My husband and I had a fun date night last night. We went bowling and I lost terribly, but it was a lot of fun. My husband is like some sort of secret ninja bowler.
I was so excited that while we were out (bowling and running errands), I got to actually get something at a drive-thru! Every time I go through one, I think, people can really do this?! I never eat out, or very very rarely. Why? Because I’m uber healthy. Ha! Not so much. Due to food allergies. So, at Wendy’s, I got an all-natural lemonade (after confirming all ingredients of course which I must do every time, even if I’ve had the product before)! It’s rare for me to be able to have anything pre-packaged.
I was so thrilled! I mean, seriously excited. I also got a fruit cup. That was my dinner. Don’t feel bad for me, I rarely go hungry. :) And, this was a treat! So every time you go through a drive-thru or eat out in a restaurant, eat a little extra for me.
We also spent some time preparing for an upcoming trip to Austin, TX. We went to college in Austin. It’s one of the most scenic and cultural cities in Texas. Speaking of food, we try our best to get a full kitchen when traveling so that I can make meals and not starve.
In the course of looking at possible vacation rentals, here are some that we came across on VRBO.com.
VRBO stands for Vacation Rental By Owner.
Did you know it is possible to stay in actual homes/ condos for the cost of an average hotel room? If you have a family, this is a great way to travel. That’s my tip.
I just loved the ceiling and stairs on this one. Plus it kind of goes with the Lemonade…
Again, an amazing ceiling! (Click the images for more information.)
Okay, so read this caption. Seriously, that is the master?!
I thought this one was well designed. Love the striped wall.
You get not only bikes with this one, but chickens?!
And, wow, what creative design here. A fish tank toilet.
I love looking on VRBO. It is a fantastic source for vacation rentals and there are all price ranges on there, depending on your needs, from luxurious to basic. And, the same with sizes, anything from an efficiency to a palatial mansion.
Looking forward to our future trip. We found just the right place in the right location for us, that was available at the right time for a quick business trip.
But, wanna know what I actually look forward to most? I actually found a restaurant in Austin that I could eat at. So what if it’s just a burger joint and took me hours to find and several phone calls. It means I can eat a patty wrapped in lettuce and french fries!
Remember this little VRBO tip the next time you travel. Have you ever used VRBO? (I know this sounds like an advertisement, but I’m not being asked or paid to write this.)
