My name is Lorna. I have traveled extensively and welcome the opportunity to share my home with like minded travelers.

During my travels , the best part was meeting "locals", who know the area.

As I've lived in downtown Toronto most of my life, I can suggest local "hot spots", where to get the best deals, shopping / excursions, directions and more...

Feel "at home" while visiting TORONTO on a budget.

My home (an old 3- Storey Victorian), is in an Ideal Location- Downtown Toronto, near Korea Town (Annex Area- Steps from Christie Subway Station and Christie Pits Park).
