Rocky’s 9 favorite spots in the Jurassic Coast and Dorset!

Howdy my friends! It’s your favorite traveling dog here, Rocky the Traveller. I always wanted to visit the Jurassic Coast ever since I first heard the name.     The very words of ‘Jurassic Coast’ brought some cool but scary images into my little egghead. Images of dinosaur fossils scattered throughout the beaches of southern England. I even pictured a few of them neatly shaped like a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Perhaps I even imagined a few raptors hanging around the beaches….

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…

Rocky enters the fairytale land of Strasbourg

Hang on to your baguettes and hold your croissants because Rocky the Bull Terrier is exploring the fairytale city of Strasbourg, France. After a cross-country road trip through France, we arrived at our destination deep into the heart of Strasbourg. It was here where I experienced an everlasting infatuation with Strasbourg’s half-timbered houses and its old-world architecture.

Rocky’s road trip to the Wicklow Mountains, Ireland

Rocky’s road trip to the Wicklow Mountains, Ireland

On the last leg of our Irish adventure we spent a day at the majestic Wicklow Mountains just south of Dublin. I craved wilderness and wanted nothing but the fresh air, the beautiful scenery and the sounds of nature. I wanted to be like a wolf in nature.   Our trip through the Wicklow Mountain National Park took us through narrow roadways and past rolling hills and my goodness, what a view! I stuck my head out of the car…
