About CBG to YYZ

CBG to YYZ is a travel/food blog by Cambridge, UK-native Darren Gothard and Toronto-born Jane Man.

The blog launched as the formerly long-distance couple wrap up another chapter in their time apart: as Darren ended his work travels to Miami, FL for more time at home in Toronto, the duo celebrate their first anniversary of cohabitation and embark on their first trip to Asia together.


5,703 km. That’s the distance between Cambridge, UK and Toronto, Canada. Now, imagine being in a romantic relationship where you and your partner are separated after just nine months in the same city. You quickly adjust to time differences. Skype replaces your date nights, and you only ever cook meals for one. You get to see each other only one weekend every two months.

That was the life of Darren and Jane for 2.5 years.
