    A lay in, the alarm actually went off and woke us up this morning at 7:15am. The day has come that we have been dreading as it's the last day in the U.S. As a result we have to pack the cases for the last time and lock them up. We have each kept an outfit for the plane and will change when we get to the airport. This morning as per usual we have a tour of the city, if starts at a later 09:30am. It lasts three hours, so not ...

    ... mainly Australians with a mix of English, Russian and American. One thing that took us by surprise was the amount of Australians here in the hostel!

    ... It was a very hot day, and so it was rather lovely to be outside swinging some balls around - thankfully I wasn't too rusty after a summer absent from the sport, and I managed not to disgrace myself infront of two rather good players! That evening, Mia's parents took me again, this time for a quick drive into Philadelphia to see the city lit up. We drove by the infamous boat houses on the river, and through the museum district which ...

    In the years since my parents moved in 1997 to a place in central New Jersey about equidistant between New York City and Philadelphia, I've been going to the more southerly of the two cities more often for sights and entertainment. Philadelphia is a city that New Yorkers tend to look down upon. I recall that when I was younger the word a lot of people used to describe it was boring. I think that’s a relative term, though; compared to most of America Philadelphia ...
