We are kinda in love with this. A map of the world begins with all the land masses having a brassy sheen, but that metallic surface scratches off like a lottery ticket to keep track of your travel destinations. The other side is blank and white for you to mark your flight paths. Boast your worldliness with some subtlety. “Oh, when did you go to Iceland?” your friends will say. “Ha ha, just last year, shall I regale you with a tale of black sanded beaches and freaky-long days?” Measures about 16.5″x12″ when unrolled and about 5″x2″ in its travel tube.

This is what I’ve decided to call these Life posts… because life is a series of adventures, right? OU SO CHEESY I LOVE IT.

Here is what I’ve been up to the past week.

IMG_3573

I went on a splendid walk along King Street East, where I came across this lovely park filled with hobos and flowers (:

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Hi my name is AnnaMaria, and I am a coffee-aholic. More like espresso-holic. I’m Italian, so this makes more sense.

In the Distillery of Toronto there are so many cafés that master espresso lattes and cappuccinos, which makes me die a little inside because I am so excited to go to all of these cafés and drink ALL THE DRINKS. Just this weekend alone I was able to have beautiful cafe experiences in Balzac’s Coffee, and Cafe Furbo.

Here are a few quick pics I snapped while in line at Balzac’s Coffee..

I didn’t end up getting coffee there because it was WAY TOO BUSY WITH TOURISTS. Like, way too busy. So I ventured over to Cafe Furbo where I fell in love.

I walk in and the first thing I say to the barista is not “Hey, how are you?” or “Hi, I would like a coffee” – it was “IT SMELLS LIKE OIL PAINT IN HERE I LOVE IT.” They gave me a free tea biscuit on the way out so I guess we became fans of each other.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Later that night I headed to a recording studio, where I got to record the chorus for one of my buddies’ tracks. I will share specific details once their album is released (: But look how cool the studio looks…
