Chicago Recap

Hello all!

I’ve been crazy busy lately trying to get everything ready for school, plus packing up my stuff to move. I’m excited for another semester, but let’s be honest, summer went way too quick. I was gone for two weeks visiting family & exploring some new places, but now I’m back to adulting & I just want to escape again!

Chicago was our first stop & I fell in love, despite how stressful it was. I wish I could say I saw everything I wanted & got to explore every inch of the city with time to spare, but I would be lying. We only had a few hours to spend downtown. Parking alone took us an hour because the traffic is so bad. On the plus side, I did get to see some things as we were driving the streets in search of a place to park. Pro tip: Get a hotel downtown & either walk or Uber to your destination. That’s what we did the first time I visited & it worked a lot better & saved us time.

River Walk

The only thing I really had to see was the Wrigley Building clock. At the time, I didn’t even know what it was called, I just knew I had to get a picture of it because I saw a picture on Pinterest that was so cool I needed my own version. (Ya know how I roll…)

I also wanted a selfie at the famous reflecting bean statue so we walked there, but it was super hot, humid & crowded. Not my idea of the perfect Insta shot, but I got a few good pics & an excuse to go back!

Just me & my mum being typical Windy City tourists…

 

Cloud Gate sculpture, better known as the Reflective Bean in Millennium Park.

Although I didn’t get to see everything I wanted, I got to spend time in a new place & create new memories ( not all good… ). I did get some good pictures & lots of reasons to go back & visit. I even kinda want to move there now. But I say that about almost every place I visit…

This is the signature pose that I do in front of anything with significance. 

What are your favorite places to visit in Chicago? Let me know in the comments or on social media because I definitely plan on going back someday soon… 

P.S. Also. Guys. Have you tried true Chicago deep dish pizza? If you haven’t, you need to. This was my first experience & it was sooo good. There were layers upon layers of cheesy goodness.

xo,
