We're off on a last minute trip to the beautiful mountain city of Asheville this weekend. We'll be staying at my co-workers sweet house, where we can expect views like this.
Asheville is our fav local vacation. The downtown is walkable, historic [hello Biltmore, the largest home in AMERICA built in the late 19th c.], full of microwbreweries, organic eats and great barbecue. The surrounding landscape is a natural adventure of hiking, boating, etc. It was the only destination we considered for a destination wedding.
Of course, with my luck, it'll actually be more like this [SNOW is forecast for our beloved Southeast on Sunday. WTF? It's MARCH people. The month of the Other White Fluff: Dogwood blooms.]. Oh well, at least the place is equipped with a real wood burning fireplace and a hot tub. And the last few chapters of Gone With The Wind.
Grace Bonney [of Design*Sponge fame] is looking for recommendations for her honeymoon. Maybe it's just special to us, but Asheville is srsly romantic AND fun, including plenty of glamping opportunities!
Glamping is definitely a honeymoon option if we decide to stay domestic thanks to the NYSE. It would be great: Mr. B could FINALLY use his backpacking pack [after a year of non-use] and I could tell my cool indie friends we stayed in a yurt. A win-win if you ask me!
