Mackenzie | Explore Like A Local

I am all about good friends, good food, good wine! I love traveling to the point where if you see me day dreaming I am either thinking about a place I have been, or where I want to go someday soon. Languages are another passion that I am constantly dabbling. So if you want a good coffee, a chat, or a glass of something to fire you up, just get in touch!

My passions are:

  • Food
  • Languages
  • Reading
  • Sake Tasting
  • Theatre
  • Travelling
  • Wine

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Budget eats
  • Cafés & coffee shops
  • Restaurants & food
  • Bars & nightlife
  • Local neighbourhoods
  • Shops & markets

My idea of a great trip is: Going somewhere off the beaten path where I will have a full cultural and linguistic experience. Ideally I would spend with locals, get to understand the history, the culture, and the politics and try all the delicious food and drinks along the way. Sitting in cafés is a must. I have traveled a lot so lately the more exotic the better.

I love my city because: It is young by global standards but it is really blooming at the moment. So many creative and international people contribute to the cultural fabric of Toronto and it shows in the music, art, and food scene. It is busy and full of activity while still allowing you to feel like you are in a small intimate neighbourhood right in down town.
