From a dynamic international music scene to tranquil parks, Toronto’s got it all. Now, meet your guide.

Long-time Toronto resident Lusine, known within the Matador community as Travelflare, is eager to help visitors to her city make the most of the experience.

Here’s her take on Canada’s largest metropolis:

Although this has been my home for the past 11 years, I am still finding new places and learning new things. Toronto offers great international cuisine, numerous festivals all year long, live international music, nightlife and peaceful natural parks.

Being a multicultural city, Toronto compliments perfectly my personality and background, hence I have expertise in cultural festivals, concerts, restaurants, nightclubs and touristic attractions. Ask me anything you’d like, if I am not familiar with it, I will try to ask around and find an answer.

When she’s not fielding traveler’s questions on Toronto, Lusine is busy working as a travel agent and as editor of a sweet online travel mag, The Compass, which focuses on culture and experience of place (definitely worth a look!).

She also keeps up her personal blog, Travelflare, when she can.

And on top of all that, she’s blogged about Toronto’s nightlife, Asian cuisine, and its ubiquitous hot dogs right here on Matador.

Obviously, the girl knows her stuff. Visit her Matador profile to connect.
