Ihis year’s summer holiday took us to the south and we decided only to bring Tiffany. We wanted to spend a period together with her alone, away from the rest.
Alonso stayed with Lene and Kim and their two Labradors. Maise and Snowy stayed with Bodil and Einar and Nanna (Snowy’s daughter) on Tåsinge. The first day we went down there, spent the night and drove down through Germany the very next morning.
We had rented the house in Popetto of a Danish family. It was very nice with a view to die for! The house was great for dogs, since there was fence all the way around.
We spent the week going to the mountains, visiting the vineyard Lunae and a local market. We also saw the enormous marble quarries in Carrara. And of course the charming city of Lucca.
One day we wanted to see the famous Cinque Terre. It was very charming, but the path binding the villages together was not suitable for a walk with a dog like Tiffany. Instead we drove to the near by harbor and village Pontevenere. Here we enjoyed the day at the Mediterranean.
After one week in Italy we drove to France,
where we rented a house in Apt
