Travel Diary: How We Spent Spring Break

Working in the Unison studio and office every day is so inspiring and fun. But we couldn’t pass up the chance to duck out for a week over spring break this year. The idea of warmer temperatures and new scenery (besides snow!) sounded really good after a long Chicago winter.

Our Founder/Designer Alicia Rosauer and Marketing Manager Daisy Hoeft packed their all-weather bags and headed out to Florida and Tennessee, respectively. They were so excited about their trips that they shared some vacation pics here. Scroll down to check them out.

Alicia’s Trip: Hobe Sound, Florida

The Sunshine State delivered on its promise. There was lots of sun and fun for Alicia, her husband Robert Segal (Unison’s other founder), and their two daughters.

A soft sand beach gave views as far as the eye could see of the crystal waters of Saint Lucie Inlet.
Modernism follows Alicia and Robert wherever they go! Here is a cool shot of The Kimpton hotel in Palm Beach — a Cubist gem with spotless glass reflecting the palm trees.
Back at the beach! (How could they possibly stay away?)
Spring break is all about simple pleasures. So taking advantage of those cool ocean breezes to fly a kite was definitely in order.

Daisy’s Trip: Knoxville, Tennessee

Daisy and her travel mates had never spent much time in Tennessee and really wanted to get a taste of the culture and meet the people.

An excursion to “The Lost Sea Adventure” near Knoxville was “amazing,” says Daisy. “We hiked down 14 stories and learned about stalagmites and stalactites and how the Native Americans used the caves as shelter from the colder months and as burial grounds.” At the end of the cave, they boarded a boat and took a picturesque tour around the lake.
A hike through Great Smoky Mountains National Park was on their bucket list — and it was beautiful!
Quiet roads and tunnels dug out of the sloping forest were welcome changes from the Kennedy Expressway.
What could be a John Constable painting was the real-life view Daisy enjoyed while traveling the mountainous outskirts of Knoxville.
