As a Regional Delegate from Timmins Ontario,  I arrived in Toronto at around 2:30 pm this afternoon. I got to the Holiday Inn Toronto International Pearson Hotel and went to the ballroom with other delegates waiting for the rest to arrive making new friendships and meeting great girls.

At 6:30 pm we entered into the ballroom at the Airport Holiday Inn in Toronto to attend the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada. I was feeling excited and extatic to be here and share this amazing experience with other amazing young  ladies from across all of Canada.

The party was exceptional and fun! The room was filled with many tables which included Sponsor’s products.

 

Delegates, freshly arrived from all different regions of Canada, will assemble here and take lots of pictures of themselves in a parade of shareable moments alongside Sponsor’s products.

Sam Dhutia from Sweets Canada was at the party doing chocolate tastings. Sam made a very informative and delicious chocolate tasting exhibit – after each sampling he generously gave out gourmet chocolate bars , and or edible flower chocolate bars, depending on each delegate’s individual preferences, as discovered during the tastings.

Bradley Ryall Golf Academy

A fun exhibit at the Opening Night Sponsors’ Party was from Bradlee Ryall Golf Academy which teaches golf lessons at six golf courses west of Toronto. On Weds July 20th we’re all going to the golf academy to play a one-hole golf game for two ladies golf jackets (which are prizes from SWING active wear). Here at the party there was a live mini golf attraction set up for us to practice our putting.

Archers Arena

At the party there was a bow and arrow (with a giant marshmallow on the pointy end) and we all took turns trying to hit a paper target that was setup in the ballroom. We’ll ALL be playing Archery Tag in Toronto at Archers Arena on Thursday July 21st 2016. On that night, look for the hashtag #archerytag.

Even better, they make a single feed URL to which our parents and friends can subscribe to follow along in real time as we experience all the different activities here in Toronto. And the mass of spontaneously issued images and text from all 65 delegates will be archived on this page in the Miss Teenage Canada main site and on the Miss Teen Canada Blog Network / Search for Miss Teenage Canada 2016.

There are so many amazing reasons as to why anyone should visit my hometown. Located in Northerneastern Ontario in one of the most richest producing areas, there is a wonderful little city called Timmins.

image

At any time of year, anyone is to find themselves in the “City with a Heart of Gold” and also fascinated by its history and beauty, with hundreds of lakes, and rivers just about anywhere you go, anyone is to enjoy a great experience of fishing and hunting. Timmins will also surprise you with so many recreational outdoors activities such as skidooing, dirtbiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and so much more. With our cold dry winters and endless trails of snowmobiling, Timmins has become one of many favourite locations for thousands of people who enjoy this activity. Snowmobiling is one of my favourite things to do and I have so much fun.

imageimageimageimage

In conclusion, I think Timmins biggest attractions are its outdoors activities if you love them as much as I do!! 🙂 These outdoor activities allow you to connect with nature and admire the natural beauty around you!!

Thank you for reading!!

Adrienne, xoxo

They say that the world could me described as a book, and that each new life experience commences a new chapter. So is it true that we haven’t truly lived without travelling to see and experience what the beauty of our world has to offer? Not necessarily…But it sure helps!!

For over 35 years S-Trip! has been a leader in student travel providing life-changing trips to over 40,000 students annually in over 40 destinations around the world. S-Trip! travellers are encouraged to become global citizens; opening their eyes to new cultures, languages, and experiences. Recently named Profit Magazine’s 25th fastest growing company in Canada, and recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies by Deloitte and CIBC, S-Trip! is a leader in student travel in North America. Find out more at www.s-trip.com.

To add to all that, S-Trip! has now so generously offered the Miss Teen Canada World delegates the opportunity of a lifetime! Not only will someone be crowned Miss Teen Canada World but… Drum roll please… the Social Media Queen will be chosen as well!

So let’s kick things off right and create a little bit of an image for you… hmmm what is my dream vacation? Sitting down at a nice little french restaurant on the market with your friends, snacking on some fresh cheese and baguettes, watching as the people walk by with no care or worry in the world. Oh… do you hear that?? Beautiful live music playing in the background as an artist captures the happiness and freedom expressed on your sun-kissed face. We must be sitting at an outdoor bistro in Paris! Imagine how animated our voices would be, lightly evoking glares from the elegant parisians surrounding us 😉 

This city of lights lives and breathes art and culture. At every street corner, the architecture, the smells and the sounds evoke memories of days long ago during the renaissance. Europe in general has a strong hold in the history books and it takes little else than a stroll around Les Champs Élisées or perhaps an evening on the hill on MontMartre for the dream to be a complete reality. Its one thing to learn art history from the classroom and another to have the unimaginable thrill of standing in front of this beautiful painting from long ago. Examining and discussing with friends the intricacies of each brush stroke at an arms length distance. That is passion at its finest.

Paris is a city where artist’s dreams become reality. The present mixes with the past and everywhere you linger leaves an indelible mark on your spirit. There was a time where illness left me bedridden and my artistic skills became the only escape from a difficult reality. As they say, when one part of you is taken away the other senses heighten, in my case, the need to express myself became overwhelming and escaped on canvas and through music. This is the time I produced my largest amount of paintings, drawings and songs. While a difficult time, my artistic growth augmented my need for expression, which would not have developed otherwise. I imagine myself on the grass under the Eiffel Tower with my most favourite people in the world (and Justin Bieber could always join if he wanted too, i have no problem with that) , thinking back on my experiences, appreciating that everything happens for a reason and creating my masterpiece, whether art or song. Even better, my guitar in hand mixing in with the locals, sharing what I have with them, and they with me.

Knowing my group of girlfriends… OMG shopping!

Who wouldn’t enjoy huge malls and high fashioned boutiques?! I can assure you we would do some damage 😉 And then of course an opera or a musical would be in the books for the evening! Imagine how elegant we would make ourselves to blend in with parisian society. The Metro would be an experience of its own, probably best explored “en groupe”.

This trip would in some ways be a return to my roots, exploring the french language in a different setting and enriching my culture and my passions through exploring all that the city has to offer.  Perhaps we could even over look the Seine, on a bridge covered in the padlocks of couples before us. Who knows…I might even fall in love 😉 it is the city of love isn’t it? Fingers crossed! 

 

S-Trip! takes student travellers on unforgettable adventures around the world. Celebrate the exciting conclusion of high school in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Cuba, Costa Rica or Bahamas with all your friends on Grad Trip. Spend a weekend skiing or snowboarding at one of Canada’s premier mountain resorts on Ski Trip. Experience culture, sightseeing and events in Montreal or Quebec City on Busaway. Make a difference in an underdeveloped country on an impactful student Volunteer Trip. Explore the culture and history of Europe on Euro Adventure. For more information visit www.s-trip.com.
