Have you been?

One of the luxuries that was so difficult to lose in 2020 was travel. My hubs and I had taken a trip to Barcelona in 2019 and we were so looking forward to our next international trip when the pandemic hit. It felt like our wings had been clipped just when we had caught the travel bug.

It did however, get us brainstorming other ways to get away, as I'm sure it did for many.

One of my favorite things that we did last year was booking a cabin in the middle of nowhere. It was peaceful and serene. We drank wine, cooked delicious meals, hiked... and never turned on a single electronic device.

It was bliss.

I believe many people started looking for new lodging and ways to travel last year. I think Airbnb rentals were high on the list. In fact, Airbnb was able to compile a list of the most bookmarked and booked places in each state.

Here's what they found for us:

It's no wonder this was a big deal in 2020. I saw many reports that alcohol sales were up last year so I'm not surprised we wanted to learn more about what was in our glass.
