¡HELLO! Welcome, I’m Richard…

I’m a Chicago-based travel writer and solo traveler. I started this blog to share my solo travel experiences and tips with the world. My goal is to help other travelers navigate the Windy City like a pro, whether they’re traveling solo or with a group. 

From finding the best restaurants and attractions to planning day trips and itineraries, I’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to make the most of your time in Chicago!

More About Me

Delving deeper into my story, I’m not just any travel enthusiast – Chicago is my home, my playground, and my muse. My love for this city goes beyond the deep-dish pizza and iconic skyline. 

I’ve spent years exploring its neighborhoods, from the historic streets of the Loop to the vibrant murals in Pilsen, each corner of the city offers a story, and I’ve made it my mission to uncover and tell them all.

I believe that travel is more than just seeing new places; it’s about experiencing them. Every step through Chicago is a step through a rich tapestry of culture, history, and innovation. 

My travels have taken me from the tranquil paths of the Chicago Botanic Garden to the bustling corridors of the Willis Tower, and every journey has been a lesson in diversity and discovery.

Before I became a full-time travel writer, I worked in a variety of roles that helped me hone my skills in storytelling and photography – essential tools that I now use to bring my travel tales to life.

 I’m also an avid learner, continuously updating my knowledge about the city’s offerings, new and old, so that my advice and insights remain fresh and relevant.

Through this blog, I extend an invitation to you to join me in experiencing Chicago in a way that only a local can show you. I’m here to guide you through the ins and outs of solo travel in the city, but more importantly, to inspire you to create your own adventures in this incredible metropolis.

Whether you’re here for the world-class museums, eclectic food scene, or the lakefront’s natural beauty, I’m here to ensure your solo travel journey in Chicago is unforgettable. So, grab your favorite travel mug, fill it with some strong Chicago brew, and let’s embark on this journey together.

Welcome to my Chicago. Let’s explore!
