Food, Travel & Our Pets

Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

I have always been an animal lover, but since I moved out of my parents' home and into my own, I have only been an occasional pet sitter and have not had to worry about taking a pet in the car often, let alone on a plane or out to eat.


As I have been travelling the world, I have noticed more people bringing their pets out with them than ever before - and since this is obviously a trend that doesn't show any decline, I wanted to find out about the rules, the tips and tricks to successfully integrating our pets into this world of food, wine and travel.


This episode is almost a full hour in length...sorry, but I couldn't cut any of it out. Too informative! Enjoy, my Pet Lovers!
