Winter in a Van

As an Australian, I was very concerned about going north through Norway and Sweden. How cold would it get? How would I drive in snow? What survival tips did I need? Would my car start? And so on. We spent two weeks up north, and even now as we have been making our way south…

Hiking with Dogs: Drei Seen Wanderung (Austria)

I love taking our dogs bushwalking and hiking, but I always found it challenging (in Australia) to find places to take them! As I discover dog-friendly hikes, forests and trails, I’ll blog about them to help others find interesting, beautiful and exciting places to explore with their dogs too!  Where: 3-Seen-Wanderung, near Gössenberg, Styria, Austria.

What It’s Like Travelling With a Dog

One month (and a bit) in… Obviously I’m not a pro (yet) at travelling with a dog, but it has been a bit of a learning curve. I thought while everything is still fresh and shiny and new, I’d write down my experiences. Once I’m an “old hat” at travelling with Loki, things might seem…

How To: Take Your Dog Overseas (or Into Australia)

I’ve had some fantastic reactions when I tell people I’m taking Loki on this trip with me. I’ve had to say the same thing so often that I almost have it down as a script. People: So, I hear you’re going overseas. Me: Yeah, yeah, it’s a pretty big adventure. People: Sounds great! But what…

Travelling with Dogs in Australia (or, “is there anywhere you CAN actually go?”): Part 1 – Hiking

I know, I know, I’ve whinged about Australia’s lack of dog-friendly anything before on this blog. You’re probably thinking, “Come on, Em. It can’t be that bad.” And… You’d be wrong. If you are considering visiting Australia with your dog, here is (almost?) everything you need to know about rules, restrictions and regulations around travelling…

34 Days & A Bucket List (of sorts)

Guess what you guys?!   I did it! The tickets are booked! I’m outta here on the 6th of August!! Loki’s following close behind and will be flying out on the 10th, meeting me at Frankfurt airport on the 11th.   There’s still a bit left to organise, but really not much. In terms of…

Hiking with Dogs: George Bass Coastal Walk
