Thanks to all who came out the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle to help us celebrate our latest milestone (beta, baby!) and to get a preview of our product.

Wanderlust Society’s mission of “friends help friends travel plan” was accomplished even at this small gathering. Our guests added a few new places to the site that might just inspire my next vacation.

Here are a few discoveries via the site:

Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn

Step back in time and relax in the grandpa room at Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn, Big Sur, CA.

Back in the 90s on the epic Baja trip, my husband and I drove the coast of California along the way. While our only stop was a at picturesque gas station as we passed through Big Sur to get motion sickness medicine for our poor dog, I made a note that I wanted to return for a longer visit one day. Our guest Gilia mentioned a special place in Big Sur called Deetjen’s that only accept reservations made via the old fashioned phone. A place like this could inspire another road trip for me with this place being the final destination.

Another guest, Jennifer, said she’s planning an east coast trip this summer with her family. Her kids wanted to break out of their west coast rut, so Jennifer found this lodging, Lodge on the Cove, in Kennebunkport, Maine:

Can I move here, please?

And finally, the most unusual place discovered Saturday night? Auroville. According to Jason, who has visited this place, “It is a ginormous meditation chamber that was a hippy colony in the 70s.”

Get your meditation on in the southern coast of India.

Looking for an usual adventure? Try finding your way to Auroville.

Thanks again to all who stopped in Saturday night. We appreciate the good vibes and support!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
