A Broke Spring Break: The Finale

My final day in Chicago has taught me a lot. From sore feet to rumbling bellies, sometimes life is full of compromises.

Take the initiative, experience the world.

Amazing architecture, a bustling city life, and so much to do for free has me hooked already. I wonder where the next several days will take me!

However, its flawed execution and ridiculous price made the idea seem questionable.
