One Day in Philadelphia – The Best Bits of Old City

With all the snow and cold this year, the Cypriot and I had one day in Philadelphia to shop, eat and drink. We spent that one day in Philadelphia’s Old City, the 18th C historic section of downtown, that is considered the birthplace of the American Revolution. While the food scene and Philadelphia restaurants are at the top of their game, great shopping in the city of Brotherly Love is not up to par with any of its East Coast cousins. Maybe it’s the pull of King of Prussia Mall, second largest mall in America, that drags the potential shoppers away from center city.

Still, I have found a few Philadelphia shops and sights that really deserve our attention and if you have one day in […]

A Visit to the Whitney Plantation in Louisiana is a must!

Following our guide, the ten of us shuffled into the cramped cabin, leaving us barely enough room to breathe without bashing into each other. Sweat slowly dripped down my forehead into my eyes and I struggled to wipe it away, trying not to touch the person next to me.

Before our leader had a chance to speak, a young voice shouted out assuredly, “That’s the chimney Santa comes down!” Still adjusting from the bright sun, I jerked around to see who spoke, losing my balance in the process. My boyfriend caught me just before I fell into the lady next to me. Tightly grabbing my arm, he flicked his head in the direction of a little boy in the corner.

I could feel the whole group shifting, […]

A Bit of USA: New New York

The only reason we were here was to see the new Whitney Museum of American Art. Have you forgotten that the Cypriot is an architect by day? Seeing the latest work by fellow architect, Renzo Piano, was much more important than relaxing with friends and family, even during the holiday season. Off we went…

Jumping on the train from 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, one can’t help but be reminded how grand train travel was in the early part of the 20th Century. You gasp in awe as you wait in line for your train encompassed by the vast ceiling, larger than life sculptures, hanging chandeliers and the pièce de résistance, Karl Bitter’s 1895 relief The Spirit of Transportation. Everyone in the relief is heading off somewhere, […]
