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…

Good morning Dublin! Rocky the Bull Terrier has arrived

Good morning Dublin! Rocky the Bull Terrier has arrived

By the time we arrived in Dublin I had already eaten all the Lucky Charms cereal that I had brought with me. So I was hoping that it would give me enough luck to have a whimsical adventure in the city. I hadn’t found any leprechauns yet, but I kept my nose and eyes sharp just in case. My first impression was that Dublin was very much like Galway, a massive city but it can feel very small once you…

Rocky reaches the Majestic Cliffs of Moher in Ireland

Rocky reaches the Majestic Cliffs of Moher in Ireland

Ahoy mates! Rocky here. My adventures in Ireland began with a trip to the city of Galway and continues with an expedition to explore the famed Cliffs of Moher. I had heard through the grapevine that this was an absolute must-see. It took a lot of driving then a lot of walking to get to the cliffs, but boy oh boy was it worth it! The cliffs are vast so picking a point in which to start was a challenge…

The Bull Terrier who visited Ireland – Galway

The Bull Terrier who visited Ireland – Galway

When I first heard we were going to travel to Ireland, I thought I’d prepare myself by eating a big bowl of my second favourite cereal: Lucky Charms. I also prepared myself to meet some leprechauns and collect some gold coins. But most of all I was excited to drink some Guinness beer! So I chomped down my cereal then Danny and I rushed to pick up our rental car and then our esteemed traveling partner who goes by the…

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…

A Bull Terrier in Budapest

A Bull Terrier in Budapest

Budapest. Just saying that word evokes images of a beautiful city rich with culture and great people and extravagant buildings. And Hungary. Just saying that word makes me….Hungry. My adventure here followed my journey to Vienna and so we arrived in Budapest on a late afternoon. We had only one full day in Budapest and this time it was just me and Danny because our friend Veronica had returned to Prague. So there we were, two backpacker friends of different…

Rocky explores Czech Republic

Rocky explores Czech Republic

We had such a stellar visit to Prague that we had to spend more time in Czech Republic. So we chose the second biggest city in the country: Brno. We also paid a small visit to Kutná Hora to see the spooky Church of Bones. I didn’t chew on any bones from there, don’t worry.   As I said before, Prague is so elegant and charming, but she’s also a vast city and one which my paws need a lot of…

A dog in Prague

A dog in Prague

It was a chilly spring when we chose to visit the wonderful city of Prague. There I fell in love with the buildings, the people and most of all the food. Our journey to Prague took us from England through Germany where we stopped briefly in Dresden to wait for our connecting train to Czech Republic. I loved the old style architecture at the Dresden train station and I hoped that the Germans would greet me with ready-made Bratwurst. Urfortunately…

Rocky visits Amsterdam

Rocky visits Amsterdam

There are few places that I could think of that gets me as excited as a trip to Amsterdam.  I’ve now been there more than few times and I love each visit more than the last. Being that we were based in England and we couldn’t take a flight to Amsterdam because of those pesky ‘dogs and airplane travel’ rules, we boarded the Stena Line Ferry from Harwich, UK to Hoek of Holland. It was a long journey at about…

Rocky meets Meat Liquor

Rocky meets Meat Liquor

After traveling around Europe and the US for the past couple of years, I’ve decided to settle down and rest my bones – at least for a bit – and so I chose Brighton, a quirky little city by the sea where my kind is welcome in virtually every pub in every corner. It’s a city where a bull terrier like me could sit on a chair with a pint of beer and no one would look twice, because let’s…
