The Amazing Chi-Town!

Hello Hello Hello! My sister and I just got back from an amazing trip to Chicago! It was my first time flying, using public transportation, and just being there in Chicago and WOW! What an experience! We got home early this morning and I already can’t wait to go back!

Chicago has long been on my list of places I eventually wanted to go to – mainly because we have I-94 right next to us that goes all the way to Chicago and when Tintin visited America where did he go? Chicago. Of course the original unplanned plan was to go by car or train, but plane is so much faster. πŸ˜‰ My sister and I started hard planning our trip on 2/21/2015 – the day I went to Pine Knob. πŸ™‚ (So much fun!) Most of the important details – hotel and flights – were worked out the day before we left on our trip. OMIGOSH!!! Talk about nerve-wrecking! Sometimes you just gotta trust that it’s gonna work out. Once we were on the plane, we were good. πŸ™‚

During our trip I took over 1,000 pictures and video! Looking at the media again makes me feel really happy. πŸ™‚ I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to experience Chicago with my sister. Being open to impromptu stops and allowing plans to change led to a really amazing time. Β I hope to have many more awesome first experiences soon!

Thanks for reading!
