A quick holiday break to one of our favourite to places to visit, Tofino, British Columbia. You can never go wrong with the weather here – if it’s sunny then it’s just plain beautiful. But when it’s stormy then nature puts on an amazing show with huge crashing waves and painted skies.
Throughout Rome you will come face to face with numerous depictions of the ‘She-Wolf’ an important part of this city’s vast history. Through paintings, frescoes, and statues her myth ignites the tale of how she discovered and cared for the twin brothers of Romulus & Remus, who then went on to found Rome. A city with this many ties to the wolf couldn’t be more open and friendly to bringing a dog along with you while you discover the treasures of Rome.
There are so many little towns and communities dotted around the Italian countryside, you are spoiled each time you venture out for the day. One amazing little place we stumbled across was Chiusdino, just under an hour from Siena and ninety minutes from Florence.
A new ‘Baily & Bella’ dog sweater to show off with some pics from a quick road trip to the BC interior and a visit to Salmon Arm. This area is gorgeous in the summer but we were really digging the winter moodiness of the Shuswap Lake and living it up without putting on any mosquito spray 🙂
There were so many wonderful things to see on our trip around Italy and so many dog friendly ways to get to all the sites we wanted to see, or at least what we could fit in to three weeks. Although most of our travel was by car, local transit or on foot, we did break from our regular programming and rented a couple of Vespas to visit Chiusdino in the Siena region of Tuscany. Would this stop us from from bringing our dog along to enjoy the afternoon? A big ‘heck no’! Check out our fun little video of Tikka riding a Vespa in Tuscany:
