Daydreaming: Chicago By Boat

Thursday, July 28, 2011

This morning I stumbled upon this awesome time-lapse video of a day long trip on Lake Michigan and I instantly thought of Balazs. A few years back he took a boat trip similar to this one while visiting friends in Chicago. So now, I’m daydreaming about spending a day getting lost with my thoughts while the cool breeze is playing with my hair and the lights of the ever-busy city are twinkling away. Wanna join me? Have you ever been to Chicago before? How did you like it? xo

P.S: Don' miss the video!

Oh Chicago...it really is pretty great to see the city by boat. This video makes me excited for the weekend because I'm going to spend it on a boat, drinking beer and laughing with family. There won't be the Chicago skyline in the distance but it still works for me!

Oh! I'm dying to visit Chicago! A friend recently visit and said it's wonderful. It's a good idea to get on a boat, you get to see the city in a different way.

Meagan, that sounds like a great weekend ahead! Have fun:)

Monica, totally true! Balazs visited Chicago a few times before but the time he took the boat tour he really experienced the city in a whole new way. He loved it:)

Chicago is my favorite city! We lived there for a few years for Z's grad school, but it wasn't until right before we left that we took a boat tour. Here's a link to the post I did about it: http://zhparris.blogspot.com/2010/08/in-which-we-took-boat-tour.html

Wonderful!! I adore Chicago. It's such a clean city and has great culture and shopping. The only negative are the very cold winters!!

I love Chicago, I lived there for a few years after High School (I went to columbia college for a hot minute). It is so clean, and gorgeous. The parks are wonderful, the people are nice... the food is yummy.. The lake is glorious and the cost of living there is reasonable. I had a friend who worked for the riverboat city tours so we would go all the time, drink wine.. look at the pretty lights... mmm, now I miss it. Thanks for sharing. :)

Been to Chicago 3 times -- love it! Definitely a great city. Feels small & comfortable, but with all the benefits of a big city!

So true, quintessence and Ryan, how lucky that you had a friend who worked for the riverboat city tours. It's like a dream come true!

Diana Mieczan said...

We took the boat tour in Paris as well, Anna. It was magical, wasn't it? Which one did you go for..the night or the daytime one?
