I was supposed to be in the windy city for 7 days and then I was going to write a 2-part series about my experience. Something came up however and my trip was cut short so I don’t have too much to write. Chicago was absolutely beautiful. The streets were clean and parts of the city gave me a London-y vibe. What I observed about the city was a laid-back lifestyle matched with an energy I’ve only ever felt in New York City. I really liked it and maybe I saw Chicago through some rose-colored lenses, being there for all of 32 hours, the reality mustn’t be so far off right? In any case, I’d like to return sometime.
I had a lovely room at the Intercontinental Hotel on Magnificent Mile. In the last picture, there are 2 pieces of luggage which was all I packed for my anticipated 1 week stay! I’ve had a problem for so long with packing lightly so I challenged myself on this trip and I must say, I was pretty impressed :). I packed only 4 pairs of shoes, an outfit for each of the 7 days plus 2 extras just incase and then toiletries and gadgets. Win.
Can’t wait to go back sometime. Thanks to BCG for this trip and the amazing workshop they put together.
