Chicago – A mini-cation

As we approach the end of the summer, Amy and I decided to take one last summer vacation (or ‘baecation’) as a way to take advantage of the long Labor Day weekend. Strangely enough, these short weekend vacations are considered a thing where they have an actual name called “Micro-cations” and apparently it’s the newest Millenial travel trend.

“These short getaways are basically like taking long weekends in lieu of extended vacation time, kind of like a mini-moon without the wedding”

It’s considered a good strategy for people that don’t have a lot of PTO to spare (like myself currently) to go to different places in short amounts of time, therefore maximizing our weekends.

So why Chicago?

Chicago was always on my radar to visit, albeit low on the list compared to places like Asheville, NC. Unlike the small town of Asheville, travel costs to Chicago was significantly less and therefore it was a good excuse to spend the weekend there.

Chicago has a rich history of the roaring ‘20s with the beautiful art-deco architecture, a food scene known for their deep dish pizzas and neighborhoods that offer their own unique feel.

Photos were taking with the Leica M-P (Typ 240) and the new Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4 II MC.
