About Us

Welcome to A Brit and A Southerner! We are Chris and Heather Boothman and we are delighted that you have taken time to check out our website and join us on our travels as we embark on a journey to ‘Explore the world one weekend at a time’.

Traveling has long been a passion for both of us and being able to share our experiences with all of you really enhances our overall experience. We hope that after reading some of our stories, checking out our pictures and following us on our social media accounts, you will be inspired to travel this amazing world that we all live in.

Who are we?

Chris is originally from a small town called Ramsbottom near Manchester, England. He moved to the States in 2006 to pursue a golf scholarship. Heather is from a similarly small town in Arkansas called Cash.

Living in the Arkansan town of Jonesboro, we both work at our local university and are proud Red Wolves! Outside of traveling, we both love sports, listening to music and of course photography.

Our Brand

We initially started our blog in 2012 under the name ‘Tourist Guide Central’ but soon after realized we needed a more personal name. A Brit and A Southerner was founded in July 2013 and we established our market niche of ‘weekend travel’ as this perfectly described how much of our travels are conducted.

If you are a company and interested in working with us, please feel free to visit our Advertising and PR page. In addition, our latest Media Kit is available with all our latest viewing statistics and demographics.

Enough about us, it’s time to start navigating our website and finding some inspiration to begin traveling the world.
