Chicago during World Series

I was visiting Chicago for the weekend from New York. I had been to Chicago a few times before. But this time around, the atmosphere in Chicago was different. The energy was different. Game 5 of the World Series was at Wrigley Field. Games 3 and 4 had been played at Wrigley Field in the past two days.

To get the experience of a lifetime, we decided to visit Wrigley Field on Sunday, October 30th. Getting off the train was a struggle as hundreds of people were on the station. Walking around the ball park, you had a chance to experience all the excitement of the game that was about to take place tonight inside Wrigley Field. Throngs of people stood below the Wrigley Field sign and took pictures. People were buying Chicago Cubs gear left and right. We walked into a sporting goods store opposite of the ball park and there was literally no place to move. People were grabbing anything that had the Cubs logo on it. Back on the street, there was one guy handing around posters that read Make Someday Today. I also took home a poster as a souvenir. We spent more than two hours walking around the ball park to fully experience being in that moment of history.

Chicago Cubs would go on to win the next three games including Game 7 against the Cleveland Indians to clinch the MLB World Series.

SmarTravel

We travel from one place to another. Before we go on a trip or an adventure, we pack up things that we believe are the most important essentials needed for that occasion. How you pack, what you pack and when you pack depends on your personality, preference, time etc.

I usually like to get started early when going on a trip. When I pack a few things on my suitcase, I feel like I’ve started the packing process and on my way to finishing it soon. The later I start, the more I feel like I will miss out on packing something important. ┬áSome of the travel hacks that I used for a recent trip came from these websites:
