On rainy days like today I dream of far away places, tropical and historical. Settings that transport you away for a little R and R. Scratching that travel itch and replenishing the mind and spirit.
We all know about airline discount sites, such as Travelocity and Expedia. But there are also websites for discounted hotel stays in luxurious suites and exotic locations.
Of AirBnB is the En Vogue trend of the moment, heck even Jay Z and Beyonce stayed at an upscale apartment through them for Super Bowl this year. AirBnB is great especially if you are staying for long periods. For shorter trips their is among many websites Gilt Travel.
If you live in a city, you might be familiar with Gilt City offering you a wide variety of activities at discounted prices. I have tried everything from wine tastings to pole dancing to spa treatments. It is great way to experience what the city has to offer as well as meet new people without selling your kidneys.
With Gilt Travel it is along the same lines with reasonable prices at luxurious resorts and spas how can you not spring for that getaway to a secret oasis amongst the dreary April showers?
What are some of your favorite places to travel or you dream about?
