GOTTA GET AWAY

Ever have one of those days where you just can't deal with all the bullshit anymore and you start combing through travel sites and airlines trying to imagine yourself anywhere but where you are at the moment? Well that's me a lot lately!
My favorite site to drop out for a while is airbnb  that's where I found this most awesome place to get away from it all, but still not too far from home. Great for a weekend away to recharge.
Just check it out a modern dream in the middle of nowhere. Off the Grid as they call it.
To wake up without people or buildings seems like heaven at the moment.
I know I shouldn't complain I am aware I live in sunny California and just a trip down to a (not so local) beach should do the trick and usually does. But, I just need to get away. 
A few weeks ago Emmett took a trip back in time down Route 66. Where He stopped at the famous Roy's and brought back pictures making us all want to take a little road trip of our own.
We are hoping to head out and do some shooting in April if our schedules allow. The hotel is abandoned and from what he said not one car passed by the whole time he was exploring the grounds. The Cafe is up and running and so is the gas station but it's still a ghost town and we can't wait to go explore and shoot for ourselves.

Now in need of some Comic Relief.
Red nose day is March 18th if you don't know what that is go see you still have time to save Misery!

 Well TGIF and Enjoy your weekend!

the place looks like a true haven, and I can totally get the wanting to get away vibe. The deserted hotel looks so Quentin tarantino, I can’t wait to see what that photo shoot will look like. Love the travel compilation because it is so divers. There are so many gorgeous places on earth, and once in a while we need to be reminded of that.

I totally understand where you're coming from. I'd love to just drop of the grid for a few weeks and not have to deal with people.

Totally and beyond in love with your blog. It's my new crush. My name's Anna, I'm a stylist and visual merchandiser in LA. I'm 23 years old and moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. I've been lucky enough since moving out here to work with some of LA's most respected designers. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.

It would be wonderful if I could just get away to a ghost town with absolutely no one and just relish the time for myself. I love the abandoned hotel; it kind of reminds me of the horror movies though but still, it sounds like a great idea to me! Thank you for sharing that travel link! xoxoxoo
