A world without surprises would be missing a lot more than a milk chocolate layer on the outside, and a white chocolate layer on the inside...

Right before I jumped out of the plane, she asked, "Are you ready for this?" ...f*** no I screamed mid-backflip as I fell the first 6 ft. of 14,000. Gosh, I was so young and naive, how did I not know that No and Yes means Yes on vacation!?
Sure, winter is coming and with just one look at those Sorels and negative temperatures all your instincts are telling you to huddle inside and not emerge until March, but instead of hibernating, why not make some Canadian travel plans this winter?

Introducing the cutest and coziest holiday activity that there ever was: Toronto’s very own Distillery District Christmas Market. This place is cuter than a French Bulldog puppy turtling on its back and cozier than being buried in a pillow-fort 7 episodes into Narcos.
