Take a WEbook Staycation: WEbookers Writing about the World

07:00

Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about the staycation. Apparently, more and more people are choosing
not to take flights or road trips, and are using their vacations to stay home
and get pedicures instead. According to MSNBC, it all has something to
do with the combination of high gas prices and something called a “recession.”



I wouldn’t know about that. But until Donald Trump returns the private jet he borrowed from me last
Christmas, I’m afraid I’m stuck at home along with everyone else. Lucky for me, I’ve got WEbook to keep me entertained. My fellow WEbookers hail from all over
the globe, and they’re all here to share their stories. Who needs Paris when I’ve got “The
Real Paris
?”



If Donald Trump stole your jet, too, here’s a list of
great WEbook projects that
are guaranteed to transport you somewhere other than your living room.
