Holiday season at the park seems to inevitably bring up the question: ‘And what do you do with your dog?’ Since we have had Micro, we have not left him once. Holidays have not been the same – they are better than before, but at the same time slightly more complicated.
More generally speaking, for holidays you’ve got to ask yourself two main questions to begin with: are you going to take your dog? or not?
And where did July go?? Well, at least half of July was spent here – or somewhere close to this spot.
… which you might already know if you follow us on Instagram. Unlike the years before we found (working) WIFI spots this time to post pictures. And, like the years before, we have been in Catalunya on the Costa Brava, and we drove down, thanks to the horrific price tag attached to flights with your dog from and to the UK. So, ze car (also known as Bruni the knight bus) it is. We have written en detail how you can leave the country with your dog in tow. We might try the night train (with ze car) next year, but I only thought about this option when we came back (of course!) and I need to do the maths to see if it’s worth doing that. Currently it looks like a neat option. We will keep you posted on that.
Hello, we’re two expat friends (aka Tournesol and Tigerduck) and a dog (Micro-the-Dog, aka “the boss”). After living in London for 18 and 16 years respectively (or 5 years in the case of Micro), we’ve just made a leap of faith back across the channel and are building a new life in Munich. Thank you for reading our musings about the world, life, living with CFIDS/ME, music, crafts, dogs and other observations.
