Love in the City of Love

October 24, 2007

Just came back from a LOVELY visit to Philadelphia.  We had a great time.

I fell in love with LaScala at 7th & Chestnut.   Four stars on a four star scale!   Casual but upscale atmosphere & ambience, wonderful food, fabulous service!   I highly recommend.  (Italian…)

I think it interesting that no matter how much time you have to pre-plan, you can’t know what you really want to do and see until it unfolds before you.    

In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.

Plans are nothing; planning is everything.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

I referenced the above quote while waiting for the elevator of the hotel after I don’t know how many times we exchanged, “what do you want to do now?  I don’t care.  What do YOU want to do now…”   When my husband chimed in with his little ditty, “Planning is a must;  the plan not so much.”  

Sometimes, I really get bored and frustrated traveling because I want to do so much!   and spend too much time deciding.    I didn’t take as many photos this trip but I do love – –  I have much MUCH super much appreciation for the old ornate buildings…

  1. Next time you’re going to be in town let me know and I’ll check to see if anything interesting is going on 🙂

    And we’re used to the old ornate buildings… it was always all the places to eat and shop I missed in other towns.

    Oh and the pretzels, I love my soft pretzels! 🙂
