Adventure Update from oggy ogbourne

Oggy & Friends Go West

Here's the news about Oggy you have all been waiting for, travelling on from Michigan last Wednesday 20 May your favourite bear has travelled further west than ever before and has now arrived in the windy city of Chicago.

\r\n

The internal flight went well and we arrived around midday in 80 degree heat although there was a cooling breeze, after lunch on the way we headed off for the city centre and our hotel accommodation, our room is on the 16th floor of a 24 storey hotel.

\r\n

Today 21st May with the limited time we have in Chicago we decided to fit in as much as possible in one day so we started with a 30 minute boat trip along the shoreline of Lake Michigan then followed that with a one hor boat trip on the river.

\r\n

Stopping for refreshments first & something to eat we then set off for at trip on the 150ft high McDonalds Ferris Wheel and finally took a two hour bus trip around the city, following all that I was exhausted and was glad when I was able to get back to the hotel and crashed out while my two companions went off for an evening meal.

\r\n

The temptation during our stay in the US has been to over indulge in food and drink but I have managed to eat sensibly and maintain my weight and figure which between you and me my travelling companions have been unable to do and I think they will need to diet on their return home. 

\r\n

Tomorrow 22nd May is our last day therefore my last update will be posted following our return home, look out for the photos which will be added on our return as long as Andrew can understand what to do, it took him half of our holiday to understand how to place a "blog" on the website. Still they have bothg been good to me and taken me everywhere so I can't complain.

\r\n

I look forward to seeing you all again at the pub.
