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 […]

Flying to Dubrovnik airport with a small dog is a breeze. It’s small. Why do I love small airports, Dear Reader? I just do. I know I’ve said it before and I guess it hasn’t changed because, once again, I was so happy to be dealing with smaller airports—this time in Croatia. Zagreb airport is relatively small—more on that later—but the airport for Dubrovnik? It’s wonderfully small. And so […]

Considering I write a blog on the very topic of with-small-dog-travel, it is shocking that it has taken me this long to write an umbrella post on air travel with your small dog. So it is time for me to fix that situation and give you a basic, Air Travel With a Small Dog 101 or if you prefer Air Travel With a Small Dog Tips! First, what does […]

Why should I write about flying to Amsterdam Airport with a small dog? Well, you know you’re a serious traveller when you follow the votes for the best airports every year. It’s like the Oscars, only without the fanfare. And I get totally excited when I can say, “Wow, I made it to three of those!” This year’s winners? Take a look. (PS – How #10 even got […]

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 lens. As we approached for our landing at Nice Airport, my tummy got […]

I have told you about flying Olympic Airways and staying at the Sofitel Athens Airport Hotel, but it occurred to me that I didn’t review the airport itself. But what can I tell you about an airport?  Is Athens any different than any other? Athens International Airport is the primary civilian airport serving Athens  and the surrounding area, and is the major hub and base of Olympic Air. The […]

It has been a long … long… time since the bipeds have been so utterly impressed with an airport. I know, an airport sounds boring right? But bear with me as I tell you why Munich Airport (MUC) is a completely different beast. As the second busiest airport in Germany in terms of passenger traffic (behind Frankfurt) it handled 38,360,604 passengers in 2012. that is a LOT of people! It is […]

Today’s post will be short and sweet. We rarely do airport reviews; after all, someone else is doing it better than we would. (Thanks, Mary-Alice!)  But, sometimes you just feel compelled to write a review because something is either so terrible you must put it “out there” or something is so fabulous you just have to share. Our review of Washington Airport is because of the latter. Washington […]

  A reader asked me this question: “I was wondering what is involved in taking a dog through security? Do they stay in their crate? Do they have to go through the metal detector? Or the new scanners?” – Dawn This is a good – and frequent – question. I’ll do my best to demystify the process and let you know exactly what to expect.  I have found […]

It was time I did this. An Ottawa Airport with a dog review. I mean it’s our hometown airport. You’d think I would have done this already! But nope… so first, a bit of background information because it’s actually pretty neat! At the turn of the millennium, the Ottawa Airport Authority announced plans to build the new Macdonald-Cartier Airport to replace the one in use since 1960.  It was built […]
