Our First Airbnb Test Run

We have talked about using Airbnb on some of our various European travels because the concept seems so neat. One of theĀ reasons we have the van is to save costs and time on finding hotels. We plan to use the van for most of our travels, but realize sometimes it would be wonderful to experience the more unique places Europe has to offer. I thoroughly enjoy getting the one on one communication with the owners and feel that VRBO (Vacation Rental by Owner) has become more commercialized. I’m hoping that isn’t the case for Airbnb. We actually learned that the owner of this particular condo is a fellow RV traveler! You can’t get that personalized communication just anywhere! Since we’ve never used Airbnb, we figured what better way to learn about it than try it out here in the states before heading to Europe! We found a wonderful condo on the bay near where we currently are located and stayed for a few days. We hope you enjoy this video, and would love to hear any recommendations you have for our European Airbnb travels!

It’s not YOU, it’s ME

We celebrated our 6 month nomad-iversary recently by heading off to a beachfront hotel that was bigger than our RV. We haven’t had a staycation since living in Florida, so there’s no better time than when you live in a tiny space! As beautiful as the hotel and extra space were, we missed our RV and couldn’t wait to get back! We hope you enjoy this video and would love to hear from our fellow tiny house friends about any staycations they have enjoyed! Sometimes you don’t have to get away to be away! šŸ˜‰ Enjoy!

Pirates!!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love! This was our first Thanksgiving in our RV, which was such a relaxing and special time. Having lived in Florida for a few years now, and never going on theĀ Buccaneer Pirate Cruise, we decided to join in on the fun! I highly recommend this if you’re ever near or around the Destin area! The crew was amazing, made sure all the kids were having fun, and even had such a positive and uplifting message to all the kids! It truly was a wonderful experience! We hope you enjoy this video, and as always like, comment, subscribe for more videos!

Big Kahunas & Mugshots

It’s Father’s Day weekend, a sunny Florida summer day, so what’s better than hanging at the local campground? Heading to the water park, of course! We’ve had several friends go, so we figured we would see what all the fuss was about! It was such a wonderful day running around being silly, floating and relaxing in tubes, and of course taking on the slides! I’d say B’s first water park trip was a success!

Non-beachy things at the Beach – Emerald Coast Style

We’ve spent a fair amount of time with friends and family all over the Emerald Coast of Florida and always enjoy every minute of it. I thought I’d take some time to share some of our favorite things to do aside from the beach, as well as other recommended non-beachy places that are still on our to-visit list!
