Vertigo... or my way to fly.

Vertigo (noun).


1. Vertigo (from the Latin vertō "a whirling or spinning movement") is a type of dizziness, where there is a feeling of motion when one is stationary. The symptoms are due to a dysfunction of the vestibular system in the inner ear... Consumption of too much ethanol (alcoholic beverages) can also cause notorious symptoms of vertigo.


2. Giddiness, lightheadedness, vertigo (a reeling sensation; a feeling that you are about to fall or to fly)


3. The music score for Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film Vertigo was composed by Bernard Herrmann between 3 January and 19 February 1958.


So... it’s happened in Toronto, in its Historical Distillery District. Before my friends brought me there I just knew that it’s nice place where the people of Toronto loves to hang off (fancy restaurants, cafes, galleries etc...) Walking through this interesting place I found a strange structure which reminded me a roller coaster or Russian Mountains, where I had really bad experience. So... I was feeling dizziness or VERTIGO. Trying to make some improvement to my feelings, I decided to get into closest restaurant... Right there my friends told me the history of that place. The Distillery District is a historic and entertainment precinct located east of Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It contains numerous cafes, restaurants and shops housed within heritage buildings of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery. The 13-acre (52,000 sq. m) district comprises more than 40 heritage buildings and 10 streets, and is the largest collection of Victorian era industrial architecture in North America. The Gooderham and Worts Distillery was founded in 1832, and by the late 1860s was the largest distillery in the world. Once providing over 2 million gallons of whisky, mostly for export on the world market, the company was bought out in later years by rival Hiram Walker Co., another large Canadian distiller... After listening this story I understood that I’m in a place where traditionally produced whisky and I thought that trying local drink will be the best improvement for my health...


Later I understood that my VERTIGO is not so bad thing, it’s just introduction to fulfilment of my childish wishes - to fly like a birds... I got out of the restaurant and understood that I can do it. Right near me I saw some men and women who also were ready to fly... A little more whisky and... we did it. We were flying in the sky and even seagulls couldn’t compete with us...


And finally, if you my greatful reader were not so bored by my story, go my way, and fly wherever you are. Look at the clock on my picture. Your start is in 12 minutes... Get your VERTIGO.


Thanks to:

for flying people
