Back in January I chose my ‘word’ for 2019. I picked “adventure” because I knew I wanted to spend time traveling, exploring and trying new thing with Wynston. And boy, 2019 has been a year of adventures so far! It’s been an incredible last six months, really. I thought it would be fun to outline our travels thus far with some statistics. Here goes!
I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1988. I am a Hoosier through and through, but I’ve lived in Arizona for 20 years now. Indiana is “home” but as of mid 2019 it had been 10 years since I had visited. Needless to say, I was due for a trip back, so I decided June was the perfect time. Not only was I dying to go back home but I was also super stoked to take Wynston to see where I grew up. Our trip was incredible, and I already can’t wait to go back.
Wynston and I travel a lot, and it’s rare that we take a completely flawless trip. Granted, I’ve learned how to adapt to any sort of change in our travel plans, so I’ve become a pro at improvising. However, it can be stressful when something doesn’t go as planned. Whether your flight gets cancelled, it’s raining at a destination where you planned to partake in outdoor activities, or your dog has a medical emergency, I have tips (all from experience) on how to handle the situation.
I consider myself to be a seasoned traveler, as I’ve been enjoying the road and skies since before I can remember. Now that I’m older I have my own way of doing things, and I’ve created successful routines for traveling via car and airplane with my dog. I’m an expert at traveling alone with Wynston, and in the next couple of years I’d like to be living on the road full time. In the meantime, let’s discuss road tripping alone with your pup. Here are helpful tips for surviving a solo road trip with your dog.
It had been six years since I’d been to Las Vegas when I stepped foot into Mandalay Bay for the 2018 SuperZoo event. Vegas isn’t really my style, as I’m not into the night life or drinking. However, I was over-the-top excited to attend SuperZoo, as I’ve always wanted to go. While you’ll see a complete recap of SuperZoo, I decided to create a separate blog post about our stay at the dog-friendly Mandalay Bay. There is a lot to share and talk about!
