Hotels.com: Retro beach vacation? You had me at beach

Retro seashore vacation? You experienced me at seashore.

On very first look, the Accommodations.com offer to pay you $15,000 as a Retro Beach front Motelier appears like a very little significantly less than paradise. I usually hardly ever keep in a motel. But then, did not “Schitt’s Creek” make motels interesting once more? I imagine which is value some consideration.

Resorts.com has a contest to deliver a single individual to the ideal retro beach front motels across the U.S. – sites like The Pearl Resort in San Diego and the Vagabond Hotel in Miami.

The winner of the gig will get a $10k stipend to journey again in time, a $5k salary to devote on beachside snacks, and old-college seaside equipment like a striped umbrella, vintage sun shades, a photo voltaic-driven AM/FM radio and a Polaroid camera.

I completely by now rock the big sun shades and high-waisted swimsuits so this appears like a career that I’ve been planning for my entire lifestyle. And I’m a journalist. I have even published a humor guide – so I totally know how to have a very good time and make entertaining of myself at the expense of a superior column or photo.

Okay, certain, I’m betting a ton of 20-some thing Instagramers will be lining up for this opp. But hey, there is one thing to be explained for a 45-year-old with a lovable shih tzu sidekick who absolutely knows how to use a Polaroid camera.

Not to mention that I thoroughly currently rock the selfie – but my Insta and Fb accounts are personal so …. But my dog’s Insta is public so possibly they’ll see a little something there.

All I’m saying is that I’m completely down for the retro beach practical experience – and all set to embrace the look and sense of the ’50s. I imply my shih tzu sidekick is fully product materials – and my close friends are so fun and would absolutely love to arrive alongside for the practical experience (not to point out the amazing picture ops).

Arrive on Accommodations.com, you know you want to pick this previous woman to strike the road. I’ve obtained my weekender bag prepared.
