The second part of my photo diary instalment features photos from Colorado, Chicago, Nashville and Virginia. We had such a fun time in all four places and such different experiences.
In Colorado we spent more time with my boyfriend’s family and yet again they were kind enough to show us around some brilliant places in the state. First of all we went to Estes Park which is nestled high in the Rocky Mountains, we then visited several breweries including Budweiser and New Belgium.
Our main reason for visiting Chicago was to attend Pitchfork music festival but we did have one day to be tourists around the city. We mainly chilled in Milennium Park because it was too hot to do anything else but it was lovely having a picnic in such a picturesque park.
Nashville was a brilliant place to visit. I had no idea what to expect but was not disappointed when we arrived. It is a fantastic city to absorb county music since it is “music city” but it is also so interesting just to walk about (despite the insane heat!).
Charlottesville, Virginia, was the last place we were hosted by family and we had such an amazing time there. The weather was perfect, sunny but not upsettingly hot, the countryside was beautiful and the food amazing (we ate the best pulled pork I’ve ever tasted). We got to see the Blue Ridge Mountains, the University of Virginia as well as the homes of Jefferson and Mason (which I have already talked about at length in other posts).
