      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.

      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 …

      After saying our goodbyes, Alyssa and I headed to our gate. Now, my Dad and I are suckers for crazy planes, so the chance to fly on the new A380 jumbo jet was quite exciting for me. The closest my Dad had gotten was seeing it from the domestic side of the terminal when it was parked at the ...

      Then continuing to Peru - Lima and the south. Cuzco, capital of the Incas. Colca Canyon, home of the giant condor, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. Lake Titicaca, that I giggled about in grade 5. Macchu Picchu, hidden city of the Incas, before they were destroyed by the Spanish conquerors in quest for gold and global dominion. A time in the past, much like now.

      We decided to settle for the 24th dec flight and spent extra 2 nights in Toronto downtown.

      We dragged our luggage to find our hotel, stopping by a bar for dinner (everything else were closed). We had canadian beer and german sausages with yam fries. I am not a fan of beers, but I find this particularly nice. We were starving. After dinner, we went to the hotel and finally rest.

      ... less you spend, the more food you get, and this is not different. My hunger is quickly taken care of with a plate of greasy food, and my exhaustion is fixed with a cup of coffee. I could probably count on one hand how many cups of brew I've had in my life (let me qualify that, without Baileys), so this caffeine jolt really does the trick. We have a few short hours to the border, just enough time to practice our answers for customs. Randy is convinced we'll be ...
