If you need to know how to bring a pet on vacation, you have come to the right place. This isn't a list of things to bring when you take Fido, but rather information on how to bring Fido. What to think about, what rules to look, and what laws may exist depending on where you go. If you read through, you might even fine a code or two for discounts! Have you ever wondered what to do when you bring Fifi? Have you ever wondered how to travel to another nation? ... If you've ever tired to go on a vacation with a pet unprepared, you know how hit and miss everything can be. Whether you are driving, flying, cruising, or biking there are different rules and regulations based on where you begin, where you plan to go, and where you end. For basic travel tips, see here. For pet only traveling advice, keep reading. My own experience in traveling with a pet involves a small MadDogge... When we got MadDogge we were told Hilton Head was a great place for dogs. Everyone said Hilton Head allowed dogs everywhere. So off we went with only an AirBnB for planning. Turns out, they weren't exactly right. You couldn't bring a puppy anywhere on that island except for the beach after 6 pm. There were a few overpriced eateries that allowed pets, a dog park, and a lot of nothing. While it ended up being a fun trip, it was not the trip we had in mind. Since then, we have learned how to do our research.
At the beginning of August we visited Gatlinburg Tennessee for a three days trip where we ended up getting engaged, which you can read about here. We visited Dollywood, stayed in Gatlinburg, and hiked in the Great Smokey Mountains where we saw some elk! If you've ever wanted to visit this wonderful city then you have come to the right place to learn more. We have your recommendations, a few stories, and many photos. Before you read this, read about driving through and hiking the The Great Smokey Mountains as well as our engagement (it will make sense, I promise!)

In December of 2015 MadMan and I went to New Orleans for my 22nd birthday. He'd been before when he was young; however, I had never been. Typical for December, it rained most days so there was little chance for scenic photos. The rain; however, didn't stop us from really enjoying the drinks, history, and food that was around.
We're big on adventure, but we're also trying to save for financial independence at the same time. These ten travel tips that we have learned over time will not only insure that you are getting the most for your money, but that you are also saving money and having a great stress-free time. There are tips for flying, staying, traveling, adventuring, and even cruising. Let's Begin.
I live in Atlanta. I've also vacationed to Atlanta when I lived in Central Georgia. MadMan spent many weekends in Atlanta before he moved here for college. Needless to say we have a little knowledge on where to go, what to eat, and where to stay.
It turns out I am not half bad at snowboarding and neither is MadMan. Last year, we traveled to the mountains and went snowboarding. I almost broke my knee, lost my sunglasses, and had so much fun. MadMan almost broke his tail bone and also enjoined himself immensely. So maybe that was a lie... we both suck. Here's the story. First, let's set the scene...
In May of 2017 we visited Portland, Oregon for a week. It was rainy, it was cold, and it was fun. We did lots of walking, visited Forest Park, we walked around the Zoo and the Japanese Gardens, toured a sub, and ate lots of food. That's not to say that it was all fun and games, we also visited many apartments as we plan on moving there one day. Here's our feeling on the city, a guide, and photos.
