Espanya: A Fusion of Everything!

For three years in a row, I could not miss a summer without visiting beautiful Spain <3. Espanya, as called by the Catalan, has a special place in my heart. While I believe that people should not be the same to get along, such differences could be problematic when friends of different tastes travel together. This may not be an issue if Spain was the destination. Spain has a lot to offer to everyone who is interested in history, culture, sports, nature, or nightlife. Oh and I will not forget the great food and the great people.

The City of Brotherly Love

Philadelphia is a historic city that’s very rich and diverse in culture. It’s also known as the “City of Brotherly Love”. Many flock to Philadelphia to take a stroll down the cobblestone streets in Old City, visit the Liberty Bell at Independence Mall, take a run up the Art Museum steps (while yelling Adrienneeee in your own Rocky Balboa’s voice) or to gobble down our world known Philly Cheesesteaks. I’ve been a resident here for almost 20years and I can’t image growing up in any other city. Philadelphia is a fast paced city during the day and offers an eventful nightlife. If you’re single or have a family there’s always something here for everyone to enjoy. Please click on VISITPHILLY.COM for attractions and events.
