My First Visit To Chicago

Travelling to Chicago by Amtrak was a long,  slightly tiring trip. However, I got the opportunity to see  the rest of the country in a way I couldn't, had I been on an airplane.

So this is definitely one city I plan on visiting again; clean, odor free  and non crowded streets gives the downtown Chicago an "A" in my books.  The non crowded streets means the stores aren't crowded either  and that translates into me having my pick of the merchandise unlike in NYC.  Since my visit I've heard of  people making the trip mainly to do some shopping.

I enjoyed some firsts here too; namely Octoberfest and funnel cake. It was my first Octoberfest and I felt like a fish out of water as I navigated the sea of  blue jeans and white T's with my orange pants. However the crowd was super friendly and hot!  I discovered funnel cake at Octoberfest (its almost like I had never been to a street fair in NYC)

And the Chicago Bulls memorabilia in some establishments didn't hurt either, as it brought back the nostalgia of  that era of total domination by Michael Jordan and the Bulls.

Our hotel was within walking distance of  downtown Chicago and that means we got to find out how Chicago became known as the windy city. Alas on a nice uneventful day the unannounced winds would whip us mercilessly before retreating to whence they suddenly came.

Chicago is known for its art and architecture as you'll see in the pics below. Oh, Chicago I will be back for Octoberfest and all in September 2016. And dear readers you can expect more pics and details from this upcoming trip.

5 Destinations On My Travel Resolutions 2016 List




Every destination below has been on my list for years. However, I resolve to visit these destinations in 2016.


1) Paris - for the same reasons everyone wants to visit Paris. Plus because I start planning this trip every year, but have yet to reach Paris. But hey, my very close friend is there until August and she is French, so what better time to go.

2) Toronto - I mean really, how far is Canada from NYC that I have never been?

3) Alaska - yes, an Alaskan cruise is another one of these dream trips I keep putting off every year. Notice its the only cruise on the list, that says something....I really want to get on an Alaskan cruise.

4) Las Vegas - another close friend lived there for years and kept inviting me but I never made it. However, I got a great deal and my hotel is booked since December, so this long overdue trip is definitely a go!

5) Miami - well it is Miami, shall I say more? Fontainebleau. Art Basel. 
Un poco de calor? 
Si, por supuesto.

So there you have it dear readers, stay tuned for updates from these trips!

What are your travel resolutions for 2016?
