When my kid was younger, I started a family travel blog called Snapshot Chronicles Roadtrip. Over the past 10 years, even though we have been to many interesting places, however, I fell into the trap of letting Instagram tell the stories. I’m determined to change that, but it doesn’t make sense to have more than 1 personal blog — since I can barely keep that up — so I am going to dust off this site and start documenting my travels, recipes and restaurant reviews again.
First up — create a few posts featuring some of the best travel content from the Roadtrip blog. Starting with our 2014 weekend trip to Philadelphia

I had a quick trip to Philadelphia this past October, and have a few restaurant recommendations to add to my earlier posts.
For a delicious family breakfast: Bud & Marilyn’s. The menu looked great for lunch and dinner too — but I can’t resist a good Chicken & Waffles.
A couple nice places in Rittenhouse Square:
- Parc – nice French bistro with lovely outside space. Try the charcuterie.
- Via Locusta – the focaccia with honey butter, chef’s kiss
We also ate at Fork, which was delicious but not a place to take kids. Save it for a special occasion.
