We ended up spending a day in Toronto due to missing our connecting flight to Milan. It was pretty unfortunate since we arrived at the gate with 15mins to spare, but due to our luggage being late we weren’t allowed to board. We were given a choice to either board a flight to Lisbon and then transfer to Milan without luggage, or wait for a flight the next day with guaranteed luggage. We decided on the latter since we were going to a wedding and needed our clothes for the event.
As there had been a lot of flight delays due to weather conditions, it meant that a lot of people were also in this position. The airport staff said it would be better to spend the day without luggage in Toronto as our bags were in a holding unit for the connecting flight. So, not only where we about to spend a day in Toronto, but it would also be a day without luggage! When we woke up the next morning in our last min hotel, we didn’t know too much about the area and wanted to do something easy and simple. I found a nice coffee spot called Neo Coffee which was close by to the St Lawrence market. The market had loads of local stalls, fresh produce, flowers and plants.
