    Route 66: Abschied

    September 30 in the United States

    Der Tag fängt gut an. Bevor wir die Wohnung verlassen, wollen wir testen ob die Wohnungsschlüssel funktionieren. Unsere Vorgänger hatten nämlich schon einige Probleme. Sie funktionieren nicht. Es hilft alles nichts, wir müssen los, da wir die Motorräder und das Auto abgeben müssen. Wir schließen die Tür von innen ab und ziehen sie in der Hoffnung, dass uns am Abend jemand auf macht, zu.
    Wir fahren zum Appartment der Anderen und dann weiter zu Eagle Rider, wo wir die Motorräder abgeben 😥. Ohne eine Panne haben uns die Bikes 2534 Meilen quer durch die USA gebracht.

    Wir geben noch unser Auto ab, holen den Van der anderen ab und belohnen uns anschließend im Hofbräuhaus mit der ein oder anderen Maß und Mittagessen (Schweinshaxe bzw. Brezn 😋). Die Amerikaner versuchen hier gefühlt, alle Traditionen aus Bayern, der Schweiz und Österreich in ein Gebäude zu stopfen, was aber teilweise recht amüsant ist.

    Da wir Angst um unsere Gesundheit haben, ziehen wir nach schon einer Nacht aus unserer WG aus und gesellen uns wieder zum Rest der Gruppe. Obwohl wir etwas improvisiert und teilweise auf dem Boden übernachten, fühlen wir uns hier doch deutlich wohler.

    Da das Wetter heute nicht das beste ist, verbringen wir den Rest des Tages mit Pokern und Blackjack spielen.

    Rosemont Day 1

    August 23 in the United States

    So my 14th (!) trip to the US started with a flight to Amsterdam where I had a short layover before heading to Chicago. The flight to Amsterdam was short and sweet, and I didn’t have much of a wait in Amsterdam before the second leg of the journey.

    The big ol’ 747-400 jumbo jet is always impressive, and KLM is a really great airline. Even in economy, I thought the food and service was exceptionally good. The entertainment system screen was a bit on the small side, but among other things I watched an 80s comedy, and a brand new remake of it right after. Of course, I also watched a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory. I don’t think I’ve ever been on a long haul flight that didn’t have that show in their entertainment portfolio.

    After a flight of about 9 hours, we got into Chicago on time. It’s a very busy airport though so it took quite a while to get through immigration etc. Always my least fav part of visiting the US.

    When finally getting out of the airport, I eventually boarded the train for just one stop to Rosemont where I’m staying for the night. It’s about an hour outside the city, but I got a great view of the skyline when approaching the airport.

    I’ve been to Chicago one time before and this time around I won’t be able to make it there since I’m going to the next destination - Indianapolis - already tomorrow afternoon. Chicago is basically just a stop on the way there.

    Rosemont is the host of a major four day comic con called Wizard World. I was also here two years ago, when they had a really cool guest lineup. This year it’s quite dull sadly, but I figured I could stop by on my way to Indianapolis.

    Wizard World opened at 4 pm today which was around the time I arrived at my hotel, just across the venue. I was there for a couple of hours, checking out the many stalls and traders. There were also some interesting picture cars from Jurassic Park, Batman and other movies. Before leaving for the night I visited a panel about the ‘best worst movies’! Pretty amusing. The con was not busy today at all so it was easy to browse and get a feel for it.

    After the con I had dinner at a nice steak house that is connected with my hotel. A table with eight diners close to mine had apparently ordered way too much cake so they gave me their remaining cake... and it turned out to be a HUGE piece thst could have fed the whole restaurant!

    A long day of travelling, concluded with a taste of comic con and steak! (and cake)

    Chicago!! Stage 1 R&L's Adventure

    June 19, 2016 in the United States

    8hrs in O'Hara or a sightseeing tour on the river? Love the history, skyline & architecture. The iconic tower landmark, now owned by the Willis Group may be spelled W-I-L-L-I-S, but it is pronounced 'Sears'. Next up we'll see you from Copenhagen.
