Cloud Gate, aka The Bean, is one of my favourite spots in Chicago so of course I had to get a photo taken there doing tree pose. I have a small collection of photos of me doing yoga poses around the world and I try to add to it each time I go on a trip. Last time I was in Chicago it was half lotus in the glass box at SkyDeck, 1300′+ over the city. Do you have any photos traditions when you travel?
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love getting a deal. I’m pretty sure I get this from my mother’s side of the family. I shop the sale racks of higher end clothing stores and always search for a discount coupon before buying online. Getting a hotel room for 62% off normal rates has me stoked. Getting lots of bang for my buck with Travel Pony.
It’s been awhile since my last adventure when I went horseback riding in the Rockies, hiked through Johnston Canyon, and got lost in a corn maze in Lethbridge. Today I’m off to Chicago: the land of deep dish pizza, beautiful architecture and an alien spacecraft cool works of public art.
When I was planning my few solo days in Southern Alberta I knew of the big guns: Calgary, Banff, Lake Louise. I hadn’t known about Johnston Canyon until a few weeks before I left, despite it being one of the busiest trails in the area. As soon as I saw pictures though I knew it had to make it onto my itinerary.
