Chicago Summers are like no other! So green and fresh. Being from California I can appreciate clouds and unexpected rain, but when I packed for my trip there….I quickly learned how mistaken I was about a summer in the midwest! Note to self: Layers!DSC_0252DSC_0186

Chicago has one of the country’s best public transportation. The Rail System is easy, fast and quite the adventure.  DSC_0263DSC_0268DSC_0270DSC_0279DSC_0286DSC_0299

Not sure what happened here but now I see that my ‘LA’ hand sign is a disaster and not quite the vision I had in my head. The alley ways however are great spots for photos!


Cloud Gate, AKA “The Bean” in Millenium Park is perhaps one of the most visited sites in Chicago. With its 360 degree view of the surrounding sky-scrappers and and selfie opportunities it’s a perfect break stop to take in all of Downtown’s beauty.
