Bike rides and horses in the New Forest: Hampshire

Bike rides and horses in the New Forest: Hampshire

The New Forest is huge! So huge that it takes up a big chunk of the southern region of England. It would take even me, one of the fastest dogs in the world, a long time to run through it all. Even with a bicycle it would still take forever to see it all! Me and my human’s first visit ever to the New Forest took us through the small village of Brockenhurst with a bicycle buggy and now this time…

Rocky takes a trip to the enchanted village of Kaysersberg, France

Rocky takes a trip to the enchanted village of Kaysersberg, France

Imagine the fairy-tale beauty of Strasbourg concentrated into a small village with just a few roads, a gorgeous castle and some surrounding vineyards. Such a magical place exists and it’s called Kaysersberg! We stumbled upon the medieval village on our search for castles in the Alsace region and I’m sure glad we found it! Located just an hour south of Strasbourg by car, Kaysersberg is worth a visit if you’re ever in the region. As a bonus, it’s a super…

Rocky explores a slice of Calais, France

Bonjour Mes Amis (that means my friends in French), I’m on a road trip all the way to the Alsace Region of France and beyond. After returning from the US and touching down in the UK by plane, I needed to have a bit of a rest. After my rest, my itch to travel came back and I was ready for another adventure. Not too long ago my paws visited the magnificent Alsace region in France. Before Danny and I…

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 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…

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 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…

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…
