Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Chicago anymore. That’s right, folks. I made the move to Kansas City, MO. So far it’s been a blast with all the concerts, bike rides, breweries, farmers’ markets, and First Fridays. Get a feel for this mid-sized city as you scroll through the photos below. And if you’re already familiar with the area, give me tips on what to do there next. Cheers!
Nuremberg is a sweet little German town, surrounded by an old city gate and a few rivers. Perhaps I shouldn’t say little because it happens to be the second largest city in Bavaria, just after Munich. It dates back to the Middle Ages, 1050 to be exact. It’s been ravaged by the plague and home to much cultural growth during the Renaissance. Nuremberg was a hot spot during WWII, and almost completely bombed to smithereens. You may also remember it as […]
Maybe you remember that I was in Munich for Oktoberfest. Well, I got to go back and spend a little more time in the beautiful city. Of course, I made my way to the original Hofbrauhaus. It dates back to the 16th century and smelled a bit of barf, understandably so. There are plenty of little outdoor shops to peruse during the day in The Viktualienmarkt. And you can get a great view of the city if you climb the bell […]
Amsterdam is one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations. You can see why in my previous posts about the beautiful city (here, here, and here). What most people don’t know is that there is a beautiful place in South Holland, only 40 minutes away from Amsterdam by train, that has much to offer as well. Yes, I’m talking about you, Rotterdam. This riverside city is home to Europe’s largest port. You’ll find it shockingly different from Amsterdam. That is largely […]
It’s often said that black and white photography creates a sense of timelessness. I love to take a photo full of people and indicators, turn it black and white, and watch as it transforms into a completely different piece of art. Most of the time I even consider making this alteration to a picture, it’s one I’ve taken in Chicago. I’m not sure why that is–perhaps it’s because I live here and I want to see my home differently. Take […]
I got to go on quick tour of Downtown Denver a few weeks ago. The city is littered with art and interesting architecture–which I love! Here are some of my findings. (Keep your eyes open for similarities I photographed between some of the structures and my mesh sneakers.) Dancers is a steel and fiberglass statue by Jonathan Borofsky. The couple stands outside of the Denver Performing Arts Complex. It was created in an effort to demonstrate, “everything is connected and all is […]
This was the first time I’ve spent much time in Brooklyn. Ya know, it feels a lot like Chicago (with a great bonus view of Manhattan). That being said, I really enjoyed it! On this trip, I busted out my Winter Roshes and a Nike Dry Fit Hoodie.
I have thus declared October my adventure month of 2015. I’ll be traveling so much that I want to soak up what little time I have in Chicago. It’s been quite lovely here–I just had to share these shots with you. Now off I go! (p.s. Happy 500th Post from for-the-love-of-nike!!!!!)
Tinsley House in Bozeman, MT is over 100 years old, and life goes on about as if no time has passed since the day it was built. The entire structure was moved from its original location of Willow Creek so it could be near the Museum of the Rockies. A staff, dressed in the traditional garb of the day, runs the homestead. Fresh pies are baked daily, a metal smith and carpenter are on staff, maintaing the property, and the […]
