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 […]

Last week, I had the pleasure of introducing you to the joys of visiting Split with a small dog. In Part 1, we focused on two sections: the amazing promenade and, of course, the vast Roman palace built for Emperor Diocletian. Today I will take you outside the palace walls. Although the city of Split grew unchecked and in a haphazard way after WWII, the area along the […]

Right from the start, when we were planning our trip to Croatia, I knew I wanted to stop in Korčula. It may seem cheesy or cliché but it was all because of the gorgeous photo on the cover of the Eyewitness Travel Guide. We were hooked. And when we dug a little deeper and found out it was the birth place of one of the most famous world travellers—Marco Polo—well, […]

To access these falls is a […]

Ah Paris …A city filled to the brim with ideas, architecture, art and a certain flair for everything from food, to fashion to simply knowing how to live life well.  It is a city that inspires and attracts all sorts of people in the world, from Hemingway to the Impressionists and I believe it might well be the city that has the most songs written about it.  For […]

After spending a few days in Key Largos with nothing to see on land, the bipeds were itching to have a town to visit and something historical to enjoy.  So we decided to get a move on and start driving/travelling to Key West with a small dog … me!  So, we all woke up early one morning and got in the car and drove the spectacular route between Key […]

Traveling to Naples Florida USA with a small dog is going to one of those places that, as a Canadian Dog – I associate with the term Snow Bird.  So, at the tender age of 7 months, it seemed that perhaps this was a slightly premature destination choice for my bipeds and me.   But, when Mom’s cousin offered us her place near the Venetian Village for two weeks […]
