What Every Dog Owner Ought to Know About Philadelphia – Pennsylvania – USA

What Every Dog Owner Ought to Know About Philadelphia – Pennsylvania – USA

As with all big city reviews, I am daunted by the task of sharing enough information to do justice to what we experienced in Philadelphia without being too long winded or bogged down with details.

Walking the Wissahickon Valley Park Trail (Forbidden Drive) with Your Dog

Something I love about living in our Nation’s Capital is that we have the advantages of the city with quick access to the country. A quick hop in our car and 20 minutes from home, we are in the deep woods over the Canadian shield, on a trail in the Gatineau Park. We have the [...]

Enjoy the Wonder of Philadelphia’s Magic Garden With Your Dog!

One of the oddest pet-friendly places we discovered in Philadelphia was the colourful, eccentric, and mind boggling Philadelphia Magic Garden. We stumbled upon this mosaicked folk art and sculpture garden when we did a Google search for the top 20 things to see or do in Philly. The Magic Garden kept showing up in our [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know About Atlantic City, New Jersey

When the bipeds said we were going to Atlantic City and would walk the Boardwalk, I was eager to go!

Four days at the beach is a perfect way to start a holiday and an even better way to recover from a terrible cold. Ask Mom. Suzanne of The Boomeresque, her husband Steve, and sweet pup Dino invited us to come “to the shore” with them before we visited Philadelphia. As luck would have it, Mom [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know About Binghampton – NY – USA

One of the things that make road-trips fun are the stops you make along the way. Being in the car and seeing nothing but highway isn’t my idea of a good time, but I can manage it for a while if I know that we will stop to explore and discover new sites. This is [...]

We have been doing a lot of driving lately. We have travelled more kilometers (miles) in the last four months than we normally do in a year.

Update on the First “Montecristo Travels” Children’s Travel Story Book!

So much has happened since I made my announcement about the upcoming book. There is a slow and steady hum of activity with the book and, Dear Reader, so much excitement that I can barely contain myself!
