  2. I've been loving the vlogs so much because I recently found out I'll be doing exchange in Chicago! The city looks amazing!!

  3. Hi Joan!!! It’s 8 degree celcius and you’re looking so good!! I would have just looked like a lumpy mess if it’s that cold. Could you give us some tips of how to layers clothes in winter? That would be realllllllly helpful!! Thanks Joan and I’m loving all your uploads so far!!!! 🥰🥰

  4. Lol this is so weird 😂 I’m watching a vlog that I can actually relate to~ (also portillos is a must on a Chicago trip)

  5. Joan, Abe looks a lot like your dad. And Joan looks like her mom. What a wonderful family❤️👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🏠

  6. Thanks for sharing your Chicago experience, Joan 😍 it's amazing how you and Abe look so similar yet he looks a lot like your dad and you've got your mom's beauty 😻🤗

  7. Everyone says Christmas in Korea is pretty but Christmas overseas is so much homier and cozy 💖💖💖 I love you and Abe and yay leica

  8. Abe, did you try the chocolate cake shake at Portillo's? Ahhh I wish I could have given you a list of places to check out!

  9. Chicago is one of my favorite cities that I’ve ever visited. (Let’s be honest here I haven’t traveled much) but I had so much fun but I regret not trying Chicago style pizza. I really want to go again and maybe plan out where I want to go more.

  10. I missed CHICAGO sooooo bad and this vlog really really reminded me the time that I spent in Chicago. LOVE IT! And super excited that it starts to have subtitles in the vlog!!!!

  11. OMG so I want to that pizzeria when I was in Chicago with some friends and we all didn’t like but I think that we didn’t like it because there was a lot of people and it took them 1 hour to sit us down and 3 hours to get are food

  12. Hi Joan, how do you like your Leica camera? I'm thinking of investing in one but not sure if it's worth it… Thank you and have fun traveling!

  13. Am I the only one seeing the 50% off anything window! I could never just pass it without walking in🙈. Love you Joan!

  14. Abe: that’s so bad for you. You’re so lactose
    Joan: but we asked for less cheese
    // employee cuts pizza and transfers to plate //
    Me: yo that’s not less cheese 😂

  15. It's so amazing having to see you vlog about the places I'm so familiar with. I'm glad you're enjoying Chicago, I always say that o matter where you come from, we'll always make you feel at home <3

  16. Yesss Portillo's is the best! I always get Italian beef and strawberry shortcake (it’s sooooo good)! I go if I’m ever in Chicago or Cali! It’s so cool seeing try some of my favorite food places 😭💕

  17. i always find it so interesting when people (especially youtubers i watch) film themselves exploring chicago. i’ve lived here my entire life so it’s to fascinating to see an outsiders point of view haha

  18. "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." John 3:36 Whoever is reading this know that Jesus Christ loves you, you are precious to Him. He suffered a humiliating death on the cross of calvary while bearing the sin of the entire world in His body. If you believe in Him and turn from your sin, you will live forever. There is no coincidence you are reading this my friend, GOD is calling you back home. Eternity awaits us all, where will you spend it?

  19. Recommendation from a Chicagoan is to come back in the summer and take the river walk!!!! Its amazing as one of my favorite things about the city is how many trees there are.

  20. Lou malnatti's house salad is yummy too. And the pesto pasta dish 😍😅😅😅 and when you said popcorn did you go to garrett's?? 😅😅😅

  21. Art Institute has free admission on thursdays.. the museums have a lot of free museum days which they post every now and again

  22. Nice video! Subscribe to out channel as we are a Chicago vlog couple here to provide good ideas for what to do in this city!
