I booked a new-ish trip! Read all about when and why I’m traveling to Chicago this year.
For those of you who haven’t read about my travel plans: I’ll be in NYC for three weeks this summer. Well, two weeks, because I’ll be traveling to Chicago during my first week in the US. And… my grandpa’s coming with me!
For those of you who don’t know, my grandparents moved to Chicago before my mom was born and stayed there until my mom was about 6 years old. And even though I’ve been to Chicago when I was little, I can’t remember anything about that city. I’ve always wanted to see where my family lived, worked and went to school, so I figured I’d spend my first week in the US in Chicago instead of NYC. When I told my grandpa about this, he was really excited and we decided to travel together.
We’ll be staying in Evanston, my mom’s hometown. I honestly can’t wait to visit Chicago and Evanston and find out more about my family’s history. If you guys have any tips on what to do in Chicago, let me know! You’ll definitely see a Travel Diary video when I’m back!
