Chicago Threadless meetup

Last weekend I was at the Threadless meetup in Chicago. Threadless has an annual meetup at their headquarters there. People from all around the country – and the world – come over, enjoy free stuff and listen to lectures about t-related stuff. Form e it was an opportunity to finally meet a lot of the people I have only met online so far. I found out that all of them are super nice and some collaboration will come out of this meetup.

I also had the chance to see Chicago downtown by myself. I really liked it: The skyscrapers are impressive, the sculptures and architecture too – I like that even though there are highways everywhere, there are still enough safe zones for pedestrians. The museum campus is amazing – the field museum, aquarium and planetarium are all spread over a nice, green area for mainly pedestrians, with a beautiful view at the Chicago skyline. After seeing the planetarium, I rented a bike for an hour and drove around at the shore. Oh, how I have missed comfy bicycling by myself.

Did I mention how much I enjoyed the clean, roommate-less hotel room???!!!
