I've come to realize that my experience with travel has been an extremely personal one. I think one of the reasons for this is my sense of personal connection to a city, it's as if the city reflects me. People move, people change, life moves, life changes. The city always keeps going both day and night. When I capture a picture of the city it almost feels like I'm capturing a moment of myself and perhaps I am in a sense.💭🏙️
One of my favorite things while in chicago was to try out new and different restaurants, and chicago has many! I had a lovely time trying out this Mediterranean restaurant called @rotimodernmed they have a few different eat in spots in chicago and they offer some yummy salad bowls and fresh ingredients, makes me want to travel to Europe! 🥙😋#foodthatlovesyouback#roti#johnnywhatagentleman
I don’t know about you but the algorithm game and constant updates on Instagram has really affected visibility and engagement on my posts. Sometimes it can be very discouraging, but this is still the platform for connecting with people from across the world and building friendships, and then maybe if we are lucky, meeting in person. This is my friend Eric @mrmosk, who lives in New Zealand, and who is so enamored with shots of Chicago on Instagram that he came to check them out in person! I am having a ton of fun showing him around the skyscrapers, the fire escapes, L trains, and his favorite, abandoned buildings.
