Just a little note to say we made it into February already, and it looks like it could be spring soon… Whenever I write something this it usually starts to snow the next day (I hope it won’t this time!). So far, we had two mornings with sunshine (though the day I took the picture above wasn’t one of them) and a little less mud in the park during our daily walks. Just a tiny bit less, I still look as though I did a face plant in the mud when we come home, because Micro loves to jump up into my arms – preferably right after he ran through a mud puddle.
We are in the middle of the Apartment Therapy January Cure and I am finding it really hard this time (5th or 6th time I’ve done it now, I think). Not having had a real break for Christmas, on top of which both of us got sick, and the dog couldn’t handle the emotional roller-coasters and got sick too, and then having jumped straight back into work without rest on the weekends… well, let’s just say it has taken a lot of determination to get through the tasks this year. Yes, I know, it will all be worth it later, right?
This is how we hope our pets travel. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. A few weeks ago Micro (together with us) met super (dog) model Elle and her human, who had just come back from a trip to Paris. And, of course, we got chatting about how to travel with dogs – one has to exchange tips and tricks, right?
So, you have decided that you will take your dog with you from the UK on your next holiday, because you can. And you want to explore the rest of Europe (as long as you can still freely travel and take your dog). Your first challenge – after you have figured out where you want to go, stay, visit and which locations/sights/cafes are dog friendly – is to leave the island, by whatever mode of transportation available: with or without car, by ferry, train or plane… whatever you choose, leaving the island without a car but with your four-legged friend will require a little more planning.
Hello, we’re two expat friends (aka Tournesol and Tigerduck) and a dog (Micro-the-Dog, aka “the boss”) living in London. Thank you for reading our musings about the world, life, living with CFIDS/ME, music, crafts, dogs and other observations.
