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 [...]

WOW! The Blog is Four! How did that happen?

WOW! The Blog is Four! How did that happen?

Every year on or around our blogiversary, I do a little soul searching and post a recap here on Montecristo Travels. (See last year’s blogiversary post here). It’s a bit self-serving to offer up my soul searching so I want to thank you for bearing with me on this yearly not-travel-related post. You see, Dear Reader, [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Nice – Côte d’Azur – France – Part II

From the Promenade du Paillon (Don’t miss Part I of my Nice City Review!), I went on to visit old Nice proper. Unlike so many of the towns and villages nearby, the old town of Nice does not have a large number of you-can’t-miss-this historical sites. But the old town is still absolutely charming, and [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Nice – Côte d’Azur – France – Part I

Our pied-à-terre while on the French Riviera … pied-à-terre … “foot on the ground,” a small living unit some distance away from an individual’s primary residence … pied-à-terre on the French Riveria … Doesn’t that sound just so fine?  And, oh, it was! Our pied-à-terre was in Nice, not too far from the lovely old [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Menton – Côte D’azur – France

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Menton – Côte D’azur – France

The colours, the ceramic doves… lovely! Since our trip to Florence, we’ve not found many spots that we felt we could call home – as in, “We could live here!” home. We always enjoy our visits to different locations, but few make us dream of staying and putting down roots. That was until Menton – [...]

What Dog Owners Need to Know About Èze Village – Côte D’Azur – France

What Dog Owners Need to Know About Èze Village – Côte D’Azur – France

Perched high up on an impressive cliff on the French Riviera is a jewel of a medieval town. It’s a wonderful place, one of the best medieval towns you could visit. Even with a fair amount of crowding, Èze is a must see. My tip? Get there early … as in before 9:00 a.m. early! [...]

What Dog Owners Should Know About Smiths Falls – Ontario – Canada

Promising right? One morning in August, Dad woke up and, just like that, announced, “Let’s go discover Smiths Falls.” Since Mom and I are always up for a little adventure, we quickly got ourselves ready and off we went: me with a dried sausage treat in my mouth, Mom and Dad with their morning vegan [...]

My First Travel Massive – Thank You, Philadelphia!

My First Travel Massive – Thank You, Philadelphia!

Have you ever noticed how you’ll do things when away from home that you haven’t, but could, do at home? It’s strange, right? Why is it travel invites us to explore and meet others in a way we don’t on home turf? Well, that happened to us in July when I attended my very first [...]

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. I am feeling even more trepidation because, unlike other big cities such as Paris and Rome which have shining posts [...]
