May 4-5, 2015: Eating Phillies in Philly

Decided to hop over to Philadelphia, home of the Fresh Prince, to eat some Philly Cheesesteaks. We got our liberty on, squeezed in a boxing sesh, and just roamed around the city.

Miles walked:      5.5
Miles driven:      178

Cool architecture made out of recycled materials:

We were told of a magical place called Sam’s Morning Glory Diner that serves a different flavored homemade jam everyday and as Francy is an avid jam connoisseur, we decided to put this place up to the test:

It did not disappoint. In fact, Francy declared it his “favorite breakfast ever” and showed his respect with a bow:

Could THIS be where the Fresh Prince “shot b-ball outside the school”? We were determined to find out.

Getting our liberty on:

Squeezed in a quick boxing sesh with the great Rocky Balboa (I won, obviously):

Philly - 10

And made the notorious run up the rocky steps. Remember – I don’t do this “running” thing, so catching this on film is equivalent to photographic proof of a leprechaun. Cherish it.

Samsonite rewarded his busy and active day with a classic Philly Cheesesteak:
