360 Views- That Big City Chicago

Well, I just love a big city. And nothing beats the views from the 94th floor inside the Hancock Center. It is the best view, by far, in Chicago. The price tag on this view is a bit expensive. About $22 (including tax) for adults over the age of 12. However, there are coupons all

Straight Outta Venezia !

Rainy days in Venezia. Bridges, bridges galore ! The “City of Canals,” just in case you were wondering. It’s illegal to drive in Venice. But don’t worry, you can take a water taxi through and around the entire city! “Gothic” style architecture takes your breath away. As I walked the cobble stone streets, I was

En amour avec Bourges.

Bourges, France is about 2 hours south of Paris by train. The train ride costs approximately 32 Euro each way (coach of course). I walked into a town and immediately fell in love. Not just with the town but with the historic buildings, the people walking hand and hand, all of the luscious green trees

The seashells would keep their problems and if you took the seashells, you would be taking their problems home with you. I happily left all the seashells on the beach while I

Florence, Italy. What is there to say about such a beautiful city. It was my first stop on my first European solo adventure.

Roaming En Roma

The city of Rome is one very unique in it’s likeness. You have the history of all the old buildings and architecture that captivates the tourists.
