Toronto is considered Canada’s melting pot. It is said that half of the people living in Toronto were born outside of the country, so that means lots of different languages, sights and flavours, which make the city a really fun place to explore. With only a few days in Toronto, we set out to visit a mix of neighbourhoods, top attractions, and of course, we also made time to sample plenty of food. The following travel guide will showcase 25 things to do in Toronto, so if you’re planning a trip here or you need some travel inspiration, be sure to stick around as we take you on a city tour:

This past summer I was fortunate enough to spend an entire week traveling around the Lombardy region of Italy. Half of my time was focused in Milan with the other portion dedicated to visiting scenic rural places such as Chiavenna and Bergamo.

In Milan, I was surprised by the diversity of activities on offer – aside from just shopping – including sampling cuisine unique to the city, wandering around streets covered with tasteful street art, and experiencing fine dining and drinking in the evening.

Even more fascinating to me was how easy it was to escape the city and be fully immersed in the countryside. An hour or two by train allowed us to be straddling the border with Switzerland in the Italian Alps or marveling at the magnificent Lake Como.

The following is a travel and food guide of 10 unique things you can experience while visiting Lombardia.

While visiting the quaint town of Bergamo located in Lombardy, Italy little did we realize a unique Italian sweet originated from there. It was only after hearing about it from a local at lunch that we realized we had to go on mission to try and find one for dessert.

Well, it certainly didn’t take us long as Polenta e osei very distinctly stands out in many windows of Italian shops. The dome shaped polenta cake is cornmeal yellow and typically features marzipan sculptures on top. In this video we made the mistake of thinking polenta was actually added to the exterior of the cake; however, truth be told (and probably this is a good thing given that polenta is more of a savory ingredient) these sweet treats are actually only made to resemble a savory Polenta dish that typically features bird inside.

Everything about this snack is saturated in sugar. Normally we both have enough of a sweet tooth to finish a dessert on our own; however, we needed to help each other out to polish this one off. If you’re in Bergamo be sure to try Polenta e osei.

Having spent significant time in both Dublin and Belfast it was time for a road trip to visit Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. Although the weather was nice when we left Belfast it didn’t take long for it to change into the more typical overcast day with intermittent rain. Along the way we stopped for lunch in Ballycastle where we devoured some fish and chips, warm soup and a pint of Guinness. After warming up by the fire we finally arrived at Giant’s Causeway (Irish: Clochán an Aifir or Clochán na bhFomhórach) and spent the better part of the day exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site before heading back to Belfast.

For the past month Audrey and I have been working on a secret project here in Buenos Aires from our short-term rental apartment. Although we've now made several city guides from various locations around the world, we wanted to create our biggest one yet in Buenos Aires. Because we love the city so much we wanted to show you the best of its attractions, museums, food and neighborhoods. The following is a 50 things to do in Buenos Aires travel video:

Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to visit my share of festivals. However, I’ve yet to attend one that is purely focused on one particular food item. That all changed while visiting the town of Chiavenna, Italy. We happened to be in town during Dì de la Bresaola. This Italian meat festival centered around Bresaola – a meat we found kind of similar to prosciutto. Typically served as an antipasto, this air-dried salted beef is usually aged two to three months before becoming dark red and hard enough to serve.

Wandering around the streets before lunch we hit all 14 stands along the circuit grabbing a small sample from every single table.. It felt as though we were having our appetizer a little bit early 😉

The festival itself had a lot more going on than just meat tastings. Marching bands and vendors selling all kinds of trinkets vied for the moving crowds attention. Overall, we had a great time and it was wonderful that the weather improved significantly as the day went on. If you’re in Chiavenna in the fall try to time your visit around this festival. It’s the kind of unique quirky experience you’ll surely never forget.
