Flashback Friday: Enchanting Provence

That time when we went on vacation to the south of France and it poured every single day.  And it only made our vacation that much more enchanting.

Adventures in Dogcations

This year, we were able to get away for a few days for our anniversary. I've been wanting to go up North to a dog friendly environment and hike some headlands and river trails. Last year I was too sick to even sit at my computer and this year, though I'm still on plenty of drugs […]

In the Fur

We're So Over that Rainbow

"Something tells me we're not in Switzerland anymore, Princess." "Really? What clued you in Sherlock?" WARNING: Educational post to follow. Read at your own risk. Now that we're so over that rainbow and back to reality,  I want to share what we've learned from our experiences in preparing for a long overseas flight with dogs.

The Zen of Controlled Chaos

It wasn't at all as I expected, Monet's House and Garden in Giverny. I envisioned a quiet estate, square or round in shape, with a long driveway that would lead to the front. I imagined it unconnected from the noisy, harried world. Instead, it was located in a busy village, where motorists pass right through the middle of the two […]

No Ordinary Time

This time, I was on a mission: shoot the clock at the Musée d'Orsay in ways its never been shot before. I didn't use a camera filter, but I did use a filter in the environment of the museum itself. And it was a complete mind-frack for the passing people. They looked at me as if I was crazy. Then, they […]

Miserable in Paris

I know what you're thinking. How can anyone be miserable in Paris? I assure you, it is possible.

Heights Make Me High: Zermatt Part Quatre

For me, there's nothing more exhilarating than being high. Don't get your panties in a bunch. I mean on a mountain range.

The Easy Stroll: Zermatt Part Trois

Continuing our Zermatt Hiking adventure, we headed out our hotel door and chose an 'easy' route for our first hike. I wonder what has Mr. Wild Dingo's attention?

Chalets are Us; Zermatt Part Deux

We arrived in Zermatt in 10-15 minutes from Tasch. I'm not a skier so I was unfamiliar with how things worked in a ski village, but a car-free ski village left even more questions. Like, how the hell were we going to get to our hotel, which sat above the town?  But right off the train, […]

"Whatchya got there pop? Two train tickets for peeps and two train tickets for pups to Zermatt, the best husky hiking in all of Switzerland? Oh please say it's true!"

Just a Hop, Skip and a Jump

Can you believe I have to take a 40-minute plane ride just to get a decent pizza? At least the view never gets old.

Probation

Dog lovers generally like or love Loki when they first meet him. They're fooled by his charm.  Even Bernard, our kennel keeper, had a mile-wide smile the first day he met him. "He's well-trained," he said. But that was before he chose to live with the whacka-cracker while we vacation. The last time we picked up the dogs after […]

It Never Gets Easy

I just spent 7 days with the man in Provence. And now he heads to China tonight. Business travel sucks.

Shen Zen

"It is better to do nothing, than to be busy doing nothing." I've had this knot in my stomach all week knowing I'd have to leave the cracker and the criminal at Bernard's doggie spa and camp this week. Bernard was fairly exhausted by Loki's crackery on the last stay. There are so many great […]

Eye Candy

When we travel, Mr. Wild Dingo focuses on history and ancient sites. I focus on landscape, culture, city vibe, pretty things and cuisine. So other than my gluttonous indulgence in Italian cuisine, I had only one other mission going to Venice: glass. And lots of it.

Cretan Ruin

We found this ancient artifact in Crete. In her day, she reined, Minoan Queen. Her paint sparkling pink in all it's newness. Loved by all, she lived a fast, hard life.  Ribbons of flair distract her admirers from broken parts and aging appearances. Yet she remains an icon of beauty.

Criminal Sighs

Our hotel was just a 1-minute walk from the Bridge of Sighs. The enclosed bridge with the two square windows connects the prisons to the interrogation room in Doge's Palace, which by the way was much more stunning than I anticipated. A local legend says that lovers will be granted everlasting love and bliss if […]

A Taste of Venice

Maybe I'm biased, but Italian food is hands down, the best cuisine in the world. Most often it's simply prepared but can be as equally elegant as French cuisine. In Italian cuisine,  flavors are raw, original and not subverted. While French cuisine is complex, flavor can sometimes be hidden or overtaken. Italian food on the other hand, never […]
