Chicago Solo Trip Recap

Chicago Solo Trip
Skyline view of Chicago

Chicago had been on my list of places to visit for a long time. The cost of getting there and it being a gigantic city deterred me for many years but I am glad I got over my fears and took the trip. Although getting lost every day was frustrating I was able to find my way most of the time without help and that gave me confidence in my ability to travel solo. I will forever remember my trip to Chicago as it was a true adventure filled with public transportation mishaps, questionable weather and amazing architecture.

Hardest thing to leave behind for this trip…  He also believes if he doesn’t look at me that I won’t see him!

Boomer hopped in the car while I was loading up for the airport… apparently he wanted to visit Chicago as well!

Splendidly tall buildings, but the house on Oak Park is my favourite. So exotic to me!

I am now itching to know who Frank Lloyd White is, and I think I see you have some posts on him so if you’ll excuse me…
