there lovely people. I know I’ve been MIA lately but only because I’m currently not in Dubai. If you’re following me on IG you must already know that I’m somewhere in North America 🙂 Anyway, if you’re reading this, let me tell you now that this is a scheduled post; making sure that I keep things on my blog up to date. Moving on, let me share with you my fave travel essentials when I travel.
