Staying With a Dog at the Ramada Ottawa on the Rideau in Canada

The Ramada Ottawa on the Rideau is the best and most affordable pet friendly hotel in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. No word of a lie. Don’t believe me? Keep reading! I have seen hotels offer free stays or some other incentive in exchange for a review by a social-media-blogger-sweetheart. It’s marketing and I get it. But I don’t trust sponsored reviews as much as I trust those that are […]

Glamping. It’s a word that’s bandied about a lot lately in the world of travel bloggers. But can there really be any “glamour” in “camping”? Well, yes, there can be. It’s having some of the amenities and small luxuries one would normally think of enjoying when staying at a hotel or even a spa, while still getting that outdoor escapism and adventure associated with traditional camping. It’s camping […]

The great thing about looking for a little place to rent in Dubrovnik—one that is pet-friendly—is that there are options. Loads of options. A quick search in FlipKey or on TripAdvisor results in hundreds of choices. And I love that. I also love how affordable the options are. With affordability tossed into the mix, the bipeds and I figured we could afford to be a little pickier than usual. With […]

I have wanted to try out a Sofitel Hotel for some time now. I almost did when we went to Paris, but a change of plans landed us in a charming little “real Parisian hotel” instead. No regrets there at all.  And because we tend to stay in apartments or couch surf with friends (FANS!) we actually don’t spend much time in hotels. That makes reviewing them a […]

We regret not having more time at this hotel; or Athens for that matter. Due to major delays caused by storms we lost a day and night in Athens; our time thus limited to a single quick evening on the town and one night at the Acropolis Hill Hotel. We were already impressed with the hotel before we even arrived. We had come across it on Trip Advisor when doing a search for […]

It has been a long time since we have truly fallen in love with a hotel. That’s why I am jumping the gun a little here and going straight to this hotel review. There are other airlines, airports and hotels to review not to mention sooooo many stories to share, but Dear Reader, I can’t honestly wait to tell you about this hotel. We stayed at Oia’s Sunset […]

Canada, the USA and much of Europe is now dotted with lodgings welcoming dogs. In fact, as time passes it is becoming easier all the time! You can find everything from pretty vacation rental apartments, inexpensive motels, and lovely bed-and-breakfast inns not to mention expensive boutique hotels, classic five star luxury or even glamping option! Although the price range and style vary significantly, the basic dog etiquette rules are the same […]

My bipeds like to dive. So it was only normal that, after 10 days in Naples Florida they’d want to switch things up and go east and hit so prime scuba locations.  They settled on Key Largo because divers agree that it’s pretty darn good diving.  By the long evening conversations; the play by play descriptions I got to hear, they were not disappointed in that regard! Now […]
