    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
