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!

    Thanks for sharing this. Now I won’t need to visit Chicago. Seen it through my daughter’s camera lens. Maybe a kayak trip down the Chicago River…hemmm?

    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…

  4. I’ve never particularly had a strong desire to visit Chicago, but it does look like a nice city to see.

  5. Haha love Boomer’s reaction! I’ve been to Chicago for a day trip once but get to go again soon now that Kaleb lives within an hour from it 🙂 THanks for joining #SundayTraveler
