Have plane, train or automobile - will travel! My son (12) and I love to "go". No matter where in the world we may be, we prefer staying at houses and apartments. It enhances the experience to feel like a "local".
Our place is a big, old, historic property, walking distance to downtown Saluda, NC. The town is a step back in time, quiet sidewalks, benches and ice cream cones.
When I am not working, I am playing in the dirt or working on a home project. While my son is not in school, he is hanging out in his tree house or up in a tree. At night, you can find us both with our feet up by a backyard campfire.
I own a small wine and beer shop in Asheville right now. My life has always revolved around food and wine...and wine and food....and then came my 12-year old.
