Traveling: Where to stay?


Okay so my hubby and I have been contemplating a summer vacation but like most families our budget is tight. So the task of determining where to allocate the limited funds can be tricky.  I usually break the budget into four areas; room, food, travel, and entertainment/amusement. I always like to begin with where we will be staying. Since we do have three young kiddos it is not much of a vacation for mommy and daddy when we are all stuck in a one room hotel.  So, I would prefer to stay in a place that has two bedrooms and bath.  And it would be a dream come true if we could stay in an apartment like accommodation or even a house, but again, that is expensive.  I had even contemplated a bed and breakfasts but the cost is a factor, or is it? 

I came across this awesome site that lists homes and apartments that you can stay in when vacationing, it is like a modern-day bed and breakfast. Check it out…

There are some amazing places to stay and at such reasonable prices.

Barcelona

So where do you want to go on vacation? Think you would consider using airbnb.com?

You're off to great places! But do keep in touch!

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!

    Airbnb is a fantasic idea, especially for families. I would definitely use this if I were to travel abroad, but only if I were by myself there. I think sharing a home with the host would be weird!

      Good point that could be a little awkward. I think I would prefer to do the same. I am thinking this might be cool for a Moms Weekend. They have houses and apartments all over. It would be nice to just drive a short distance but stay a weekend with a bunch of friends. Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to visit and comment, your feedback means a lot to me.
