    My 2003 Trip

    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...

    It is a beautiful city!

    The culture, history, and architecture is absolutely stunning. One day I will live there and have a vacation house. The Phillies were a dynasty from 07-11 and dominated baseball. The food and ice cream I love. Cheesesteaks and Franklin Fountain. The best ice cream is from there...

    Pokemon Tournament

    I took my son to a Pokemon tournament just north of Philly. They had a random drawing there for who could even participate. Needless to say his number wasn't drawn. So my brother whom I hadn't seen in 4 years lives west of there. He and his girl friend came over and we spent...

    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...
