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.
Did you know there’s a podcast for plus-size travelers?
The Plus Sized Globetrotter was started by travel buddies Adrienne Alwag and Lauren Suarez and is currently available on iTunes. Adrienne’s mother worked at an airline, so she grew up traveling, and Lauren works as an Expedia expert in Maui hotels. Together, these amazing ladies have started the first-ever dedicated plus-size travel podcast, and it’s well worth a listen!
Fortunately, I was able to interview these plus-size globetrotters as they were jet-setting to another destination together.
There’s one thing I didn’t anticipate when coming up with the ambitious idea that I would update this blog daily during our London trip: how exhausting sightseeing can be!
London is an incredibly easy city to navigate with the well-planned Tube lines – so much so that I wish I lived and worked here just for the convenience – but I can’t even imagine how many miles we’ve walked since our arrival. Those trusty Skechers I raved about in my review weren’t meant to handle this amount of abuse, but at least I’ve slept like a rock every night. :)
Last Sunday was my husband Ty’s birthday, and since we happened to have a gift card for Choice Hotels, it seemed like the perfect time for a quick weekend getaway.
In my previous two-part blog series, I talked about how we’d keep things under budget in Pigeon Forge, and we hit our mark – for the most part. Here are the details:
This post is second in a series of planning a budget-friendly weekend in Pigeon Forge, TN. To read Part 1, click here.
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.
