Travel: A trip down memory lane

Last-minute we decide to hit the road from Chicago to St. Louis, Missouri and visit Springfield, Illinois on our way back.

Why St. Louis?
As a trip down memory lane…
although I don’t recall anything from my first trip, 39 years ago when we used to live in St. Louis for 10 months.

St. Louis touristy stuff:

  • Gateway Arch
  • Old Courthouse
  • City Garden with public sculptures
  • Laclede Landing’s neighborhood
  • Anheuser-Busch beer experience
  • Broadway Oyster Bar
  • Light show in Union Station’s Grand Hall
  • 4Hand Brewery
  • LaFayette Square with Victorian Houses
  • Soulard’s Farmers Market

St. Louis Route 66 stuff:

  • lunch at Crown Candy Kitchen
  • Walk over the old Chain of Rock Bridge with a famous 20° bend

St. Louis memory lane:

  • Near and under Gateway Arch
  • Tasting Budweiser, bwwhh
  • In front of our apartment building

Why Springfield?
It’s the capitol of Illinois…
although Chicago is wayyyy bigger and it’s the place where president Lincoln spent his entire career before becoming a president and allegedly it could be the hometown of the Simpsons….

  • Frank Lloyd Wright’s Dana-Thomas House
  • The Capitol of the State Illinois
  • Lincoln’s museum: a must!

Last -minute getaways are the best!

    Skype has established its internet-centered buyer beta on the
    world, right after establishing it generally from the United states and You.K.
    earlier this 30 days. Skype for Internet also now facilitates Chromebook and Linux for instant messaging conversation (no voice
    and video yet, those demand a plug-in installation).

    The increase of the beta adds assist for a longer selection of different
    languages to assist strengthen that overseas functionality
