It’s MARKET DAY IN GREAT YARMOUTH for Rocky!

It’s MARKET DAY IN GREAT YARMOUTH for Rocky!

Hi my friends! It’s your favorite traveling bull terrier! Not too long ago I showed you what it was like to visit Great Yarmouth! We wound up here on the way to Scotland and stopped at a bed and breakfast that was dog friendly and cheap (called The Trevross Guest House). Our total stay was about ten days, but during our first few days the seaside town seemed quite sleepy as in there was hardly any other souls around! Now…

Rocky’s tour de Chamonix, Mont Blanc II

Bonjour again my friends! My first few days in Chamonix, Mont Blanc in the Haute-Savoie region of France were quite the awesome adventure because I went cycling throughout the town while surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the entire planet. My next few days in Chamonix were equally as awesome because I got to meet an Instagram legend bull terrier named Ringo. I also did some more exploring around the town and tried to make my way up…

Rocky enters the fairytale land of Strasbourg

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. The city could be described as a perfect mix of Germany and France and you really do get two cultures for the price…

Rocky the Florida Gator

Rocky the Florida Gator

Happy 2018! It’s been a year since I have visited the good ol’ United States. My American adventure last year took me to the sunshine state of Florida. I packed my bags from Europe and set off to Miami first before going up to visit Central Florida, which is where I would stay for a month. My journey began deep into the heart of Florida in a town called Gainesville. It’s a small town, bursting with pride. Gator pride. You…

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…

Rocky’s journey to Wales: Powys

Rocky’s journey to Wales: Powys

It took one year after living in the UK to visit Wales but the wait was well worth it. We were in search of spectacular castles and coastlines. After much planning Danny and I took a small road trip over to the Brecon Beacons area and found ourselves in the county of Powys, more specifically the town of Crickhowell and the village of Tretower. I was delighted when we first crossed the country line from England into Wales and we…

Rocky visits Vienna

Rocky visits Vienna

Our hotel in Vienna was a hop and a skip away from the Wurstelprater amusement park, otherwise known as the Prater. We were in the second district of the city and I had a hunger to explore all of it in the short time we had. I also had a hunger for some Wiener schnitzel. We hopped on Vienna’s metro system which was easy to navigate even without us knowing the language. As a bonus, it was pretty cheap! I told…
