Illinois is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States. It has the fifth largest gross  domestic product, the sixth largest population… {}

I know I got side tracked from my  online travels stories , but I haven’t stopped thinking about it. My next stop is Illinois and I can’t wait to see what I find. [it is 6:50pm July 30th, 2021 and after finally fixing a problem on my site ‘wished I had gotten the 3rd person’s name, because he or she was the only 1 who was able to help me’ anyway all I want to do now  is crochet and watch an anime. Tomorrow is another day…..

**Sun 8/1/2021 at 6:38pm –  I have been through at least five cities within the state of Illinois before I found a video that wasn’t talking about retirement. I watched a long video about Galena, Illinois. It had a lot of information, and showed a nice quiet town. Okay, I finally found something and then came the cuss word towards the end, and no way.

I honestly want to work on a different project, but I want to show something from Illinois. There has to be a good video out there…..

Naperville is known for its downtown district and riverwalk. The riverwalk is 1.75 miles  located along the West Branch of the DuPage River. Come join our family as we check out the stores, restaurants, and unique statutes. {}

#2 Now this video actually had me wanting to go there, to take that walk along the riverwalk.

** It is almost 7:30pm and I just realized I haven’t eaten dinner yet and one has to get ready to get back into reality knowing another work week is about to start. I will look one more time for some more videos, otherwise there will just be the two…

8/5/2021 I am so bored with Illinois, but I don’t want to give up on it. I wasn’t going to go to Chicgo, because I only liked the movie hahaha. I just don’t care for their basketball team. I will see if I find something there that catches my intention.

Okay, nothing that makes me want to go there. I came across this website if you wanted to get where to go etc etc.. Time to go online and see if I can find a video, before I close out this  state, and move on…

#3 Yes, I am smiling, because I like this video. The buildings remind me of home,(NY) but by the water it looked like a cool place to walk. I may not want to go there, but it was a good video. I am grateful there wasn’t a word about their basketball team.

** Then again I do like their baseball team. Yes, I like the Chicago Clubs, as long as they are not playing the New York Yankees, because I am always a Yankees girl. 

I am sorry this will be my shortest trip, because I am so over Illinois –

#4 I didn’t really want to close out my story with just three videos and Western Springs is a city in Illinois. It mostly had trains and although I like trains (especially the ones in Europe) I came across this video and although I had no idea what it was about. My first thought was how brave these young people were to be on stage and I wanted to see what they were going to do. It was a nice song. I am sure there is a meaning unbeknown to me, but I was HAPPY listening to it. 

** I believe I can leave Illinois knowing there were a few places and sounds I liked.

**A second thought. I will not say anything else about this video, but just in case someone wanted to know what  video got me upset a little. This is it:
