2012 was probably our first year of serious traveling. We were fortunate to visit several different locations together and we certainly expanded our knowledge of different regions of the world. This was also our debut year for "Tourist Guide Central" which originated from our constant traveling that gave us the inspiration to begin sharing our experiences with the world....
It's been several years since I had visited the Lakes and yet again I was left astonished by the true beauty that surrounds the English countryside when we visited here during our trip to England in November 2012. This was Heather's first trip to the Lake District and I don't think she left disappointed with what she saw. Bowness...
After traveling to Atlanta, GA for the weekend of the TOUR Championship in September 2012, we made a spur of the moment decision to head back home on Sunday using an alternative route. After researching a route that would take us back home through Nashville, we noticed that on the way about half way from Atlanta to Nashville was Chattanooga,...
For Heather's birthday, we decided to head on an action-packed 4 day trip to Miami, Florida for the holiday weekend. Given that we usually rent a car for such trips, this was a more unique experience for us especially Heather, as we knew that this was going to be a trip of relaxation and full use of the Miami...

Only a week after travelling to the TOUR Championship in Atlanta, GA, we were unsure as to...
So....after our morning and afternoon adventures, we decided to spend our early evening venturing to the top of the Empire State Building. We wandered down 34th St passing the infamous Macy's department store (a brief visit leading us to see masses of shoppers was sufficient for us to turn around and continue down towards the landmark skyscraper. Arriving at the...
My first experience in the United States of America was visiting the amazing city that is New York City. The stereotypical 24 hour city of the world certainly lives up to it's reputation and I was delighted whenever we arranged to go back here so that Heather could experience this vibrant city for the first time. Where to stay...
Stratford Upon Avon, located in the heart of England's beautiful countryside would normally just be like any other small town aside from one person who changed the way this town is perceived - William Shakespeare. Probably the most infamous writer, playwright and poet, Shakespeare was born in England in the middle of the 16th Century. The town is a popular...
Prior to our trip to the Tampa Bay Area of Florida in 2011, Destin was the only Florida location that either of us had traveled to and we both knew there had to be much more to Florida than what we had already seen. Venturing further south we decided to spend a long weekend in the Tampa area. We...

If you are visiting England for the first time, you could be forgiven for thinking that you have to start by exploring London. However, we challenge you to think outside the box and consider heading outside of the capital and visiting an area such as Cornwall in southwest England. During Heather's first visit to the UK, we headed to...
