Interview with Anita from Passport Down South!

Traveling with a chronic condition like psoriatic arthritis takes some extra planning, but it hasn’t stopped our latest interviewee from seeing the world.

Anita Shuler is a Southern mom from Charleston who has traveled throughout the United States, Ireland, Canada, and the Caribbean. She started her blog Passport Down South to detail her adventures, and she hopes to inspire others to take on the world regardless of their medical challenges.

Bath, Stonehenge, and a Secret Place - Part 2

We pulled up to The Royal Crescent in Bath just as the wind and rain began to pick up. This impressive crescent of terraced houses was built in the late 1700s and is still considered one of the most exclusive residential areas in England. Our tour guide Chris would later tell us the story of resident Miss Amabel Wellesley-Colley who upset the neighbors by painting her door yellow. The case went to the highest courts until it was finally determined that she did, in fact, have the freedom to paint her own door however she saw fit.

That was back in the 1970s, and her door remains yellow to this day.

 

How to Spend a Weekend in Pigeon Forge on a Budget - Part 2

Book Your Room Wisely

Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Gatlinburg are brimming with accommodations, so don’t limit yourself. Although we had the rewards points for an upgraded stay at Choice Hotel, we often book the same little family-owned and operated motel my parents took me to when I was a kid. I’m fond of accommodations like the Maples Motor Inn because they offer flat rates, and when they’re posted on their website, you can see which weeks are going to cost more than others. This allows you to plan your getaway on the "off" weeks, when Pigeon Forge is going to be less crowded in general.
