Another month and another trip…I seem to be traveling quite a bit lately. Not necessarily by design, a lot of the trips have been last minute, but this one has been in the works for a while now.
I really wanted to go on a real vacation and I really neeeeded to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter 🙂 Yes, I am a 30-something and I freaking love Harry Potter – deal with it. However, I knew that I wasn’t going to spend almost a week with just Harry Potter. So, to get the most out of the trip it was split into 2 parts:
1) St. Augustine and the beach
2) Harry Potter
For this reason, this trip will be presented as a two-part blog!
Let’s Getaway! Recently, I took a trip to a Getaway House – a tiny cabin outside of Washington D.C. Work had been crazy stressful and I just needed a few days to unwind and not worry about anything…and The Getaway House was just what I needed.
Now, let’s back up a couple of years to 2015. I read a story about a Harvard Business School student who decided to launch a business where tiny houses/cabins were rented for weekends out of the city. I was ready to sign up!
My family and I used to camp a lot when I was younger and I don’t do it nearly enough now. I thought the Getaway houses would be perfect! I don’t have to pack up the tent and bring all the equipment. I would just need to show up to my tiny cabin! Plus, I mean who doesn’t love the thought of a tiny cabin…I mean really!
The rub back in 2015 was that the cabins were only located outside of Boston. That is quite the commute for a weekend trip from Maryland. So, I continued to follow the company’s success and just hoped that they would spring up a little closer to home.
Then, finally this year I saw the news – Getaway was coming to Washington D.C.!!!! I knew there was a trip to the tiny cabins in my future it was just a matter of when!
So, since I have taken my trip I wanted to review the experience for you. Up front, I just want to say that it was 100% worth it and I plan to go again ASAP 🙂
