ROCKY visits the OLDEST CITY in AMERICA: ST. AUGUSTINE!!

The Oldest City in America! Which one is that you ask? Well it is none other than St. Augustine in Florida, just as it says in the title. I had the pleasure of taking my four paws throughout this beautiful gem of a city. But, I must say that I also brought the English weather with me. On the way to St. Augustine lies a tourist attraction that caught our eye: Florida Citrus Center and Souvenir World. There’s tons of…

ROCKY’S BIG BRITISH ROAD TRIP: An Afternoon exploring the Venice of the Cotswolds!

ROCKY’S BIG BRITISH ROAD TRIP: An Afternoon exploring the Venice of the Cotswolds!

I’ve heard so many great things about the Cotswolds, but mostly I’ve heard about how that’s where many of the rich people in England live! Naturally, my human and I were curious about what exactly is so special about this place. As we last left off on our British Road trip, we touched down on the Lake District and spent a day there on a steamboat ride. After that we recharged our batteries at a hotel at Stoke-on-Trent, but we…

ROCKY’S BIG BRITISH ROAD TRIP: BURGH CASTLE AND THE BROADS

Hi guys! it’s your favorite traveling bull terrier and I’m doing one last adventure in the Norfolk region of England before I make my way up to Leeds!

Rocky enjoys 4 seasons in Bournemouth, UK!

Ahoy mates! It’s your favourite bull terrier Rocky the Traveller. If you came here because you thought it would be all about the 4 seasons hotel in Bournemouth then I’m afraid to tell you that the closest one is in London. Sorry to disappoint. But if you came here to see the four different seasons of Bournemouth, well then I’m afraid you will also be disappointed because the UK is only known for having: Winter, Almost Winter, and Rain. But…

Rocky goes back in time at Corfe Castle in England

Rocky goes medieval in Corfe Castle If there’s one thing you should know about me is that I love castles! I’ve been to castles in Wales, Scotland, England, France, Spain and even America! But the first castle I ever saw still holds a special place in my mighty bull terrier heart! Corfe Castle in Dorset, England. It was back in 2015 when I first saw this ruined behemoth as well as its namesake village. Me and Danny went off with…

A Bull Terrier goes to Cambridge

A Bull Terrier goes to Cambridge

Have you ever come back to your home country and found yourself speaking another language after spending time in another country? Well, it happened to us after spending a week or so in the French Alps and in Paris. We came back to the UK speaking (and barking) in French. But it looks like once you enter the port city Dover, UK, it’s not unheard of to hear a bit of the French language. Another detail we noticed when we…

Rocky’s adventures throughout Normandy: Visiting Cherbourg, France

Rocky’s adventures throughout Normandy: Visiting Cherbourg, France

My adventures in the Normandy region continued on with a visit to the port city of Cherbourg, France. Only an hour away from our previous visit at Omaha Beach and just across the pond from Dorset, England (well, a 4-hour ferry ride anyway) the first thing I noticed when we visited the city was the abundance of boats! All kinds of boats called Cherbourg their home. We spent most of our first day strolling around the famous Port Chantereyne and admired…
