Welcome to World Wide Walkies!

Welcome to my blog about our travels BC (Before Canines) and AD (After Dogs) – with a bit of practical advice thrown in.

Although I wouldn’t have said that we go where no van has gone before (until we went to Romania, when we definitely did!) we do like to get off the beaten track, into nature and stay well away from the crowds.

I hope that you enjoy reading our stories as much as I enjoy writing them and if you are a blogger – make sure that you tell my readers and I about YOUR blog! Pop a link in my Comments section.

And if you are one of the wonderful people who follow my blog, THANK YOU! Your support and encouragement means everything.
