A day at the tracks

The trip to Hamilton to attempt to take photos of trains passing by at a busy junction turned out a bit differently than planned…

Only 1.5 trains were spotted (the 0.5 being an engine slowly passing by).

But who could complain? It was a gorgeous 18 degrees and sunny out, at a beautiful location along the escarpment.

AND after an afternoon long waiting game, I was rewarded with a trip to Niagara Falls, New York to visit Target and a great meal of pizza and wings at Gagsters. YUM!

Check out my one and only train photograph (my camera was acting up all day…grrrrr):

The waiting game...

Porter @ 50% off!

Two more days!!!

Porter is offering 50% off all flights to/from Toronto Island Airport.

So I could go to NYC for March break for $300 round trip. Not too shabby!!! Or Boston, or Quebec City….or Montreal….Halifax…drooooool

It really is the most wonderful time of the year when Porter is so nice to us.

Global Bazaar

Travel and Leisure magazine, American Express, and Delta bring you ‘Global Bazaar’, in New York City.

This is what you get:

“Through sensory installations, authentic culinary experiences, unique merchandise from around the globe, live performances, and much more–T+L will celebrate the world and the joy of exploring it.”

Check out what you can buy too! I’ll go for the Moroccan furnishings, since I was unable to bring much home when I went a few years ago.

You also get a free subscription to T + L Magazine (tickets are between $50-75).

Representing Canada (maybe I could help out??!!):

Wait…ok, I have a secret too. I really would love to go to this just so I had an excuse to head to NYC for a few days. But I am sure I could think of many other excuses another day….

Travel Alert!

Serious business!

Check out Porter Airlines if you wish to travel to and from Toronto. There is a crazy deal on right now – 50% off all flights! Must book by September 7th, and is good for travel until December 15th.

I just looked for my long weekend in November. I could go to Boston for some clam chowder for $290 round trip/taxes included or Chicago for deep dish pizza for $230 round trip/taxes included….Montreal shopping…&230….New York sightseeing …$260….oh I’m in the danger zone!
