Until last weekend, I hadn’t been to another country in an embarrassingly long time. So when I spent New Year’s weekend in Toronto, the itch to be overseas came back. And no, don’t give me the “Canada is the 51st state” stuff. Toronto feels distinctly different from the rest of the U.S, and Montreal even more so. It’s time to break out and travel a little bit. I miss the flying (I’m still not great with turbulence) and walking a city–listening, seeing, exploring. Time to re-expand the borders.
