We LOVE watching the show Tiny House Nation.
From their website: In “Tiny House Nation,” renovation experts and hosts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, travel across America to show off ingenious small spaces and the inventive people who live in them, as well as help new families design and construct their own mini-dream home in a space no larger than 500 square feet. From a micro-apartment in New York City to a caboose car turned home in Montana to a micro-sized mobile home for road tripping – this is a series that celebrates the exploding movement of tiny homes. From pricey to budget friendly, “Tiny House Nation” is not a typical design show, but one that proves size doesn’t always matter – it’s creativity that counts.
The idea of living in a tiny home is really intriguing to us since this lifestyle requires owners to do many things we will need to do as digital nomads. The biggest and usually hardest thing is to cut down on the amount of "stuff" they have in order to fit in their home. Read about our first attempt at paring down our stuff for our life of travel.
Why choose a tiny house? It's committing to a life of experiences over a life of accumulating "stuff". It's less to maintain, much lower in cost and maintenance (for most people) and often these house are built to be mobile! Many of them are built on flat bed trailers and can be secured enough to move to a new location.
So do you like the idea or are you already considering buying or building a tiny house? Why not "test drive" a tiny house before you consider buying or renting one?
Bemidji MN is part of what all we Minnesotans call "Up North" and being so means that things are a little more relaxed...and sparse. So when we started our Airbnb search for our night in Bemidji, Minnesota before we headed up to the Northwest Angle, we were very surprised to come across this little gem of a listing that was not only reasonably priced, but offered a very unique experience.
We've really enjoyed using Airbnb as you well know by now and this time around we came across a listing that was a little out of the norm and sounded like fun. Not a room or a house or an apartment....a luxury RV!
Getting caught up a bit on my posts from our Florida trip! We were very happy to find this little cute little Airbnb in North Miami. The Art Room was just a short drive from Miami Beach which is where we were hoping to explore before we headed down to the Keys.
In an effort to save a few dollars and try out something new, we booked our Portland stay through Airbnb. We carefully looked at all the traveler reviews of the different hosts and their accommodations before booking our stay. We are pretty open-minded travelers but do rely heavily on the collective opinions of other travelers and their reviews and comments to pick safe options and good bargains.
