    USA Tour - Philadelphia

    November 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Got the coach from Washington to Philadelphia today - with the travel times there wasn’t much done today. However the hostel I am staying in is unbelievable, almost certainly up there with the best! Have an entire deluxe 6 room to myself at the moment hahahahaha. It’s called apple hostels on bank street which is near the old town. Down a dodgy alley but location wise it can’t be bettered I don’t think! The hostel floors are also rated on the rocky films - I’m on floor 4 so I have the best rocky film by far (fight me if you disagree)Read more

    USA Tour - Philadelphia

    November 27, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Had a quick trip round the south side of the city today, ended up in this cool little bar which had taco Tuesday on which was immense $1:50 per taco! The south side of Philly was quite cool really, few areas I wouldn’t want to live but every city has that. One thing I have noticed about Philly and Washington is the amount of homelessness, I thought it was pretty bad back home but these 2 cities kind of opened my eyes a little bit.

    What trip to Philly is complete without a Philly Cheesesteak. I went to a place called sonny’s which is supposed to be the best place for it... it was fantastic if not messy. Washed it all down with a large root beer. Can’t get anymore local than that!

    Here we go.

    December 30, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 2 °C

    Mike got up early to go suit shopping and I slept in until noon. Then we packed for the lake and headed to the Steeler game. Gosh my toes froze. The Steelers pulled ahead with a field goal with two minutes left in the game for a come from behind 16-13 victory. Once the game ended, they put the Browns v Baltimore game on the big screen for the final two minutes. The Browns were down by a lot of points but had brought it up to 24-26 with possession. Steelers needed a Browns win to make the playoffs but despite Heinz Field also cheering for the Browns (for probably the first time ever), they couldn’t quite pull it off, ending the season for the Steelers. It was very very exciting thought and it felt like we were going to clinch a playoff spot. Oh well. Next season. Afterwards we had some Taco Bell as we drove to the lake.Read more

    It's a hockey night in Pittsburgh.

    January 4 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 2 °C

    Our last day in PA was spent at a delicious Koren BBQ place with heaps of sushi. We packed a bit more and did little bits and pieces around the house before heading to the Pens game. We were so lucky to get the seats we did. It was so excited and we won 4-0. Great end to the US portion of our trip!

    USA Tour - Philadelphia

    November 28, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    So today I went on a huge tour of the city. Started out by visiting the first Bank of America, moving onto Benjamin Franklin’s home. I also went to see independence hall, the liberty bell and the constitution museum.

    After I did all the history stuff I went to paddy’s bar which if you’ve seen ‘it’s always sunny in Philadelphia’ this is the bar it’s based on. Looks nothing like the programme however. I also got talking to the barmaid who works there who told me to get a Philly taco - which is a cheesesteak hoagie wrapped in a slice of pizza.... sounds awesome however I skipped it as I didn’t want to die of a heart attack.

    I also had a venture though Chinatown which was cool, although I would say Boston’s Chinatown was slightly better. But just off Chinatown is a place clued reading food market which takes up like 2 city blocks. All kinds of food you imagine, I went for a jambalaya as I’d never had one before.... unreal.

    After stuffing my face I walked to the other side of town to the museum of art - which is where the iconic scene in rocky is filmed where he climbs the steps... rocky climbed those steps so, so did I!! Also FaceTimed my brother from the top as he’s a huge rocky fan!

    I managed to find a pub with the Liverpool game on only managed to grab the second half. Poor performance all round really. But a guy came into the pub after the game had finished with a very British accent. We ended up talking and his name was sandy from Paddington in London, he works over here and has done for 15 years! Turns out he’s a spurs fan so he was happy. After about 30 mins or so another guy walks in who sits next to us at the bar, I can’t remember his name but he was a Russian living in Texas in Philadelphia for work. We all spent about 3 hours in the pub drinking before we all had to go our separate ways - it was a brilliant night though!

    Bed early tonight as I am up to get to Atlantic City in the morning...

    Santa! I know him!

    December 28, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    We got up “early” to go shopping down at the outlets. I got a Michael Kors purse and wallet for the price of the wallet +$2!! What!! And Coach shoes for 70% off!! We rushed back to the house to change and headed to Station Square for dinner at the Grand Concourse. Great venue. After dinner we attended Elf the Musical at Heinz Hall. My expectations were too high but it was definitely entertaining! Following the musical, we met up with Pittsburgh local friends and went to not just one, not two, but three Christmas bars in downtown.Read more

    True Tourists.

    December 29, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 1 °C

    We had some family friends come visit from out of town and then Mike and I met up with one of the guys from last night for a tour of the Pittsburgh Steelers HQ. We saw the locker room, gym, 6 Lombardi trophies, and met Jordan Berry. For dinner, a high school friend visited, we ate crab legs, and of course watched the Pens game! Yummo!Read more

    New Years Eve

    December 31, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 2 °C

    Happy NYE! We had bacon for breakfast and then a family friend took us out to the sportsman’s club. We got to shoot a muzzle loader, so basically a musket they used in the civil war. It was cool and I shot better than all the boys. 😜 I was less than an inch from the bullseye at 25m and less than 3 inches from the bullseye at 50m. Due to the gun powder nature of the gun, it sometimes don’t go off due to the humidity. Our session ended early when we distracted our friend resulting in him forgetting to put the gun powder in the barrel before the bullet. We had some friends over for dinner and watched Hawaii 5-0 on Netflix until midnight. Hugs and kisses and off to bed.Read more

    Driving, sleeping, and eating.

    January 3 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 1 °C

    We drove back to Pittsburgh from Baltimore after breakfast and had a slice of Beto’s pizza for lunch. Beto’s has a special pizza that you can’t get anywhere else. The way they make their pizza is by cooking the base with the red sauce and then putting it in the oven. After removing it from the oven is when the toppings get placed on top, including the cheese. For dinner we had $5 drinks and $5 delicious ahi at Houlihan’s. ..then the packing began!Read more

    Freezing in Philly!

    November 10, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    After another night at the theatre last night we left New York this morning - very cold and a little snow! Caught the train down to Philadelphia. I'd forgotten what a beautiful city it is- wide streets and Avenues, parks and wonderful buildings. We walked down to the Museum of Art with the huge stairs they used in the Rocky movie. Called at the library on the way back to our hotel which is a fantastic location across from City Hall and just around the corner from the amazing food hall at Reading Terminal Markets. It's freezing 1dec at the moment and will go down to -3 by tomorrow morning- just a little chilly- frozen noses on our cold faces!Read more
