    Terrible Place

    I went there this weekend with my g/f. Overall it was a terrible trip. There were plenty of bad things that occurred with no fault to Philly, but there was a lot of stuff that I had against the place. The biggest thing is the people. They are the rudest people I've ever been...

    Something Interesting I Found

    I lived in Hazleton. Roughly an hour away from Philly when I went to college. My neighbour, Andrea* had a daughter who was going to Temple University. So I sometimes tagged along with Andrea and her daughter to help them move. Prior to that, I've only passed through Philly when I...

    Never Going Back

    We travel a lot on our quest to see all the national parks and historic sites.  Philadelphia by far was the worst experience EVER in our travels.  The traffic was unreal.  We got lost in the city, coming out of the city, and in the farm roads of PA.  My...
