I am more than fortunate with my position at my company. I get (well, at least I used to!) to travel quite frequently for my job. During one of my trips to Chicago three years ago this week actually, it was freezing with the wind whipping off the lake. Even though it was ridiculously cold that trip, we still walked almost everywhere and soaked in everything we could in the few days we were there.
Chicago amazes me and terrifies me. It’s beautiful, yet can look so ferocious with its extremely tall buildings and there’s just so.much.cement.
I took this picture on our way back from a spectacular hidden speak easy. The fog, mist, and multi colored lights coming from the buildings made Chicago beautiful. It made the city quiet if just for a moment.
I had many amazing moments on this trip. The Bean, Buddy Guy’s Blues club where I was actually in tears because the music was so welcoming to my ears and soul. I can’t wait to start traveling again.
If only for a moment… I fell in love with Chicago. I look forward to making my way to back once again to tug at my heartstrings.
What city, while beautiful and wonderful, do you feel a pull to go back to even though you're not in love with it?

I absolutely love NYC. As I leave NJ Transit in Penn Station, it begins. I feel the energy! I've had so many wonderful experiences. Day and night walking through the city and watching the people in the crowds. Last September when I was there, it was no where as busy of course, but it still feels like it could be home. I've met many wonderful people and made friends. I love the diversity of the city and blending of cultures.

Hi Wendy! Thanks so much for your reply! NYC is another one that is totally intimidating to me. That being said, I'd love to explore it in this time of pandemic - to see it a little more quiet. A little more calm. But it truly is a sight to behold. I did my vegan coaching up in Harlem, and what a complete experience it was to be immersed in the culture but still be in the city.
