Do you ever feel like you just need to literally drive somewhere far away and get a feel for new scenery for a day?
I do! All the time actually.
Most people think that there is something wrong when I try to explain this to them. So no, I am not running away from anything and maybe I just like being alone sometimes!
Lately, i’ve been working 40-50 hour weeks at the day job and although I took spring/summer off of school it is still kind of stressful.
Which is why I took a mini day trip to Canada!:
Needless to say I have been enjoying my summer so far and it’s not even June! Lots of changes have been happening and I still can’t decide weather or not I will continue to blog. I absoultley HATE wordpress’s new layout, I do not deal well with change!
Do you ever take mini trips alone?
First off, let me say this:
Whoever voted Chicago the vegan-friendlist city in the US needs to check them self! As an always prepared vegan, you know that I always pack food on trips. Because I figured that I wouldn’t have a problem finding food in Chicago I only packed 3 overnight oats for breakfast (Plus, I was on vacation and was not afraid to spend extra money on good food). But finding vegan food in the city was actually quite the challenge.
The 5-hour drive to Chicago was actually quite relaxing. Traffic was good, weather was good, our first meal was REALLY good.
FALAFEL SUB AT SUBWAY! We stopped at a gas station to get gas and eat because there was a Subway inside. Little did I know that little town carried the falafel sub. It was sooo good! I didn’t get the cucumber sauce because I figured it wasn’t vegan.
For two nights we were there we went to seafood buffet for dinner. I obviously didn’t eat seafood but my brother did! I had endless bowls of miso soup, noodles, fruit, and veggie sushi. I tried some weird things though!
The white ball is steamed bread! It was actually good!
I love veggie sushi!
But like I said, finding vegan food in the city was a challenge. I settled for mexican food the first day.
We must have walked over 10 miles in just the first day. Us country folk didn’t even think about taking a bus anywhere. :/
On our way home, I made one last request to stop at the famous
Holllly cow. These were the best things I’ve ever ate. Even the omi-brother loved them!
I also ordered a pesto/ranch style chick’n sammich! So good.
My favorite place yet!
Have you ever been to the Chicago Diner?
As promised, pictures from my chicago trip!:
A little random trip with just the brother and I, totally needed a mini vacation!
A hippy’s dream come true (I dont have a local lush!)
This too, yummy!
The brother on a mission
Coming soon —-> Part 2: THE FOOD!
Have you ever been to Chicago? If yes, what was your favorite thing about the city?
Anybody out there?
It’s getting quite lonely around this place!
I might not have time for daily posts these days but I definitely think about you guys all the time! I just wanted to drop in and tell you that I will be going to Chicago on Monday for a few days! I am so excited because I have never been there! I hear it’s like Vegan Heaven!
Anywho, if you have any suggestions on places to go/see/eat, please let me know!
Also, if you’re interesting in a CHICAGO blogger meet up I’d love that too!
Mmmm. What a great midweek treat! Fresh chips with rice, black beans, roasted veggies, tofu, and a grain and veggie salad. Perfect lunch!
What’s new with me?
School and work is taking up about 80% of my life right now (as usual!) The other 20% of my time is being shared with family, friends, eating, Zumba fitness, The Big Bang Theory (new favorite show), and very rarely blog reading. I miss you guys!
Do you watch The Big Bang Theory?
If so, who is you’re favorite character?
I like all of them but obviously Sheldon is my favorite!
