Are you planning to go on a trip with your furry friend? Road trips are a lot of fun and one of the best ways to visit off-beat places or even regular ones at your leisure. Taking your dog along with you on the trip can double the fun. It also means that you won’t have to leave your best friend at a kennel when both of you will miss each other. Most dogs love to travel in a car. Everyone knows their love for sticking their head out of their window with their tongue rolling out.

Big Heads, Little Heads

The train was slowing, and as I looked out the window, I couldn’t see why. There were no galloping giraffes, no wildebeest or gazelle, nothing. A few thin women with pitiful offerings of a tomato or a couple of potatoes on a hub cap or woven plate, a few thin and raggedly dressed children running along the side of the train. The train pulled into what seemed to us like the middle of the African Continent of NOTHING. A chain-like fence kept Africans away from the train and kept the tourists (like us) from leaving the train.

New Hampshire has a lot that makes it stand out. For starters, it has the shortest coastline of any coastal U.S. state. It’s also home to the Northeast’s highest peak. With so much variety in one small area, it makes for a great place to road trip through. Stopping at natural attractions, popular tourist spots, and some gems off the beaten bath will create memories that will last a lifetime.

I noticed a bee in the house we were renting in Jaco, Costa Rica. I put it outdoors and gave it no more thought. Later that day, I saw another bee flying around the living room. Those were the first two bees I had ever seen inside the house. True, there wasn’t any glass in the windows, but generally bees don’t find the insides of houses have anything to offer them.

“Do you know what street we’re on?” I asked Ted.
“Haven’t the slightest idea. I can’t see any signs either,” he replied.
We were driving through San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, on a hunt for a laboratory to x-ray me for a dental problem. The dentist in Jaco had written down the address: 500 meters south from the cathedral.

The Blackhawk Museum is one of the top attractions in Danville, CA. The museum’s lofty mission to “stimulate interest and understanding of art, culture, and history,” isn’t so outlandish once you learn it’s actually composed of several museums.

The signs of spring are emerging with flowers blooming, rows of colorful leafy veggies blossoming, and a new member of Washington Acres arriving…a Vietnamese potbellied piglet found in a storage unit who needs to be fostered until its owner is located. Bibi, Megan’s grandmother, is completely taken.
