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

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.

As we drove through the city I stuck my head out the window and just took it all in, including unfortunately some bugs.  I took in all the sights, the sounds, the smells and the taste of the air. It was also brutally hot and I wanted to find a good park with some shade to run around in…

Get him to the Greek Island

Get him to the Greek Island

There was roughly 2,000 miles between us and the adventure and vacation of a lifetime. There was 3 of us: me, my trusted advisor Danny Pennyworth (may not be real last name), and a brand new but good ol’ addition to our team: a 1996 BMW 318 purchased secondhand for £500. But we instilled our trust into our new friend to transport us through the rough roads of Eastern and Southern Europe with the ultimate destination: The Greek Island of Zakynthos. Why…
