WASHINGTON, DC | 23 SEPTEMBER 2013
Wanderlust doesn’t stop for us just because it isn’t quiiite summer anymore, and we simply couldn’t wait to get the Journelle Road Trip back in action. Washington, DC, you’ve been asking us to visit for a while, and here we come! Our shelves are lined with Fall’s freshest lingerie, we’ve stocked the bar with a bounty of bubbles, and we’re hitting the open road to bring our tricked-out Airstream + mobile fit salon down to the district. We’re very excited to break out some lacy underpinnings amidst Washington’s iconic architecture, and we can’t wait to take a joyride from H street to Dupont. Lucky for us, The Grey Lady loves traffic circles. Follow our adventures and get location updates @journellerdtrip + #journellerdtrip.

NEW YORK CITY | 10 SEPTEMBER 2013 One of our absolute favorite things about New York is the sense that anything can happen at any given moment, that wonder and beauty is unexpectedly hiding around every corner. You might be walking down the street minding your own business and BAM! there’s a huge tickertape parade or BAM! it’s Fashion Week and everywhere is a gorgeous photoshoot. Or BAM! there are trapeze artists swooping over the sidewalk or BAM! they’re filming an episode of Girls and Lena Dunham is sitting outside your favorite pizza place (this happened to us last Monday, we tried very hard to play it cool). When we brought The Grey Lady home last week after a summer of adventure we obviously couldn’t wait to share her with our hometown crew, but if we’re being honest, we were almost more excited about being someone’s BAM! moment. We hope you were walking en route to The Highline last Friday and BAM! there she was: A perfect, gorgeous airstream full of bubbly, beauty goodies from BeautyBar, and the loveliest lacies you could ever imagine parked right outside The Standard. Only in New York? BAM!

HELLO, NEW YORK | 06 SEPTEMBER 2013
The Journelle Road Trip has taken us far and wide this summer, and now, we’re finally coming back home. From the open road to the chicest streets, we are beyond excited for our sleek + silver Grey Lady to park it on the cobblestones of lower Manhattan, popping up filled with fall’s freshest styles and stocked with endless champagne—just in time for Fashion Week. Damn, it’s good to be home.

This is our kind of town, Chicago is. Between the “kind of people who smile at you” + “all that jazz,” we are really feeling what Mr. Sinatra was crooning about. Chicago gave The Grey Lady the warmest of welcomes (she got more than her fair share of honks + waves along the highway) and we Journelles were simply blown away with just how nice everyone was. We loved finally meeting some of our fave journelle.com customers face to face (we’ve been emailing for so long!), we were blown away by the gorgeous views of Lake Michigan at every turn, and we were totally down with the atmosphere in the Loop. The city was vibing + the Journelles, complete with our own Windy City inspired playlist, vibed back. Until next time, Chi-Town.

TARA COX | 14 AUGUST 2013
When writer Tara Cox saw her first Airstream trailer she was just a little girl, but it made a serious impression on her. After being hit with our own love-at-first-sight thunderbolt when we first cast our eyes on The Grey Lady, we have to say we understand the feeling. “Airstreams are wonderfully retro-futuristic, iconic, and look like they contain fantastic dreams of adventure inside that silver wrapper,” the Airstream expert says.  Fantastic dreams of adventure indeed. Tara’s fascination and passion for the sleek and streamlined trailers has only grown since that first sighting, so much, in fact, that her book about the silver bullets, “Airstream: The Silver RV” hits the shelves today. We sat down with the former editor of RVLiving to swap road stories and bask in the glory of mutual Airstream love.

What do you think of the recent re-emergence of airstreams on the scene?
I think it’s wonderful that Airstreams are gaining popularity again. I love that folks are getting creative with their own travels. I really think roadside Americana is an important yet neglected part of American history. There’s so many incredible things to see here whether they are natural or ambitious, passionate kitsch.  

What’s the most interesting use of an airstream that you’ve seen?
I’d have to say that my absolute favorite use of the trailer is down in Florida. The Airstream Ranch, inspired by the Cadillac Ranch, consists of 7.5 Airstreams carefully placed nose-down in a row by the side of the highway. it’s wonderful roadside Americana art!

If sky was the limit on what you could do with an airstream, how would you retrofit it?
Wow. If there was no limit, I might have to have two: a vintage trailer and a shiny new one with a Christopher Deam-designed interior.  My vintage airstream would be a little pod of joy. If I used it as a guest house or summer house, maybe I’d put in a bathtub to make it extra special. And if the sky’s the limit…I’d plop it on the beach at Coney Island permanently.

Do you think you’d be able to live on one?
I lived in a Manhattan apartment that was smaller than a Class A motorhome (and had fewer amenities!). I could live in an Airstream in one place, but there is also a part of me that wants to be a gypsy, settling in different areas for stretches of time before moving on to the next and with the way the world works now, this is easier than ever to do. I love the idea of life on the go. 



So do we, Tara, so do we.

CHICAGO | 12 AUGUST 2013
She did the Hamptons, she did Boston and now, The Grey Lady is doing Chicago. Chicago is our kind of town. We’ve had a love affair with the city ever since we saw Ferris Bueller belting out “Twist and Shout” cruising down Michigan Avenue. And the feeling is mutual—the lovely ladies of Chi-town have been asking us when we’re coming to visit for years now and we’re very excited to finally be bringing our Grey Lady to the Windy City. We’ll be north of the river, west of the lake, playing on the pier + taking in the views from the top of the Willis. Hey, Chicago, whaddya say? We say we can’t wait to hang out. Follow our intro to the Great Lakes (+ Chicago style pizza) on @journellerdtrip + #journelletrip.
