Chicago in July

As the temperature starts to fall and I say farewell to the summer, I'm reminded of a time in the summer that foretold this time. This summer I visited the great city of Chicago.

I went on a stroll to The Battery and got the chance to walk around this amazing neighborhood. Most of these houses are well over 150 years old and have gone through many renovations. Some say [...]

Trip to LA

This year I decided to head to the West Coast to celebrate my birthday. I was my first time visiting the Golden State and I love every moment of it. While there I got the chance to visit Mulholland Drive, the Hollywood walk of fame; I even get a chance to breeze by the Capitol Building. With all of the glitz and excitement of Hollywood, [...]
