      I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!

      We had a great time, the traffic and construction was a little unforgiving on the way to Asheville. But we had plenty of stops. The stop on the way home at Reynolda was an unexpected surprise and greatly appreciated. Another great trip from Trips by Patty

      I had a great time. The hotel was nice and well located. Ticket/entrance to Biltmore so easy. Bus pickups convenient. Loved the bus stop on the way back in Winston-Salem. Well-organized box lunch there. Very impressed. One thing I will add - a movie was played on the tVs. There was no way to adjust volume since it just blared out. It was way too loud for me (I already have tintinittis) and I wasn't interested in it. But the loudness of it kept me from being able to concentrate on my reading, and I had even put ear plugs into my ears. And some of the ladies near us were commenting loudly about it during the movie. I just waited for the movie to end so I could relax again.

      I apologize for the bad experience with the movie on the bus on the way home. I appreciate the feedback so that I can address this in the future. I don't think I should show movies unless I have the ability to offer with or without audio. Thank you Helen for providing feedback that will help improve future trip experiences.
