Last month Mike and I visited Chicago. It was windy, cold, and there was even a bit of snow! We’ve bean (heehee!) before so we didn’t do many of the classically touristy things. Instead we wandered around a bit, eating, shopping and generally chilling out inside because it was pretty darn cold outside. I felt even colder than Iceland, but that’s probably because in Iceland we were hopping in and out of a car with heated seats.
There weren’t any heated seats on this trip but the icy-cold made the city even more gorgeous. I’m in love with the architecture in Chicago. How could I not love a city that has corn-cob like parking structures/buildings? I didn’t snap a photo of them, but you know the ones I’m talking about, right? We actually didn’t venture out on the streets very much because it was SO cold. Our one walk ended up in us grabbing an uber, which then proceeded in the uber driver getting lost in the underbelly of Lower Wacker.
One snowy day we did end up walking around Wicker Park and of course I had ice cream at Jeni’s, because ice cream. I know that Jeni’s isn’t from Chicago, but I’m a sucker for ice cream, even in the snow. There were a bunch of cute lifestyle stores in Chicago but my favorite store of them all was Eataly! I love wandering and looking at food stuffs so it was an Italian dream.
Chicago, you were full of good food and good times. I’m still dreaming about that camo matcha latte art at Sawada. I’ll be back soon!
