Rocky’s tour de Chamonix, Mont Blanc II

Rocky’s tour de Chamonix, Mont Blanc II

Bonjour again my friends! My first few days in Chamonix, Mont Blanc in the┬áHaute-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…

World War II Normandy Landings with Rocky

World War II Normandy Landings with Rocky

Bonjour mes amis ! That means “hello my friends” in French, of course! After exploring the beautiful Alsace region in the north east of France, we drove to the very north tip of France to Normandy, the site of several World War II beach landings. Our first point of interest was indeed a popular one and it was what my human best friend wanted to see the most: Omaha Beach, sight of the historic World War II D-Day Landings. We…

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…

Dog coats to help you stay warm in the winter

Dog coats to help you stay warm in the winter

Where did the summer go? It’s gone, far away, and even me with my four legs can’t catch it. Looks like I’ll have to wait for next year. So now that means that winter is here and all the humans are out with their fancy coats and scarves, but that doesn’t mean that us four-legged best friends can’t also be wrapped up like nice burritos (mmm burritos). It’s on the cold days when I usually have to be dragged out…

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…

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 II: Newport and Penmaenmawr

Rocky’s journey to Wales II: Newport and Penmaenmawr

On our way back down from the Powys we stopped by for a late afternoon stroll and dinner at Newport, Wales. We picked this town because we had heard a lot about it and frankly because it was on our way back to England. Nevertheless we discovered that it was a gorgeous town, despite our visit landing on a gloomy and rainy afternoon. Of course since it was a port city, we drove by the docks and glanced at 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…
