A Quick Travel Adventure in Flagstaff!

Being a Work-Life Balance and Leadership coach, one of the things I coach on is taking time away from work and enjoying life. I started this travel adventure blog to inspire others that you can take time away from work, whether it is a day, weekend, or a week-long or more vacation. It can be on a whim or planned out.

On this adventure, we took a two-day experience in the middle of the week to Flagstaff, Arizona. Downtown Flagstaff has a train depot in the center of downtown with lots of shops, restaurants, and bars.

A little history of how Flagstaff began it was a perfect location for providing a water supply for the train back in the 1800s; the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad began to lay track westward from Albuquerque to California. In 1882, Flagstaff became an established town with a railroad, livestock and lumber industries, and service industry of merchants, cafes, hotels, and saloons to serve the sheepherders, cowboys, loggers, and train travelers.

We stayed at a bed and breakfast called England House Bed and Breakfast. Wow, what a beautiful location, and the hosts are fantastic. We stayed in the Cellar Room. It was large and cozy. My husband thought the bed was a little too soft, if you like soft beds you will love it! All in all, it was a great stay. There is a gas fireplace in the room. I made the mistake of turning it on and couldn’t get it to shut off. It is on a timer, and I turned it too far. I’m sure in the wintertime the fireplace would be lovely. My husband opened the window, and it cooled down the room after the fireplace turned off. We had a good laugh about it.

The breakfasts and coffee were delicious. The hosts were friendly and generous with conversation and answering questions. The accommodations had many places to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Tom and I also took a walking tour of downtown Flagstaff. The battery in my camera went dead, so no photos this time around. 🙁

We enjoyed our short time in Flagstaff, and during our adventure, we met some friendly people at the bed and breakfast, from guests to staff along the way.
