Travel Bug

Have you discovered the wonder that is Airbnb? About this time of year everyone is itching for a vacation and a few blogs have enthusiastically pointed in the direction of this incredibly useful site. A step above couch surfing and cheaper than paying for a hotel, Airbnb links national and international travelers to a variety of places to stay around the world. I've been browsing some spots in DC just in case we spontaneously have a weekend away this spring...(hoping!)

Another great site is Cross-Pollinate, started by an American couple in Rome (my pal G and I stayed at their Roman hostel back in 2007). Just this past summer Chris and I booked a week long stay at a one bedroom apartment in Paris with the help of this site.

I'd gladly take the travel bug over the flu bug ANY day. Topping my list are Boston, London, and Amsterdam. Is there somewhere that you've been dreaming of going or an unforgettable place you've seen already? Please share!

  1. I would love to travel to Barcelona and see all of Gaudi's famous artwork and buildings. Plus, of course, Richmond VA to see some very important people I know.
