Rustic Weekend Getaway to Virginia

A major perk to living in Washington, DC is its proximity to beautiful countryside in surrounding Maryland and Virginia. This always makes for perfect weekend getaways! At the tail-end of summer, we were in search of a getaway to round off the season and what better way to do that than with a couples trip into the Virginia countryside.

Top Airbnbs in Jordan

Between the bustling cities, magnificent ruins, dry deserts and waterfront towns facing the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba, a  vacation to Jordan is calling your name. Plus, the people are known for the hospitality and welcoming nature, and tend to be happy to help out if you need directions. Given this generally welcoming attitude, we recommend adopting the attitude yourself and getting to know the local people and local cultures in the best way possible -- by staying in a local home. From city center apartments to country houses, here are the best Airbnbs in Jordan.

Our First Airbnb Experience

 Surprisingly, Carrie and I only recently stayed in our first Airbnb. Our first stay happened to be in the home of Airbnb, San Francisco. On a recent work/leisure trip to San Francisco I had the chance to experience both accommodation options in the city-a hotel in Union Square, which I won’t name and an Airbnb in the Mission, which I will happily promote.
