Having arthritis and lupus makes traveling difficult at best, but I do all my homework before I choose a hotel, travel means, and attractions. Using TripAdvisor as my go-to guide has saved me a lot of unnecessary regret. I've never had to go back into TripAdvisor and bad mouth any of the top picks. However, I read the good & the bad reviews. Sometimes that one bad review involves something key to my comfort, so I want to know it all. A bad room can ruin any vacation & all you need is one horrid experience to have done it once too often. Now I prepare using TripAdvisor, Google Maps (street view) & looking at member photos. I enjoy using public transportation in cities (USA & other) & it makes you feel more like a local. I enjoy many activities but have a passion for museums & churches. Once a year my husband & I & our adult son (living in NYC) go on a trip, meeting up somewhere none of us has been, making it exciting & fun, as well as spending time together as a family.
