Traveler Spotlight: Johnny & Ed

This morning during breakfast, I had the pleasure of meeting Johnny and Ed - two very interesting fellows from the UK.

Johnny and Ed are old friends from university and have been exploring Chicago together for the past week. Johnny is currently on a five month sabbatical and has already visited Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, New York City, and Chicago is his last and final stop on his trip before returning back to his job in Wales at the end of this week. Ed, on the other hand, took a week off work from his job in London to visit Chicago and meet up with Johnny.

They were drawn to Chicago because many of their friends from the UK who previously visited just raved about the city so they were curious to see it for themselves. Since they’re at the very end of their trip (and budgets) they’ve been finding free and cheap things to do around Chicago. So far they’ve visited the Art Institute of Chicago, Improv Olympics comedy show, and Buddy Guy’s Legends Blues Club. Today they’re planning to check out the Museum of Contemporary Photography, attend another improv show, and eat more Chicago-style deep dish pizza. Have fun!
