Our Holidays in Mauritius

The past few weeks have been really hectic and it all started by trying to escape those nasty ice storms that left the thousands in Toronto stranded and braving the cold. Thankfully the storm was over the day of our departure and we made it out of the city without any delay. On our way to Pearson International Airport, we saw the damage those ice storms did to the city. In retrospect, we were glad that we were not in Toronto for the aftermath of those storms and the nasty Р40 degree Celsius days that hit the GTA. So, we headed for Paris on our way back to our homeland, Mauritius.

In the upcoming posts, we will try to give a pictorial account of our adventure back home. Here is a little preview of what we dearly miss now that we are back in Great White North.

The Day Toronto Gets Hit By A Double Ice Storm

As always, we are in a never-ending battle with the elements. In a few hours, we have a flight scheduled to Paris and that’s when Toronto gets hit by two ice storms back to back. The only silver lining: awesome opportunity for photo junkies. We headed out onto the skating rink, braved the cold and snapped some shots. Interestingly, we figured out why Sub-Zero’s Fatality was so effective. Turns out branches snap so easily when frozen out and we saw a tree collapse under its own weight.

Regarding our trip, we will be trying to document thoroughly what we are going to be up to. Audrey is going to have a first attempt at video editing and I will keep snapping away. We will post a link to our YouTube channel in the next post.

In the meantime, stay warm Toronto.
