Throwback To My Trip To Kankakee County

Today is Throwback Thursday, where I look back on older photos that I have taken. This was when I wasn’t serious about photography, however, I made a promise that if I get a chance to travel, I will take photos of everything I can. This blog will have affiliate links, it will not cost you anything extra, I will get a commission when you buy any of the items. They are my own recommendations.

I decided to walk around the festival to take photos and videos, I will have a Google Plus share link since I do not have the business upgrade to upload videos. Please note I cannot afford it at the moment. So if you want to watch the vlog, click on this link

In 2013, I did a summer internship with a lady who braided my hair, I also went to Fox River with her, I have a blog post on that, check it out if you’re interested. The lady I worked with had a side business where she sold her merchandise at these festivals. And I helped her set up her stand and she allowed me to have fun for a bit. Keep in mind went to the festival two different times. Sadly I didn’t have anyone to come with me, it would have been fun to have a buddy.

Festival 2

I would love to go back, I would love to get out and about and be free, maybe when I am blogging full time it could happen. I took these photos on a Samsung Galaxy S3, however that phone is obsolete. If you want to get into travel photography, I recommend a camera and an SD card. I prefer this way because you can pop the SD card into your computer to transfer your photos. I also recommend a computer for photography, period.

I took some more photos while sitting at the both. I kinda like being out at night for some reason, I think its cool, its one of my travel goals, I suppose I met the goal a long time ago! I was out until after midnight. Never been out that late besides my prom night ( I might post a throwback blog on that if you’re up for it.)  Follow my photography on instagram, this is where I post my work. I also have a Facebook page, you can follow me if you want, but I highly recommend Instagram since Facebook makes sure fewer people see your posts. I just want to give you other places where I post my photos.

Festival

I like it when the Ferris Wheel lights up at night. I find it pretty neat. 2013 was a good summer, I just wish I had the funds to go places. Living with people who want to sit in the house all day doesn’t help. Not to be rude, I need to be with people who like being out and about. If you would like to buy my work, check out my shop. I am looking for an alternative shop, just because I like to have a backup site in case all goes wrong. I also post my work on Deviantart, so give me a follow on there if you want to.

Throwback To My Trip To Fox River

Back in 2013, I went to Fox River with a lady who braided my hair. She went there to apply for a vacation house there, and I tagged along. It wasn’t really a “mini getaway” since I was her intern for the summer. But least I had fun. Throwback Thursday will only be temporary, once I run out of things worth blogging about, then I will be down to 3xs a week.

Fox

I do have a vlog, it will be a Google Plus share since I need to upgrade my plan to post videos. And the video is no longer online on YouTube since I re-branded my channel.

I’d love to go back to Fox River, for the summer and winter to see what winter activities they have. The tour guild said they have winter activities like sledding.

We went on a tour of the resort, and it is a very nice resort, flip side it there is no cell reception on certain parts, so I wouldn’t be able to post my travel photos. But hey, what good is a vacation if you’re indoors using your electronics and not site seeing and such?

We saw one of the rooms, and I’d have a special way to determined who gets what room if I ever come with a friend. Because part of my travel goals is a good room to stay in, with a view, views are nice!

The bathroom looks nice, I always wanted a bathroom in my room, maybe when I am blogging full time, I can make it happen. There is a toilet in there, its separate from the bath and sick I think.

It has a playground, I did get on it while the adults were taking care of business. Now I wasn’t serious about photography back then, but I made a vow if I get a chance to travel I will take photos if I have a chance to and properly vlog, like vlog when i am about to leave, on the way there, arriving etc.

There is a patio, now this is goals for sure. I’d step out at night even because that is also goals in my book. I might make a blog in regards to my travel goals, things I wanna experience when traveling. Hopefully, when I am a full-time blogger I can travel. I wanna be able to travel the world. I can’t do that working a regular job! You don’t get that many vacation days a year or whatever. Even if I was able to find a job, all I can do is part-time, and I wouldn’t be able to save up to travel, it will take forever vs if I make sat $500+ a month with affiliate links, selling my photos etc

This bed looks nice. Isn’t it?

So, I hope I get more travel opportunities, I will take photos like there is no tomorrow if I get to. I will post some travel blogs, I feel it fits Saturday’s theme which is verity.

Anyways I hope you enjoyed the blog. I could use a getaway!

My Quick Trip To Indiana

I had a mini travel opportunity, and I kept my word and vlogged it and took photos, however, I didn’t go anywhere but Walmart. Because my aunt was not familiar with the part of Indiana we were in. hello inI went to Indiana earlier this month. My folks wanted to see if it will be cheaper to buy groceries in Indiana. And because greedy Cook County started taxing any drink that has sugar. However, we couldn’t find the stores we normally shop at. But least  I got out of Illinois for a few hours. I was sick of being in Illinois.

This is the first travel vlog/blog that  I did in a while.

We got stuck at the bridge that goes up when the big boats pass. What are these called?

I got a photo of the power lines, I think these transformer powerlines are cool.

More powerlines and we left the Walmart.

I had breakfast, looks good, right? So that’s all I have right now. I would love to travel more often, it sounds like fun! Maybe we will go to an area my aunt knows about and I can do a lot more.
