"Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but alwayspaddling like the dickens underneath." // Michael Caine

Happy Links:

  • I haven't stopped dreaming of an Airstream life after finding the Riveted blog. So. Much. Chrome. {sigh}
  • As I mentioned several months ago, we're in the midst of planning our trip to Glacier National Park. I've been following the park's Flickr stream to keep up with their work as they get the park ready for the spring/summer season. There's still so much snow!
  • Have you all heard of Dear Photograph? The site is based completely on the idea of matching an old printed photograph to the same location in its present form. It's brilliant.

Wrap it Up:

  • I finally wrote about the process my mom and I are going through to get rid of excess and simplify our lives. Spoiler alert: it feels pretty great.
  • A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking thesecret tunnel tours at the Cal Neva Resort on Lake Tahoe. If you're at all interested in history, retro decor and conspiracy, I highly recommend you take a tour.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I'll be spending a few days in the Denver area, so be sure to follow my Instagram feed {@JenSnyder} for updates!

Featured: Wand'rly Magazine + Vacation Rentals

attachment-5188fba7e4b0921527f982c5

Wand'rly Magazine has just launched their 9th issue and my latest feature for the publication, which had me digging into the details behind vacation and room rentals, is now live!

Here's an excerpt:

"After a long day on the road, every traveler needs a place to rest for the night. Some may prefer tents, RVs or tricked-out buses, while others would rather get their shuteye in hostels, motels or high-end hotels. Some wanderers, however, choose an increasingly popular option: the short-term vacation rental.

Since the mid-2000’s, websites such as HomeAway.com, FlipKey.com, Airbnb.com and Roomorama.com have offered easy access to various types of lodging for those seeking unique spaces. With listings ranging from rustic cabins in the woods to grand seaside castles, it’s easy to see why rentals have caught the eye of savvy travelers.

Many of the websites offer the same type of information regarding rental properties, such as number of bedrooms, amenities, rates, reviews and location; but they can differ when it comes to the type of listings found on each site, the payment and reservation process and how owners get feedback from travelers. We’ve rounded up a handful of the most popular vacation rental websites to find out what you need to know before booking your next stay."

You can read the full article here.

If you have yet to check out Wand'rly Magazine, you should stop in and see what the new issue has in store. Those interested in experiencing the Airstream life or living like a local while on the road will find plenty of good information!
