    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!

    Mural Tours and Al

    May 12, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    (5) What about being in Philadelphia is a new experience for you?
    Philadelphia is a new experience for me in that it is a trip for service work. Previous school trips have been about sightseeing and, when I was in show choir, performing. For our leadership team, the trip to Philadelphia is to encounter different contexts of leadership as well as give to the city and its residents, of whom have lifestyles and situations very different from what we are used to. (We’re in Philadelphia to have fun too, but that doesn’t sound as chivalrous.)
    The last few days of the trip felt entirely different than the beginning, simply because we were spending our time sightseeing, eating, and shopping. I love all of those things, and I loved that part of the trip, but I get the most pride from our first few days. I know how hard our team worked at the service sites, and that is an experience I am not used to with school trips; though this trip may appear as a vacation to some, our work bettered the lives of a few people, if not more. That alone shows the effect of a good leader, inciting positive change as a common goal for his or her followers.
    Another new experience of Philadelphia were the place we stayed and served. I remember our mural tour leader, Al, telling us, “You guys have seen places in Philadelphia most tourists don’t see.” To me, this is a powerful statement; we went places and did things most people will not. We encountered experiences most Philadelphian tourists will never encounter. Admittedly, we went to places I would have never gone to otherwise. I think the concept of making a difference in a place not many others will is another thing for our team to be proud of.

    Shout out to our pal Al for a wonderful mural tour around Philly's downtown! Everything was beautiful and so interesting 🎨 Our feet hurt, but we are ready for some good din!

    Philadelphia - Gschicht zwüsche Hochhüser. Mir hän d Liberty Bell bsuecht und in ere Fierig drüber gschmunzlet, wie d Amerikaner dr Unabhängigkeitskrieg und ihri witteri Gschicht so gsehn.
    Cool sin au die modärne Wolkekratzer zwüsche de Baksteihochhüser gsii. Und noch me Philly Cheesesteake (schmeckt besser als es usgseht) hän mer dr Rocky au no bsuecht.Read more

    Oktoberfest und Supermarkt

    September 19, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Ich bin auf dem Oktoberfest! In Philly! :)
    Und wisst ihr woran ich merke, dass es tatsächlich deutsches Bier ist? Ich merke schon den zweiten Becher! Habe in den letzten Tagen diverse Biere probiert, aber keins schmeckt wie das.
    Das wirklich wirzige ist aber, dass Amerikaner das ja für Deutschland halten. Die denken alle in Deutschland tragen Lederhosen, trinken Bier und essen Sauerkraut!
    Trotzdem war es irgendwie schön dort zu sein.

    Gestern hab ich auch Pfannen und Töpfe und ein paar Lebensmittel gekauft. Ich werde jetzt also nicht so schnell verhungern! Krass waren die Ausmaße des Supermarktes. Allein 3 Gänge mit Cornflakes!!! Ganz zu schweigen natürlich von den riesigen Kanistern an Wasser oder Milch...
    Ich vermisse ein bisschen deutsche Supermärkte... Die sind einfacher zu "bedienen" :D

    - Cornflakes soweit das Auge reicht :o
    - Abendessen von meiner chinesischen Mitbewohnerin (sehr lecker, aber sehr scharf)
    - mein Frühstück (hab tatsächlich ein Müsli gefunden, das ganz gut schmeckt)
    - getuntes Fahrrad :D
    - Oktoberfest!!
    - Oktoberfest: die Preise kommen ans Original hin ;)
