Over the weekend, the Michael W Travels family headed to Philadelphia for a one night stay at the DoubleTree located in Center City. (We booked the stay to use our Spend A Night On Us Certificate from our recent Hilton Grand Vacations Timeshare Offer.)
We had no set plans besides visiting the close-by Legoland Discovery Center the following day.
I could see how the selfie stick could be a helpful device in some situations but I find that they do more bad than good.
Selfie sticks could cause damage and be quite annoying to others also trying to take a photo. For instance, when Kim, Lucas and I went to Disney I couldn’t image why someone in the front row at a parade would need to use a selfie stick to get a photo. I do know that this selfie stick did manage to ruin quite a few of the photos I was trying to take! Continue reading Selfie Sticks Banned For Pope’s Visit→
During one of our many trips to Philadelphia, we took a stroll down another interesting street. I couldn’t remember what distinction it had, whether it was one of the narrowest in the US or oldest. I decided to pull up a few photos from the visit and then do a quick read into it. Continue reading America’s Oldest Residential Street→
If the deal worked according to plan, some lucky bargain shoppers would get a room at the recently renovated Radisson Blu Warwick for a great deal. Since the hotel was opened in 1926, some people would get to book rooms for $19.26 per person for one stay of up to 2 nights. The room also came with complimentary breakfast and many extras.
During my travels I don’t usually like to visit too many museums, however there are some that I try to seek out. For this week’s Flashback Friday I will share a post about a certain type of museum that I will go out of my way to visit-museums that display oddities!
I’ve been to a bunch of these type of museums and would like to share a post about one of them today.
Here is the post:
The Mutter Museum: A Museum of Medical Oddities- Philadelphia, PA

While on the bus to Philadelphia, my brother and I decided to sit on the upper level of the double-decker bus. We sat right by the stairs so we could get off quickly when we arrived at our destination. However, we started to debate if we chose a good place to sit soon after the bus started moving.
Just as we were getting comfortable, loud music started playing on the bus. I turned around and saw a guy listening to (blasting) music.The funny thing was that he was using headphones!
We were sitting 4-5 rows in front of him but we could still hear his music loud and clear.
I can only imagine how this guy will do on future hearing tests!
At first the loud music was irritating, annoying and a nuisance. But then we started feeling the music. We figured why not embrace what you can not control. We went back to relaxing but then my brother woke up dancing to the beats!
Check out the video below:
Disclaimer: The music heard in the video was really coming from a guy’s headphones a few rows behind us on the bus. The dance video was a joke made to make light of the situation. It was an impromptu joke, not planned in advance.
