The Small, Small World

An American friend goes to Abu Dhabi for a year and runs into someone who knows her dear friend back in the States. I am watching The Voice on television and realize there are two people in my Facebook feed who have friends in the show’s national competition. I go see an off-Broadway play about poet Emily Dickinson and it becomes clear I have some meaningful things in common with her. It’s a small world, as the song goes. And then I watch Homeland and the world seems so vast. Many of my fellow Americans are tangled in covert operations

I is for Innovation

Airstream founder Wally Byam not only created Airstream, Inc. but also challenged us “to strive endlessly to stir the venturesome spirit.” He also encouraged us all “to open a whole world of new experiences.” And today, here at Airstream, we love that Airstream travel trailers allow people to live the life of their dreams, just as Wally intended. People live, play, rest, travel and work in their Airstreams, and we have the privilege of hearing stories about how people use their travel trailers in a way that suits them perfectly. Today we want to focus on not just people who

A Stampede of Color and Design

The naysayers will try to convince you there is no value in hanging out on Facebook or engaging in Twitter, but I pooh-poohed that in 2009 when Facebook was the connector for a fabulous trip to Italy. While that’s an outsized example of what social media can do, I get so many ideas from scrolling my timeline and seeing what people are up to. That’s how I happened on my cousin and her husband visiting The Stampede Outdoor Art Exhibition in Hopewell, N.J., which is actually 68 hand-painted oxen placed in locales all over the suburban town. My 11-year-old niece seemed

The Airstream Community

Community: a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. While the Airstream community may not “live” in one specific place, there is a community that has grown across the country among Airstreamers. Community is an important and amazing thing. When you surround yourself with people who have similar characteristics, interests, and goals as you, you tend to find that “doing life” is a bit more enjoyable and full of great adventures. We recently released a new

Day Trippin’, Yeah

If the rumor is even remotely true that the Northeast is in for another whopper of a winter, I am feeling the pressure to get out and about while the going is good and the roads are clear. Last year it felt like we were living in ice caves for a while there. This time around – who knows? I’m taking early weather predictions on the dire side as an excuse to load up my calendar with day trips now. Nancy the Explorer, open to going all points two hours north, south and west from her New Jersey home (east

Transported by a Festival

The smell of kettle corn is in the air. One of the fun things about living in an urban environment is proximity to not just restaurants and stores but events like concerts, literary readings and festivals. And by proximity I mean walking distance. As it happens, I live a few short steps from my town’s main drag, so our recent Arts and Music Festival seemed like a great time to transport myself to a world where others’ creativity is on display. To boot, it was a chance to have a few friends to my place for mimosas and a little

Letting Curiosity Lead the Way

I’ve enjoyed a picnic at the beautiful, sacred Newark Indian Burial Mounds in Newark, Ohio. I’ve had a spot-on ice cream sundae at the Cow Palace in Shelbyville, Indiana. I’ve visited the storied Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico. All wonderful experiences. All asides to trips planned for other reasons. In other words, none of those was a destination, but each one made me richer in my travel life, in my whole life. I’ve been reading a lot of articles lately about how best to travel, how smart and cool it is to do non-tourist-y things or how a bucket
