59 Candles, 59 Things – Part Fifteen

Twenty Third thing: There is a website that never ceases to make me happy. It has forever changed the way Spence and I travel.  My lifelong BFF was the one who turned me on to http://homeaway.com  She and her husband had taken a trip to the California wine region. Renting a fully furnished home, they’d do vineyard tours and wine tasting, bringing back bottles of great wine that they could share back at their “home” each evening. I was intrigued. How many homes? Where?

The answer: Countless homes and EVERYWHERE! 

So far, we’ve stayed in a log home in the Smoky Mountains, a historic home adjacent to Forsyth Park in Savannah, a condo overlooking the mountains in Canmore, Alberta and a zen villa in the Red Rocks of Sedona.  The appeal for us is living as “locals” in a beautiful fully furnished home with all the amenities, no noise from neighboring hotel rooms, no maids in and out and the convenience of a full kitchen if we want to eat in.
