Philadelphia Auto Show

Auto show 2015 – a huge hall filled with the newest (and oldest, and everything in between) cars, showcased by numerous car brands. This was the second auto show I have seen since our move to the U.S. What a difference! The first time we went, I believe was our first year here. It was interesting, but after a couple of hours, when my stepdad, a notorious car lover, was only beginning to enjoy the show, my mom and I got tired and quite honestly a bit bored from looking at loads and loads of heavy machinery. Fast forward 7 years into 2015 and there we were, all equally engaged and curious to see who put out the best car models. It's interesting how our interests have changed in the course of our living in this new home country. I couldn't be more grateful for all the opportunities and the variety of events and activities we have access to now. Whether it's auto shows, flower shows, rock converts or the opera, art galleries and museums – all of these different engagements present something new and help us grow and aspire to learn and see more.


  1. Going to the Detroit Auto Show (now called the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS)) was part of my teen years. Detroit was known as the Motor City, and the auto show highlighted the work we did. The NAIAS now runs for 13 days, so you can pick either weekend to come see it next January.

    1. Thank you for the invitation, Ms. Madeline! That would be a great trip, given that Detroit is a homeland for some of the largest car manufacturers!
