But we had some time to spare with a day off and wanted to make the most of it. So headed to some places that we knew were going to be fun and memorable. I have to say vibrant and friendly Toronto stole my heart.
I was really keen to pop over to Graffiti Alley and check it out. It’s pretty popular and after visiting I can see why.
I would say an alley. probably half a mile long of colour and art. All sorts of work but it blends and looks incredible. Apparently it is legal and painted over a 24 hour period each year.
I’m glad I wore my my colourful clothing. I know I look like I’m posing but in reality I was thinking about chocolate pancakes probably.
If you’re wondering where my outfit is from, it’s from Boden. So please with the Nell Ponte Blazer. I’ve listed everything at the bottom of the post so you can have a look if you fancy.
This Toulon bag was fantastic for the time away. I needed to fit in my camera, phone, make up bag, purse, show passes etc. It was roomy and I still love it now.
In fact I love it so much I kept photographing it as the backdrop was just too tempting not to. How often do you get the opportunity and with so much artistic inspiration ?
So much colour. I was literally in heaven. Luckily Andy and the girls love it too so we were all very happy to spend some time there.
A little pit stop before heading off to for a late lunch at Pizza Libretto in the Financial District – nice food.
Then we went over to a vinyl store recommended by a friend on the tour who knows his record shops. Had a good rummage there. They have an amazing selection of music downstairs.
It’s not your average kind of place as it also has a very cool shop upstairs with books, gifts, home things. You’d love it !
After a bit more meandering we were totally ready for a rest. Niagara Falls and all of this in one day calls for a swim and sleep. Ready for a trip up the CN Tower in the morning and our last gig of the trip.
I’ve another post with us inside the venue preparing for the Coldplay show.
Hope you can see why I love Downtown Toronto so much ?
