Hey HN!

I built this website with my wife to help people find hand-curated, pre-planned weekend getaways for 2 people (with a friend or as a couple) and to make traveling on a budget easier.

We've always loved traveling together, but pretty often hear from friends that they hate the planning aspect of travel (don't know where to go or what to do), or that they can't take off work/watch kids long enough to go on a vacation. So we started digging into the idea of helping people go on short weekend trips that also have a fun itinerary planned.

This is my first adventure into the world of B2C businesses, so any feedback would be awesome.

I was immediately drawn to the idea of a getaway that involved alpacas somehow because I love those woolly guys and greatly enjoyed llama trekking. The page looks well put together though, well done and best of luck!

A getaway involving alpacas sounds like a fun idea! Will look into that for next week.

It just spins forever for me.

That shouldn't happen, but the servers may have been at capacity (sometimes that happens). Would you mind sharing the location you're searching?

Washington DC/ Baltimore Region

Sort by price would be nice.

Working on that. Thanks for the feedback. :)
