Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world. - Gustav Flaubert
Traveling for me puts things into perspective. It allows me to realize that there are far bigger things that my problems. So what if the wifi is slow or if my favorite ramen place is closed. Traveling allows you to see that the world is not always about you. It allows me to see how other people live and what they have to deal with on a daily basis.
Cloud Gate in Chicago, IL is one of the most stunning piece of art in the world. It mirrors all sides of your surrounding. It is considered an iconic landmark where every tourist embraced. You must visit this place. #wintergetaway
#chicago has always been one of my favorite places to visit in the #midwest #usa. The Windy City is home to so many fun places to visit. When in Chicago, you have to visit Cloud Gate at Millenium Park (aka ‘the Bean’). Walk along Lakeshore Drive to see beautiful views of Lake Michigan. Check our Navy Pier and ride the Ferris Wheel, or go shopping along Michigan Avenue. Don’t forget to try Chicago deep dish pizza!
Chicago photo must-have card - Cloud Gate
Chicago's big silver beans have a nice name "Cloud Gate." Cloud Gate's creations are inspired by free-flowing mercury, whose mirrored surface maps Chicago's beautiful city skyline, designed by Anish Kapoor. Located in Chicago's Millennium Park, Cloud Gate is the first choice for tourists who come to Chicago to take photos. Stepping into the center of the sculpture, you can feel it twists the same space, as if the sculpture has turned from a solid to a liquid, and it is flowing slowly. Especially at the bottom of the streamlined arch called the "navel", there are multiple reflective surfaces, and the selfie is really creative here. Whether it's a new sunrise above the Cloud Gate or a colorful "bean" illuminated by the night lights, you can't help but pick up the camera and keep shooting.
I don't understand art. I also think that this bean is really very artistic. It really consolidates the reputation of Chicago's urban public art and becomes one of the symbols of the city.
This building consists of 168 plates, each 1 cm (0.4 in) thick, seamlessly welded together and weighs 100 tons. Even if I look close, I still can't see any gaps. It is really amazing.
