      Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

      We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

      We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

      The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

      The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

      The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

      There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

      In the Heart of the City

      I generally take 'pilgrimages' to the city a few times a year, to take in a concert, go to the museum visit the AGO or just to get out of my familiar surroundings. This visit was just an overnighter as I was catching a train bound for New York the next morning, and AMTRAK only runs once a day out of Toronto. I stayed at The Rex this time, after …

      What an absolutely perfectly wonderful late September day. A friend I had made in the Yukon when we shared a three day trip down the Yukon River, picked Minnie and me up from our campsite, drove us to the downtown Toronto waterfront and got us onto a little passenger-only ferry that takes people to a series of little islands about 10 minutes away. The ferry was packed but it didn’t feel at all crowded on the islands ...

      ... in mileage works out to a very significant saving on a long trip like this.

      We had supper and decided to go for a short walk around the campsite even though it was dark. As we stepped out the door it started to rain so we decided against the walk. Within a few minutes lightning and thunder bore down on us and the light and sounds were less them one second apart. It was very spectacular for a few minutes and we were glad to be safe and dry inside with the roof vent ...

      PANIC & Second Thoughts

      A travel blog entry by seekermm on Feb 02, 2014


      Spent the morning shovelling snow, washing the car so it could go into storage and repacking my pack. All very good distractions from the thought that I would soon be on plane, flying to the other side of the world to spend 3 months traipsing around foreign countries where I know no one & nothing.

      Now, as I sit near my gate waiting for my boarding ...

      Part III: The Journey Home

      ... hanging over the Cliffs of Moher will be one of my favourite memories taken away from this trip. Scotland was awesome and my favorite memory from that will be horseback riding along the beach and seeing 150,000 Gannets flying around above me when we toured around Bass Rock; it truly is surreal.

      All in all, it's good to be back home but having finally definitely traveled overseas it is something I look forward to doing again. Getting back to Iceland is probably tops on the list.
