I'm On A Boat!
Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a nice long weekend! It's always nice to get those extra days to spend time with family and friends along with eating your weight in barbecue (I love barbecue). A fun fact about me, I have lived my entire life in Illinois, but I've lived in Chicago about only 4 years now. I love Chicago, it's massive buildings, it's great food, and it's fascinating history.
Buildings and architecture has always been fascinating to me so I was delighted when I got invited to do a architecture tour last Friday! I recommend everyone doing one of these cruises, it was breath-taking to see all the beautiful buildings from the Chicago river. I did a night cruise, we sailed off around 7:30, however, if that is a bit past your bedtime there are other times you can do as well. Not only do you get to see amazing sights but you have a wonderful tour guide who can let you know everything about how it was built and how it came to be.
The best part was watching the sunset as it hit all the beautiful parts of the building. The volunteer who told us about the history was so passionate about what she does. It was like she was retelling a fairy-tale and we were huddled over a campfire reliving it. Just to prove her dedication during the middle of the cruise it started heavily raining. Not only did the volunteer continue to tell the story (on the top deck) but she kept everyone entertained as they bought their drinks and made their way to the lower level. Despite the rain I still got to see some of the amazing buildings from below deck. I also got to meet so many interesting people who did this cruise for multiple reasons. I had a couple standing to my left, teens with their family standing to my right, and the cutest elderly couple in front of me. It's nice to see so many different people coming together because they are passionate about learning some history!
Of course you want to be colorful and comfortable when you do an exciting event like this. Therefore, I decided to wear a highlighter teal romper from Tobi. I love the criss-cross design on the back and how it has a cute little cutout in the front. It's perfect for a cruise like this and drinks after. I found this romper on sale on poshmark, check it out!
I recommend everyone attending one of these amazing architecture tours. It's always interesting to see the foundation that makes our city such a magnificent one. Besides, we're always allowed some touristy adventures now and again. I am linking the schedule down below! Let me know your favorite part of the tour!
