My Oct Get Away

Finally going to leave the city for more than a day or two. About time! Read an article in the Uniqlo magazine about New York and totally agreed with the author. I will try to quote some of the essay here later.

What to do oh what to do!? I've decided to take a week off of the work, which is necessary since I've been in school/work mode without as much as a mini-vacation. Unless you count the graduation I attended in DC in May which was fun but also hectic. Not to mention slightly chilly.

Here's the brief:
DC for 2 days
Chicago for 4 days.
Some travel time involved too, of course, such as train and plane.

I've never visited Chicago before so this will be a fun experience. The whole planning process is taking my energy and making me look forward to the trip a lot more. I did purchase a Top 25 Chicago guide with pretty pictures and a separate map. I think I will be doing a lot of photo/walking/adventuring. For some reason the guide book's section on food was not too impressive. Sausages and deep dish pizzas? I don't know, don't I already get awesome pizza and sausages here? We will see. I'm sure I'll find something good.

DC will always hold a special place in my heart. It's almost like a comforting zone for me to get away from NYC and to reconnect with my undergrad days. I know the metro, I know the museums, and I also know M St. Not to mention my beloved Healy Clocktower and beautiful Dahlgren Courtyard. Can't wait to see them again!
