One of the best parts of this lifestyle – and a major benefit of being in Europe – is being able to travel frequently, easily, and relatively inexpensively to the continent. We’ve really been trying to take advantage and go to places that are a bit off the beaten path (for us at least).
Last month, we got a chance to go to the French Alps for a long weekend. We met up with two friends and rented a tiny little apartment in the town of Briançon, through Airbnb. We flew into Switzerland for about $200 roundtrip, and then rented a car to do the approximately 3 hour drive to the town. The town itself was pretty adorable (and is a Unesco World Heritage site), and completely fit my stereotype of what a European ski town would look like.
