Philadelphia Trip :: Travel

I have this thing for buying plane tickets. It's like a game for me. I love the process of finding the dates, looking for the best deal, comparing the airlines, and then actually purchasing them (the best part!)! I'm one of those people who is signed up for all the deals and alerts going to certain cities. I also follow Clark Howard's travel deals. That's how I found incredible tickets for San Diego, Washington DC, Colorado, and a few other places.

At the end of August I was kind of in a funk trying to get back into things after being away for the summer, and I saw roundtrip deals to Philadephia starting at $80! I got right on the website and started texting friends to work out times to visit. We nailed down the dates, I procrastinated in buying the tickets (don't do that...the cost goes up. haha), and planned the trip. I was so excited. I was ready to fly again, see friends, and take a trip "just for fun".

For the first part of the trip, I stayed with my friend Brit (who I traveled to Europe with a few years ago) and her husband. She showed me around Philadelphia and took me to Hershey. That is just the cutest town. I consumed a bunch of chocolate and bought a ridiculous amount to take back to my family.

The second half of the trip I stayed with Jaynie (my sweet camp friend!) and her family. She took me to Amish country where we had amazing coffee and I bought huge cinnamon rolls and delicious chocolate chip cookies. Amish country absolutely fascinates me, and she probably thought I was ridiculous when I freaked out over the horses and carriages.

Such a great, where to next? ;)
