Philly Minute

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

During my stay in Washington DC, I was determined to see or do something different on weekends. I knew my East Coast living was only temporary and wanted to explore as much as I can. Wednesdays and Thursdays were the crucial planning days and I had to come up with an idea before Friday. I probably had a lot on my bucket list but when I found out that Philadelphia was just another bus ride away, I needed to go!

Call me crazy or call me brave, but I was going to purchase one roundtrip ticket as my friends weren’t available to go with me. Philly was just a few hours away and I was going to be back the same day anyway. This was nothing, as I already moved across country on my own, knowing only 2 souls in the area, and left all of my family and friends back in California. Luckily my friend’s previous engagement got cancelled and she was able to come along. We could have just stayed the night over but it was also last minute thing and would rather just be back in my Dupont Circle apartment.

We took a bus tour around and was pleasantly surprised with Philly. I didn’t know much about the city, didn’t have time to read about it. Maybe it’s just a case of pure wanderlust that drew me to go. Or maybe it’s the sound of having a Philadelphia Cheesesteak in Philadelphia that was just so inviting.

    I’m so glad you took the time to come visit my city! One of the things I love about it is that even the touristy must-do stuff is stuff locals do, too. One of the photos you snapped was right outside my church (Christ Church, where Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross once attended!) and you caught a picture of the 15 trolley that runs right by my apartment! You’ll have to come back, though, because there’s lots more to do – great food, coffee, shopping, art to see… I love it here, can you tell? 🙂

    • Thanks Lola! Yes, I could tell that you really love it there. It’s a shame that I only get to be there for a short time, but it’s short enough for me to know that I need to come back!

  • Every time I read a post about the States I just want to go more and more. Luckily my bf met a guy from Philly last week who kindly offered to show us around of we ever come over 🙂 I’m taking that as a pretty good hint and moving the US higher up my “must see” list!

    Also, I love how you make the people and cars look so great in photos. Every time I get them in mine, I just don’t like the way they look, I don’t know why. I always feel they make the photo untidy or something. I really love that photo of the bus though!

    • Thanks for your kind words Kerri! Hope you get to visit US soon! There’s a lot to explore!
