The clever people at Lonely Planet are really talented at writing copy, taking photos and making videos that give me the itch to travel, to explore new places, to go see everything. Witness their recent teaser video for their 2015 Best In Travel lists:
(If that video doesn’t make you want to run out and buy a round-the-world ticket, I’m not sure anything would.)
Low and behold; my own home of Toronto made it to Lonely Planet’s Top 10 cities list for next year. I was a bit startled. I know we’re hosting the Pan American Games in 2015, but it’s still mildly surprising.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I totally love my city. It has its problems, of course. (Don’t get me started on our recently ex-mayor. Or on transit. Or road construction. Just don’t.) But Toronto has always struck me more as a great place to live rather than a great place to be a tourist in. Clearly, Lonely Planet disagrees with me. I’m happy to be wrong in this instance.
