    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!

    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...

    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

    We caught the train to Philly this morning and it is bloody freezing! We walked up the parkway to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and might have run up the stairs Rocky style. It was awesome! We walked back to the hotel via the river and popped into the Philadelphia free library.

    Philadelphia

    November 11, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    We saw heaps on day 2 of Phily including the liberty bell, the national constitution centre, independence hall, and the Franklin institute science museum. Learnt a lot about the early days of democracy in America when Philadelphia was the capital before DC existed from 1790-1800. Phily also has a lot of love for Benji Franklin and now so do we!Read more
