Let's go Chicago! (Part One)

A travel blog entry by mysuppression


"Sleep when you're dead", they say.

My quick transit in Minneapolis was as blurry as how jet blast escapes an aircraft engine. In my desperate need to just want to sit back down again, I sped off to what seemed the other side of earth to attempt my next standby battlefield to Chicago.

In my dazed state, I knew the protocol to …

The Windy City

A travel blog entry by jutors


Coming all the way from Stavanger, THE windy city in Norway, our expectations were quite high. We got slightly dissappointed though, the wind wasn't much to brag about! The city Chicago on the other hand, was great! We had no idea what to expect, and found everything to be a pleasant surprise. Acting like crazy tourists once again, we climbed all …

Baby, I got the bluuues....

A travel blog entry by jimandlaura


We decided to use today to get organised for our roadtrip around the Southwest states. We walked down to the main shopping strip, N Michigan Avenue, and found a Borders bookshop. We bought a guide and a map and sat in a coffeeshop looking over possible routes. We also visited the local AAA (American Automobile Association) branch. If you are an AA …

Bikes and (high)lights...

In the morning we walked down to Millennium Park, just south of the river., at the edge of the Loop. The park was recently regenerated and includes a number of famous sculptures and architectural buildings, such as the Jay Pritzker Pavillion (an outdoor concert venue), the interactive Crown Fountain and the iconic Cloud Gate sculpture (see pics). …

Chicago marathon and river cruise

A travel blog entry by jimandlaura


We were staying just a couple of blocks from the 12 mile mark of the marathon, which was due to start today. Our hotel had been very busy since we arrived and most of the people staying here seem to be here to either take part in, or watch, the marathon. For us, being in Chicago during the marathon was just a coincidence, but, as Jim had taken part …

    The hotel was fantastic. In a great location and room although compact, cleverly designed to create space. Staff were friendly on check in and check out, and the hotel doorman was especially attentive when giving me directions to the nearest coffee shops to help cure my jetlag.
    Rooftop bar was great, generally a little quiet during the week, but the roof blew off over the weekend, with an awesome atmosphere both inside and out, great music and excellent cocktails!
