“You’re off to great places, today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so… get on your way!”
– Seuss, Oh, the places you’ll go
Over 16,000 km away from home; Philadelphia! The city of Philly Cheese steaks, the Rocky Staircase and the Liberty Bell. I’m going to be honest, I had no idea what to expect when I got to Philadelphia. Whenever I think of the United States, I think New York, LA and Disney World. (I think I just watch too many movies…) It’s been great exploring the city and seeing the contrast in culture compared to other states and an interesting experience travelling by myself for the first time. I think one of the down falls when travelling alone, you can’t try all the different food!
Although I haven’t been able to travel to far away from the place I’m staying, I’ve been able to explore the city and see all the small shops, try a few American treats and meet lots of people. I was worried I was going to get home sick or feel lonely while travelling by myself, but everyone in Philadelphia has been friendly and helpful. Travelling by myself has been really interesting!
It’s been a great trip so far and can’t wait to see what else there is to come! Hopefully a few more sites, more tasty food and new friends!
