a day in philly.

May 24, 2016

Somehow, I forgot to blog about this trip. I was looking through my old posts yesterday and thought, hey where’s Philly? Luckily it didn’t happen that long ago so I still remember everything, sort of.

I’ve wanted to go to Philly for a while now for two reasons.

  1. UPenn was my dream school when I was applying to colleges. It still is.
  2. Philly cheese steak!! (That wasn’t sentimental at all.)

Last time I came back from Chicago fairly unsatisfied. I knew I needed to go back again and take advantage of the city more! Granted, my trip the firs time was a bit short (a day and half-ish), so I didn’t have time to do everything I wanted to do. When I found out about a JetBlue sale, this was on my list of places to go to.

How exciting! First off – I learned from the last time. I packed¬†very warmly. That made my trip 100 times better than the last time. Second – I had places on my list from last time that I didn’t get to check off so that was great starting point.
