One of the great things about having a blog—aside from sleeplessness, the abject humiliation of Google ads and exacerbation of pre-existing ADD—is that people send you all kinds of links to sites you didn’t know about. One of our happiest new discoveries (really) is Jauntsetter, a travel site for women—no, not womyn—published by Dorothy McGivney, a former Google employee who cashed in her stock for tens of millions and went off on a trip around the world, thus gathering material for a travel blog.
Actually we made up the tens of millions, but if you don’t believe the travel-blog part, see Jauntsetter’s guide to Labor Day weekend trips, which has deals like the $90 rooms at Roosevelt Inn in Hyde Park (above), the $116-a-night rates at the achingly chic Donovan Hotel in DC and $164 roundtrip tickets on USAir to Somesville Maine, where rooms at the stately Claremont Hotel (right, so cute we wanna keep it for ourselves) start at $125 a night. And much more! We’re bookmarking this one.
