Ciro (Washington DC): “I try my best to answer questions rather than introduce everybody to Google” We have a running series of interviews with our Airbnb hosts. Learn more about them here. We visited Washington DC for a week at the end of May – arriving on Mish’s birthday (28 May, in case you want to know for next time…). The first half of the birthday wasn’t exactly delightful (it took place on a Greyhound bus to DC), but the second half was amazing: we checked in to Ciro’s gorgeous,…

Mouldy muffins at Holl's Inn, Inlet, New York

On Day 1, I served a family of four so huge that they had to sit sideways around the table for breakfast (their legs were too fat to fit comfortably underneath). Here’s what the adult son ordered: four fried eggs, four slices of fried bread with peanut butter on the side, two muffins, one bowl of cereal, one fruit bowl, one hot chocolate with whipped cream, and one glass of chocolate milkshake with extra chocolate syrup.

Drinking coffee in Park Slope

Regular readers (hi Mum!) might have the impression we’re a bit obsessed with coffee. We have, after all, already rounded up our favourite coffee shops in Boulder, Colorado and Manhattan. But it’s not just about the coffee. Take it from two people who spend 24 hours a day in each other’s company – 12 of those hours staring at a computer screen: sometimes you’ve got to get out and be reminded that other people exist. And if you can combine that with a caffeine fix, all the better. So as…

Blog posts we’ve loved this week

This week we’ve had way too much fun at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, written way too many words (in way too many styles – damn you Americans and your Unnecessary Capitalization Of Titles), and had way too much coffee spurt out of our noses while catching up on old Modern Family episodes. While we’ve been doing that, our fellow bloggers have been keeping us entertained and informed with their tales of trying tiny hotels, struggling with Sweden, and getting ever more ambitious with advancing age. We salute them in this…
