MI, USA here I come

keep-calm-because-usa-here-i-come

I finally have booked that flight to see my best friend. It’s been 2 years since we graduated at Rochester Cathedral, Kent. The last time I saw her was before she flew home from London, it was her final day trip to Canterbury (20 minutes from my house). It was emotional but the 2-year wait is coming down to its final months.

October 4th, I will be flying out from Heathrow to Chicago, IL for a 6-day adventure across the states of Illinois and Michigan. It is going to be an insane tiring trip, but what could be better than seeing an old friend in a country you love to visit being shown the best her home state has to offer.

We’ve skyped out a route across the grand state of Michigan (see above). Sadly, we will not have enough time to explore the other side of the great lakes, but there is always next time. Some of many activities we are planning (that could be included in this 6 day adventure could include and are not limited to:

  • Lincoln Park Zoo (Chicago)
  • The big bean thing (Chicago)
  • Kalamazoo Celery Flats
  • Kalamazoo Beer Exchange
  • Western Michigan University
  • Kalamazoo Art Institute
  • Football game
  • University of Michigan
  • Sleeping Bear Dunes
  • Mackinaw Island + Ferry
  • Tahquamenon Falls
  • CoAmerica Park
  • Miners Castle Rock
  • Silver Beach

October can not come quick enough!
