Wine and cheese… what more could you ask for?! If you know me at all by now, you know that I absolutely LOVE wine tasting across the world. The tradition of winemaking and learning from the people who make it is a REALLY cool way to discover a new place! So, when I discovered last year that Mexico had an “other” wine country (second to Baja California, Mexico’s biggest wine-producing region) — I knew I would be visiting the area — and its multiple wineries and vineyards — more than once. Here are some of my favorite stops.
San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico, feels like a place I could just sink into. It feels livable; a great place to travel on a budget. I saw and met a ton of travelers, mostly European.

My 5-year-old, 26-pound miniature Australian shepherd Penny es mi vida y mi mejor amiga (my life and my best friend!). I have had her since she was a mere 7 weeks old, and ever since, I’ve never been away from her for longer than a month! In her five years on this earth, together, we’ve [...]
When I made the decision in 2020 to embark on a nomadic lifestyle, there was no question that I would bring my miniature Australian shepherd Penny with me… even knowing that traveling with a dog will make my full-time vagabond life much more complicated. Here are some of the realities I’ve encountered.
Pet ownership has exploded over the past decade. More than half of U.S. households own a pet, with younger demos leading the pack. With work-from-anywhere becoming the new work-from-home, a new crop of pet owners are wondering how to best travel with their four-legged companions. Here are my tried-and-true tactics.
Boise, Idaho was my first temporary home after embracing the nomad life. Check out my favorite dining, drinking, and outdoor activity spots in and around Boise (dog-friendly, of course) — with plenty of photos!
Charleston is the one of the most dog-accepting and dog-friendly cities, and that's saying a lot, coming from this 3-year-old miniature Australian shepherd who's visited 19 states.. so far.
Hi, I’m Penny. I’m a year-and-a-half-old miniature Australian shepherd, and I love to travel. I’ve been to 13 states, 2 countries, and splashed around in both oceans!
