  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 […]

http://montecristotravels.com/blog/flying-united-airlines-with-an-in-cabin-pet/

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 […]

Taking a Bike Tour With your Dog in Vienna Montecristo travels

Although we did this on our third and last day in Vienna – we really wish we had started our stay with this. It was not only a lot of fun, but it was also a fantastic way for us to get the lay of the land. Almost as good as a walking tour! It’s the perfect way to decide what you may want to return to see […]

Get intimate with this wonderful quartet that makes up this unusual “with pet travelling family” and why they sold everything and hiked across Spain!

We have been doing a lot of driving lately. We have travelled more kilometers (miles) in the last four months than we normally do in a year. It started with a short trip to Toronto and Kleinburgh in May, then a long road-trip that took us through two provinces and three states visiting wonderful places such as Binghamton NY, Brigantine and Atlantic City on the Jersey Shore, splendid […]

Quebec City Frescos A Wonderfully Pet Friendly Activity!

We don’t often like to go to the same place twice, so what do you do when family obligations take you back to somewhere you’ve already been more than once?  To avoid boredom, you have to think a little outside the box! We love Quebec City. To say it is beautiful would truly be an understatement. It’s a wonderful place with so much to offer. From the perspective […]
