    Chicago Cultural Centre

    May 27, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Amazing Tiffany glass dome, the centre was originally a library. Imagine going to choose your books there! It burnt down in the great fire, and Queen Victoria donates books when it was rebuilt.

    And, Tony had stuff to read while we were there!!Read more

    Night in Chicago

    March 22, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    Trip kicked off with a scramble to get out of Madison before the traffic got too bad. Mira will be staying with her grandparents, and she watched us pack up and load the car worriedly.

    Though we stepped out of work early, we had to make a pit stop (a wallet was left at work -- for once it wasn't mine) we weren't quite successful and hit slow-going traffic pretty immediately. We realized that making our 7pm dinner reservations in Chicago wasnt realistic, cancelled them, and settled in for the drive (meaning the girls napped).

    3.5 hours later, we pulled up to the hotel that Caty and her dad would be staying at and handed her off. Hope she has a great time!

    While Laura performed the handoff, I parked the car and hauled our luggage to the Chicago Athletic Association and rejoined Laura. Unfortunately, her license was needed to check in. Which was in her wallet. In the car. Leaving her wallet behind might be the theme of the trip.

    We had dinner (and cocktails) at the Cherry room in the hotel, as we didn't feel like going too crazy given that we'd need to head to the airport at 4:30 the next morning...

    Chicago II

    June 1, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Heute waren wir nochmal in Chicago. Wir wollten auf das Hancock Building, um uns Chicago von oben anzusehen. Aber die Wolkenkratzer haben nicht nur an den Wolken gekratzt. Sie waren darin verschwunden. Also haben wir uns das tolle Gebäude und die Ausstellungen des Chicago Cultural Center angesehen und waren auf der State Street einkaufen. Dann haben wir noch Hot Dogs und Cheeseburger probiert und uns später auf dem Campingplatz ein Feuer angezündet, um unseren letzten Abend hier gemütlich ausklingen zu lassen.Read more
