On the lighter side-Travel-Chicago, Illinois
Actually to the suburbs of Chicago but it is still Chicago. Well as it was my niece's wedding, we decided to take a road trip instead of a plane trip to save money to Chicago. We had never had this more than thirteen hour trip by road before and we were not that excited about it either but if you want to save money and enjoy the scenery (mostly money), nothing beats a road trip. Well anyway our stays was at the Hilton® Hotel in Bloomingdale, a suburb of Chicago (please note that I am not here to promote the hotel, just telling you the facts), and since my niece's wedding was also to be solemnized there, we were given a discount (along with other guest of the wedding party). And since our checking time was around 4.00 P.M on Sunday, we decided to be as near to that time and started our journey at midnight. But before that I had a three hour nap so that I can navigate and drive my vehicle in the dead of night. My wife did all the packing and to keep us all fed put some takeout food and other snacks in the car so that we can eat while driving. Packing is really the fun part that I outsource to my wife since I don’t have the patience to think about what to pack (although I do put my own stuff in the bags). I woke up at about 10.30 P.M. and after putting the two bags in the car, we started our long journey at about 12.15 P.M.
