Our Kind of Town…

Unfortunately, due to the constraints of the trip (and relatively tight 52-week schedule), we are sometimes forced to make compromises, which is what we did in Chicago. Victoria and I have been to Chicago a couple times alone and once before together, and since it’s in a state near to ours (and flights are always relatively cheap – Thanks Southwest!), we decided it was best to spend only a few days, a weekend, in the city.

Each of the two days spent in Chicago started and ended the same way, with us sleepily boarding the METRA train for a ninety-minute rumble from and back to our car. But, the moments in between on each day painted the city in remarkably different context and texture. So we’ve separated our trips into two image tours that you can find here:

Chicago Day 2: on some boats!
