Airstream Oasis

The luxury of time and space can never be overrated. Though the space within the little silver bullet is compact, the access to a variety of different environments is endless. Just head down the road to experience another world. Instant change. Well, it may actually take a few hours or a few days ... . . but each fork in the road offers another adventure.
Pulling in to a shady grove of trees beside a river is a welcome oasis after the vast open desert. The electric scooters are the perfect means for exploring the rock walled canyon down a dusty road. Though the little black and white rug was intended for use in the "pits" at car races, it always makes me giggle to find it's at home in so many varied locales. Guess I also love it because it's a small nod to Madame Dorothy Draper.



Setting up camp includes setting out the traditional Trailer Trash pet - Pink Flamingos.

Ok, sign me up. An Airstream (with a gorgeous interior, luxury bedding, and a french press!) + Marfa, Texas... that sounds like a dream!

I've never been to Marfa, but it is definitely one on my list, and I'd love to travel in (and own!) an Airstream. I can't wait to see the rest of this trip!!

Thanks too for visiting and commenting on my blog. xx

I've been waiting for this! What a blast! That trailer is a trip. Is it yours? So chic. Had any good Chicken Fried Steaks along the way? Y'all be careful out there - watch out for them thar rattler snakes. Marfa or bust!
