USA 2015

Not long after I turned 22, I hopped on a plane heading to the States with one of my favourite travel companions (my dad).  This isn’t my first time to America, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel there on multiple occasions, but this would be the first time heading to Minneapolis.  Why Minneapolis, well a part from the appeal of I’ve never been there before, I have another very dorky reason – The Supernatural Convention was on so we combined that with a road trip through America and it became the trip I’d always hoped for, and more.

We headed to Green Bay, Wisconsin leaving Minneapolis, we hired this beautiful red & shiny Mustang and cruised down the highway. After one night crashed out in Green Bay we headed to Milwaukee (where I saw One Direction perform, fan girl moment) and we did a bit of exploring and shopping, it was a much bigger town than Green Bay but nothing compared to what we were heading in to, Chicago.

Chicago, what a city, a place with some of the best museums, shopping, restaurants, shows, views, what more could you need to help you fall hopelessly in love with this city.
We had dinner in one of the tallest buildings in Chicago, and we had a window seat which was apparently perfect viewing for the fireworks display they hold during summer, however there was only fog surrounding the building, but we didn’t mind because the food was so good. Roughly 5 minutes before the fireworks display  was scheduled to start, the fog started the magically life and sitting on top of Chicago, I felt like a fairy in Neverland.

We also dinned at RPM Italian, Giuliana & Bill Rancics’ restaurant which was amazing, we even got to see Bill & their son Duke make an appearance.
If you’re thinking of heading to Chicago – DO IT, you won’t regret, it’s one of those places that once you leave you already want to go back. If you are planning a visit though, a few must see’s are the Field Museum and the Million Dollar Quartet show.

 From Chicago, we navigated through airports and hoped on busses until we finally got to our hotel with a view that displayed the magnificence of Niagara Falls.
It takes your breath away, the volume of water and the natural beauty of it, it definitely is one of nature’s most powerful resources, we took the boat right up in the midst of the Falls and you can hear it, if power had a voice it would sound like Niagara Falls.
 
We were only there a couple of days, but managed to do everything you can do in Niagara Falls including seeing Harry Connick Jnr at the Casino and almost winning (emphasis on the almost).
It was the halfway mark in my 4 week American adventure and it was time to head to the City that never sleeps, New York City Baby.
I could write forever about New York, but I’ll try to keep this as brief as possible. If you’ve been following our Instagram journey you probably already know what went down where and when but for those of you that haven’t, I met my other favourite travel companion and it was our time to shop, and boy did we shop.

I could have shopped twice as much but I would be broke and would not have enough space in my luggage and there was still lots more to see & do.

There’s a certain feeling having High Tea at the Plaza and browsing through Saks 5th Avenue, you really feel like you’re rubbing shoulders with the best of them and I sure could get used to that.

 While we were in New York, we did the typical bus tour, strolled around Soho, took a bike ride through Central Park, posed out front of the iconic Friends fountain, dinned at the Boathouse on Central Park, shopped some more, saw Matilda and The Lion King which both blew my mind, had room service, a trip to Tiffany’s & Loubiton walked a lot, shopped a bit more.

New York is exactly what you would expect, it’s a cit that always keeps you awake and hungry for life.
(pssttt in case you missed one of our previous posts we attended New York Fashion Week – check out our events page!)

After the hustle and bustle day and night it was time for the next stop on our trip, Vegas baby!
It was the reunion we had been counting down for, for months if not a year! Alexis & I finally teamed up again in the party capital of America for her bachelorette party and that is where I leave you.
To be continued….
