so it's official - tim and i bought tickets to fly to Halifax this summer. it's really our first big vacation where we're just hanging out sightseeing and not meeting up with people. very different. but with the expense of tickets/renting a car/gas...we're trying to stay places that are cheap. this means 2 star bed and breakfasts. you can find some that are lower than even backpacker's hostels and stuff. but it's been a pretty funny search. some b&bs are really just an extra room down the hall from where the owners sleep...which i'm not a huge fan of. some pretty crazy decor. the best are the things that they advertise that their suites have. my favourite luxury that's i've seen recently? "complimentary use of our acoustic guitar"
