The world is at our fingertips, and last night I did a crazy thing: I booked a 4-night stay in a lakeside cabin south of Stockholm.
Comfortably ensconced on my chaise lounge with a glass of red wine at my side, I was scrolling through the lodgings offered on Airbnb. I’ve only stayed in one Airbnb before, years ago in Montreal.
The images of this lakeside cabin ‘spoke’ to me, and I impulsively booked it. (How many glasses of wine did I have?) No, really, I crave nature, beautiful vistas and quietude. There’s a lot of noise in my life, especially at work.
I’ve never been to Sweden before, or any of the Nordic countries. I’ve been wanting to go for years. How wonderful that we can travel the world and book (at whim or otherwise) our next vacation with just a few simple clicks.
