Taking advantage of the inexpensive transportation option with your dog is really easy in the Czech Republic. Maybe not as streamlined and intuitive to figure out (as a foreigner) as say … Switzerland… but it’s pretty darn amazing. The reason I say this,  has nothing to do with its pet friendliness; because it IS very pet friendly. No, our caveat has more to do with some areas being tougher […]

Perrin Hill Prague Montecristo Travels

No matter where in the world we may be and especially in a big city; I keep an eye out for great pet friendly parks. In Prague I found a gold star winner: Petřín Hill.  What do I look for in a city park? Well obviously it has to be safe but beyond that I am in search of a good hike; something a bit challenging. It doesn’t have […]

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. […]

The great thing about looking for a little pet-friendly place to rent in Prague is that there are options. Loads of options. A quick search in TripAdvisor, FlipKey or AirBnB results in hundreds of choices. I love that. It tells me ahead of time what I can expect culturally. The large number of pet friendly spots to choose from, told me that the Czech Republic was going to be […]

On a rainy morning in Prague, we rented a car to drive 2 to 3 hours south to the beautiful town of Český Krumlov. I was extra happy that day because after a week of flying solo with the bipeds, we were going to meet up with our dear friends Michaela and Jeremy, and their two Chi, Chloe and Oliver. They were in town for their wedding, to […]

One day we woke up and could see that Mother Nature was uncertain as to what she was going to wear that day. Was it going to be blue skies and warm rays of sunshine? Or maybe cool grey with a hint of late summer breeze, something more melodramatic, complete with rain and menacing clouds? Who knew? In case of the latter, our first instinct was to stay […]

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 […]

“Bone Church” — THAT was pretty much all the bipeds had to say to make me agree 100% with the idea of going to Kutná Hora. Plus it’s not like it was that far from Prague, our home base in the Czech Republic. So we hopped on a train and set out. Luckily, we encountered a helpful ticket master who told us that the little train that you […]

Writing this blog and keeping our promise to you, dear Reader, to report on pet friendliness we find in the world, keeps me focused when I sit down and pull my thoughts into something coherent to share with you. When I started thinking about my time in the Czech Republic, I was tempted to start big with my first instalment on Prague, but re-thought that approach and decided […]
