It’s been quite a while since I’ve written here – not for the lack of topics as you’ll see soon enough! Last week, Syn and I went on vacation to a mountain town in Georgia called Helen. It was our first time renting an airbnb, and we had a wonderful experience.
Oh, and when you see all these pictures of bears around Helen, believe them. We actually saw a wandering bear back behind our rental cabin while we were out roasting marshmallows – that was quite a scare!
I have a few pictures to share from our trip. The neat thing about Helen is that it has a very German/Alpine aesthetic. We also went at just the right time of year – before it got too hot and too crowded. I can only imagine what this place might be like in the summer!
Our cabin was located in the woods, right across from the stream. Anytime you walked outside, there was a very woodsy and rustic smell in the air that I really loved.
The town of Helen certainly has its own look and feel! At nighttime, it’s all lit up.
We also stopped by the park which had a little river running through it. Apparently fishing and river tubing are big things there.
It’s certainly a place we’d like to return to – a few days is not long enough to see all there is to see! Now that we’ve got the experience under our belts, we can hopefully visit again and explore further!
