In January, 2017, my wife and I took a short trip to Philadelphia for a couple of days.  It was a wonder time to get away – a break from being parents, from classwork, and the regular routine of life.  And even driving.  We took the train into the city and walked.  A lot.  The first day we walked about 20,000 steps and the next day we walked over 30,000 steps.  In case you are wondering how far that was – on our second day we essentially covered a half-marathon distance (13.1 miles).  Our feet were tired, but we loved every moment of it.

To start off our trip, we arrived in the city, walked to our AirBnB apartment and then headed off to dinner.  We did the touristy thing and decided that we wanted Philly cheese steak.

Would it be Geno’s? Or Pat’s?

Considering that the line at Pat’s was a little smaller, we chose Pat’s.



It was cold out, but the cheese steak warmed our bellies.  And yes, I ordered it the proper way – with cheese whiz.

Next time we go to the city, we’ll try Geno’s.  But for this time:
