Taking in a White Sox game at the U.S. Cellular Field.

Watching the El train go by the Chicago Library Centre.

Checking out the skyline from the Museum park grounds.

Watching people check out their reflections in Millennium Park's Cloud Gate sculpture.

A view of the Mayor's green roof atop of City Hall.

Water Tower and John Hancock building.

Jelly fish exhibit (totally awesome) at the Shedd Aquarium.

And the classic Chicago sign for the Chicago Theatre.
It has been ages since I've posted on this blog, so I decided to pick it up again, mostly because I had the above fun photos to share from a recent trip to Chicago. I've been looking forward to visiting the "windy city" ever since the company I work for was acquired by a Co. based in one of the neighbouring cities. I had the weekend to go exploring on my own and I have to say, it was a lot of fun.

Highlights from this trip were: eating deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati's (it was so good, I felt a little sick after); taking in a Sox game (even in the freezing rain - the beer kept me warm, sort of); going on a green architecture tour with the Chicago Architecture Foundation (I highly recommend this as you get to see the Mayor's green roof - not visible to the average tourist); seeing countless Impressionist and Modern works of art at the Chicago Art Institute (this was recommended to me and I'm so glad for it!); and meeting a very cool local designer at her store - Workshop.

Here are all of the photos I have uploaded from Chicago:

This was a trip that I took on my own and I was glad to have done it. It's a great feeling to know you're not afraid to travel when single. Yahoo!

Until next time, kate.
