Traveling Travels with Boomer Trip Planning

I used Rover for the first time. Here’s what I thought.

The other day I found myself snooping around on the internet and stumbled upon someone’s experience with Rover, the dog boarding app. 

For those of you who do not know what Rover is, instead of taking your dog to a traditional boarding facility you take them to a person’s home and have them care for your pet in their home.

Sometimes I get flack for traveling with my dogs. Although I try my best to find activities to include them in my travels it does not always pan out. And when it doesn’t I have to rely on a little local help at the destinations we visit. And when I say local help, I mean local dog care facilities.

To cruise or not to cruise. Why I think you should weigh the options

The floating city we called home for a week!

When I went on my first curse I was 28 years old. I was skeptical that my friend Laura and I would be the only young people on the entire ship. Well it turns out I was wrong. And here’s why. Cruises are an inexpensive way to travel which is handy because when you’re young (unless you are Zuckerburg) you don’t have tons of money to spend on travel.

Paws for Beer 2 Year Blogiversary

Paws for Beer 2 Year Blogiversary

Two years ago I started Paws For Beer from my love of travel, beer and my dog Boomer.

It’s funny how things can change in two years. Two years ago I was making a good income, had 280 hours of vacation, 7 paid holidays and one dog. Last year the company I worked for went out of business. I was fortunate enough to find work but my income is almost cut in half, I have 20 hours of vacation for the year, no paid holidays and now two dogs.

When you travel with a dog you start to realize that there are a lot of places you can not take your dog. Most places are more than happy to let people bring their kids along, but a dog… meh not so much.

Which I ask the question why? My dog does not kick the back of your seat when flying on an airplane. Or start screaming at the top of his lungs because he did not get that ice cream cone he thinks he needs. ¬†Or plop himself down in the middle of a busy walkway because I have kept him up past his bedtime and he is too tired. No, Boomer would never…. well I’m not sure about the last one, as I have yet to see Boomer out of energy… ever.
