A stroll on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France on a beautiful late summer day in 2015 (above banner pic)… nothing to worry about. But we all remember the mini van incident a year later… right? With terrorist attacks in cities that we’ve considered safe, political turmoil, and natural disasters wreaking havoc, it’s easy to feel like the planet is increasingly dangerous and hate is on the […]

Cake for all!

Dear Reader, there are a lot of things that make a city really pet friendly. Access for pets on public transit or to sites.  There is also the overall vibe you get from locals and how they treat their own pets. But for us… the ability to dine together is likely THE most important. It’s a reason we favour Europe for the most part. Sadly, North America tends […]

There comes a time in every puppy’s life when you have to graduate from the crib to the big kid bed. That happened to me when I turned 3 so … a few years back now. I used to have some cute teddy bear stuff in pale blue. But those days were over. I was not a baby … ahem … puppy anymore. So, when my bipeds sat […]

Dear Reader I am sensing a pattern. It seems that many of the big European cities have huge hills that are the main park. I first stumbled upon this in Nice and then again in Prague when we discovered Petřín Hill.  And I’m not talking about a little park or some artificially made spaces here, no no no. We are talking acres of land. Well, we found yet […]

Over the years we’ve done some fun things when visiting a new place for the first time. Some of them are even considered really touristy but we don’t care! I’ve enjoyed the view from the top of a hop-on-hop-off bus in Rome, taken a seaplane ride from Split to Pula, hopped a Ski lift up Vitosha Mountain, had the wind in my fur biking the marvelous ring road of […]

  The web is awash with information on how to take photographs of your pets OR how to take great photographs while traveling. There does seem to be a bit of a gap when it comes to combining the two. So, although we are far from experts and will never be professional photographers, we have been asked by enough readers what our approach is to feel that perhaps […]

Looking cool!

I was recently asked to cat-sit my cousins felines for a few days. You see, Cali and Oakley aren’t travelers, not like Bolt and Keel. No, they were born as feral cats and have come to enjoy the comforts of home. And anyway, the museums, restaurants and shows of NYC that my cousin was going to frequent aren’t’ exactly pet friendly. It was better this way. I agreed […]

If our day in its capital city Bratislava is anything to go by, Slovakia will be worth a return visit. It’s only an hour away from Vienna and inexpensive to get to from there: 3 Euro per person on a bus a bit more if you want to hop on a train. You can of course opt for a more expensive option and buy a package that provides you […]

When an article such as the one about the poor dog dying on a United Flight in an overhead bin shows up in my news feed on FB my heart breaks. It breaks for the unnecessary death of the pet. It breaks for the family that lost a loving companion in a horrible preventable way. It breaks for the airline staff that either did not know what was happening or […]

I can hear you all the way over here. Pet friendly how? What is “Urban Baroque”? And isn’t a Pagan wedding known as a Handfasting? Well then allow me to share with you some memorable moments of my bipeds recent wedding! Note: All photos by Eva Hadhazy. Pet Friendly – My Dog Guest List I had my own guest list! There were my two friends you may recall from the epic […]
