Fall Break in Asheville, NC
There is a benefit to having your husband travel 5 days out of the week……….Reward points!!!! We are able to rack up points and use them for hotels! We decided to take a weekend and go to one of our favorite places. We’ve come about 4 or 5 times before. It’s Asheville, NC.

Not only does Asheville have Biltmore Estates, but it has a beautiful town with lots of cool shops and restaurants and the mountains are all around!! This time, Nick used his points for a stay at Hotel Indigo. (They have a couple in Nashville.) It is a cool beautiful boutique hotel in downtown Asheville. Look at the pictures!!!

I used a Groupon coupon for the Jerusalem Garden Café. This was a Middle Eastern restaurant that cooked with fresh local ingredients. (I think most all of the restaurants do that here.) We also had entertainment with a band and a belly dancer. We had a three course meal and it was delicious. We started with a spinach pie as our appetizer, I had the chicken kabobs (I couldn’t make myself eat lamb!) and we had baklava for dessert.

We had fun and then we walked around downtown and looked at some of the interesting shops. (There are a lot of fair trade stores and I found some nice things for birthday gifts. We are back in our room calling it an early night. Who knows……maybe we will hike at Chimney Rock and visit a local church tomorrow?
