What Every Dog Owner Should Know About Chalon-sur-Saône – Burgundy – France

I don’t know if I’ve told you this, Dear Reader, but my maternal grandma lives in Burgundy. Yep! Right on the wine route too! Pretty sweet, right?     My grandma and her hubby are philosophers. They also run a B&B on the wine route, and my bipeds and I were to be their guests [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Visiting Dolceacqua – Liguria – Italy

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Visiting Dolceacqua – Liguria – Italy

The fun thing about being on the Côte d’Azur in France is how easy it is to dip into Italy, even if for just a few hours. Since formation of the European Union, there isn’t even a border crossing worth mentioning. Nice! That is how I ended up visiting Dolceacqua. Dolce/aqua means “sweet water.” It’s [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Visiting Haut-de-Cagnes – Côte d’Azur – France

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Visiting Haut-de-Cagnes – Côte d’Azur – France

If  you are looking for St. Paul de Vence without the tourists, tourist prices, and crowds, then Haut-de-Cagnes is the place for you! Hands down, it is the most authentic and quiet – as in sleepy – medieval village we visited. Haut-de-Cagnes still provides you with everything you could desire: history-laden stones; narrow streets decorated with climbing, [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Visiting St. Paul de Vence – Côte d’Azur – France

I was worried. I always have a sense of trepidation when going somewhere super-duper popular with tourists because I hate being in a tangle of feet (or scooped up) as the bipeds try to navigate us through hordes of tourists shuffling along shoulder to shoulder. No matter how lovely or amazing a location, that problem [...]

To the East of Nice and West of Monaco at the foot of Mont Boron, Mont Alban and Mont Vinaigrier is the small town of Villefranche.  It’s been gobbled up as a suburb of Nice but you would never know. It’s still very much its own little town. Insisting that it be referred to by [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Visiting Mougins – Côte d’Azur – France

The hilltop and forest of Valmasque Park have been occupied since before the Romans … but honestly? For once I did not care about the history of a place. I mean I did … but … there was something more enticing calling us to the village of Mougins. But, because I know that you, Dear [...]

What Every Dog Owner Ought to Know About Visiting Monaco!

Call me spoiled, Dear Reader, but I was a little bummed on our last trip. See, I collect a flag patch for every new country I visit, but because I had already been to France, I would only have one new patch to collect on this trip — one from Switzerland. But I forgot about [...]

Are You Flying to Nice Airport (NCE)? A Dogs Airport Review

Are You Flying to Nice Airport (NCE)? A Dogs Airport Review

I always look forward to seeing a new airport. I’m not sure why really. I mean, it’s just an airport, right? Perhaps because I was so impressed by the airport in Amsterdam (more on that in a later post) and the one in Munich, I have started to look at airports through a more discerning [...]
