Ok this post wouldn’t load last night so let’s pretend it’s 10:30pm last night :)
Welcome to the city of brotherly love.
I had planned to room with fellow Boston blogger and dog lover, Elizabeth, and wouldn’t you know we ended up sitting next to each other on the same flight!! Crazy.
Once we landed, shared a cab with Janetha to the hotel, and checked in, the two of us went on a little nerd-fest/touristy day around Philly!
Our hotel room!
First, however, we were both starving and headed to the Reading Terminal Market to browse and grab lunch.
This place is so cool! Boston needs one of these places asap. Anything you can think of is here.
After making the rounds we opted for Italian.
I got a sampling of some of the prepared salads…a Greek salad, and a chicken fusili.
And 1 meatball. Because that’s how I roll.
Then we were off…
We were all over the Liberty Bell…yes it’s still there, and still cracked.
Pretty cool nonetheless…
Even got my picture taken with George…
An original version of the Declaration of Independence that came before the one that was signed.
Tomb of the unknown soldier
Then there was more walking, but we took a break to stop into a place that I know Brian would have wanted to go to if he were here:
I enjoyed a Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ale.
It was a little sweeter than I would have liked, but refreshing still!
Later, there was some snacking in the form of pickles from the Market
And I also grabbed coffee #2 of the day so I’d be awake for the Cocktail Party!
So far I’ve been having a blast with Elizabeth!! We just got back from the cocktail party not to long ago, but it’s very much bedtime as we are meeting some folks for a 6am run in the morning!!
