When it comes to finding accommodations while traveling, I’m somewhat of a pragmatist. I don’t require 5* stays mostly because I see it as a colossal waste of money. When I travel, I see my hotel room as somewhere to lay my head at night. I didn’t travel so that I could stay in a room, I plan to spend as little time there as possible! But this is just my budget conscious opinion.
It is inevitable that you will come across one of these bright yellow vehicles during the course of your rush hour commute. They are responsible for moving disabled vehicles from the highway onto the shoulder or clearing wrecks from the highways in order to facilitate a smoother traffic flow.
I’m a planner. I’m not the type A, OCD type of planner, but I like to keep things organized and in its place. Never is this more apparent than when I am planning the details of my vacation.
I like to have all of my flight, hotel and activity confirmations in one place where I can access them at any time.
Rome, Italy was my second sojourn into Europe. Having visited Paris the year prior, I thought myself very fortunate to be going back so quickly. I had been intrigued with Rome for awhile, mostly through the lens of a movie camera.
The rain brought with it silence and solitude as we walked along the massive pathways that guided us past a menagerie of trees, shrubs and perennials.
It was the cusp of late winter dawning in to early spring and the gardens took on an interesting profile.
I have always believed that you can find little hidden treasures close to home. I think Gatlinburg Falls Resort is one such treasure. It is located approximately six miles from the little town of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee with only the Smoky Mountains National Park separating the two.
