New TTC Subway Map

Toronto has one of the most easily explained subway systems in the world; and for all of us this is really convenient, especially when you want to go from one place to another in a matter of minutes without getting lost. In a nutshell, the TTC has two primary subway lines: the Bloor-Danforth line (aka the green line) runs west-east, and the Yonge-University-Spadina line (aka the yellow line) runs north-south in a U shape. Despite this is important to know, what we want to talk about is another matter: The TTC redesigned the subway map. Downsview changed its name (now is Sheppard West), and 6 new subway stations were added to the map, which are going to open this December. Also, public washrooms and parking lots are going to be recognized by us. The new maps have already been rolled out on many Line 2 trains, and they should be installed throughout the subway system by May 7.       IELTS in Toronto

#MEALPLANTO is here!

  Toronto is well known for its food diversity. From international restaurants to all those food trucks you can find on practically every corner, food is everywhere, for every taste at any time. That’s why there is one “food organization” that help us to discover some of the best food in town. Previously, Toronto’s Finest had the original $5 food crawl which worked with a passport, and you could taste the best but specific dishes from some good and famous places in the city, for 2 or 4 weeks. But now, they launched #MealPlanTO, the newest version of this food crawl, which works a little bit different but with more benefits than before. Now you only need to become a member for just $3/month, and you will have immediately access to irresistible $5 food deals. The best thing, is that each month they will add fresh deals from new restaurants to keep things interesting!     IELTS in Toronto
