Airstream Goodness

While getting lunch yesterday I saw an adorable Airstream trailer parked at a gas station. I pondered what adventures lie ahead for this little gem...a cross country trip, a wilderness adventure, or a trip to visit the in-laws? Feeling inspired, I set out to find my own dreamy Airstream via Google and flickr. Plus, I found interior Airstream spaces, which were both modern and efficient. Makes me happy to see these compact and vintage homes-on-wheels, especially with all the McMansions out there.

Wouldn't it be great to own one and go on a road trip?! And how about that car in the last photo - so cute!

When we first moved to our home, I was taking a walk in our new neighborhood through the alleys and back roads. I was so delighted to come across a vintage airstream in perfect condition!! I see the people coming home in it every once in a while. I'd love to go on a non-agenda road trip in that thing :)

airstreams have a special place in my heart...like house boats and tree houses.

have you ever heard about the shady dell in bisbee arizona? it's hotel-like accommodations but in airstreams. it's kitsch and cute :)

diana @ please sir said...

I have not heard of that particular place, but I saw in my airstream research of some hotels starting to do that. Sounds fun!

I have dreamed of having my own adorable Airstream for years! And one day I will have one, and decorate her up so cute. We will hit the open road and see every quirky roadside attraction, and eat at every old dinner along the way! Bliss!

These photos make me want to hop in the car with an Airstream in tow and hit the road. Love!

Antonia said...

I was doing an airstream search and found your post. Just had to tell you that I live full-time in a more than 30 year old airstream. Yep. I'm one of those people who said "f... it" and hit the road. I'm not retired. I do still work (or am recently back at it) and highly recommend this lifestyle.

Thanks for the post and the delicious photos.
