My First Trip Up North
"Dear Old Philadephia"
Since flights were so cheap to Philadelphia this summer (I paid only $48 +tax), I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take advantage and travel up North, a place previously unknown to me. After begging many people to come along, I was delighted to have my best friend Elizabeth accompany me. We planned for about 2 months in advance, waiting with bated breath for our mini vacation and a chance to let loose in the city of Philadelphia. It was to be an adventure and I couldn't have brought along a better travel companion.
When we arrived, we immediately went to our hotel, a quaint little bed and breakfast called Society Hill Hotel. The rooms were small but full of character. And we took our first day to explore South Street and dine in a retro diner.
From trip was off to a wonderful start (more details to come). The city was teeming with activity. The food was wonderful and I couldn't resist bringing a few cheese steaks back home with me to NC. There was so much to do and see in Philadelphia and I shall have to return soon to discover more. After all, I missed the Edgar Allen Poe House, and what literary buff can pass that up? Hopefully the flights will remain inexpensive and Elizabeth and I can return again soon.
