  Oh, how we dislike thinking about our own disasters or death, but it really is the smart thing to do. It’s also the kindest thing we can do for those who love us and would have to take care of things should something awful happen. And all of this planning is especially important because the bipeds have a dependent: Me! We know who my guardian is should […]

This Pet Friendly Wedding Had Dogs IN The Wedding Party! Montecristo Travels

It’s not every day that we sit down in our Ottawa appartment to Skype with beloved friends living all the way in Washington, DC. And what happened next? We never saw it coming. Not in a million years. We were completely floored when they surprised us by uttering the words: “Would you three do us the honour of being in our wedding party?” Instantly Mom squealed (she did. […]

Saving for travel

“The importance of money flows from it being a link between the present and the future.” –John Maynard Keynes Over time, I’ll tell you about the many things we are doing to save money for our travels, but I don’t think any of our methods will be nearly as much fun as the game the bipeds have been playing for years now. You ready? The game is “Feeding […]

Thanks to this amazing little intimate group I was invited to join called… get this “Positive Vibes” (so awesome) I am not the only one writing about inspiration this week: take a look at Backroad Ramblers here for some great photo inspiration, Tangled in Food (You got to eat!) here, and The Adventure Dog Blog here for some great hiking and “connecting with your dog” inspiration!

Prague - dog pet friendly museum Montecristo travels

  I rarely write about a specific museum. Normally I enjoy combining several stops in one post. I prefer to tell you about an entire town and what to visit there, always favouring the walking tour approach. For larger cities, I’ll even end up doing several walking tours because options are good! But there are exceptions, like the Magic Gardens in Philadelphia, and today’s post is one such […]

She Asked. He Said YES. As Dog is their Witness. A proposal 2 years in the Making! Montecristo Travels and Flytographer.

HUGE announcement! She asked. He said yes! The bipeds are engaged! And it only took Mom TWO YEARS to plan this — THIS — perfect moment that took place a few weeks ago during our trip to Prague (September 14th to be exact). As travel bloggers you knew it would be during a travel spree right? But two years to plan a proposal? I guess it is true what they say: […]

On a glorious Saturday afternoon, I watched Mom and Dad get all dressed up—and I mean dressed up, Dear Reader! Complete with hat, hand-painted silk summer dress, fancy LV bag, and shoes for Mom, and for Dad, fancy Italian shoes, hat, bowtie, vest, and pocket watch. They were going all out! This was unusual in that normally weekends are more dress down kinds of days for the bipeds. […]

Travelling With a Dog Pet Peeves Stink eye!

  As I now approach a full six years (Wait. Woa. What?) of being a travelling canine, I have to admit, even if reluctantly, that there are certain things my pawsitive energy can’t always overcome. You could call them “pet peeves.” (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) I like to call them “items for the poop list” or, in layman terms, “The Shit List.” In this blog, I like to […]

How very strange that I have not yet written this post, Dear Reader. Perhaps it’s because I shy away from anything that looks like a product review, but it is time that I share with you the top 10 things to look for when purchasing an airline-approved pet carrier. It’s likely to be the most important purchase you’ll make for international travel with your small pet! And just […]

As much as I love sharing my adventures and projects with you, Dear Reader, I am not as comfortable tooting my own horn. Once a year on our blog anniversary, I reflect on what we have done and achieved, but honestly, other than that I don’t go around poofing out my chest fur and getting all “Look at me.” But you know what? This time … ? This […]
