What happens when a pug goes on holiday?

Let’s face it, when we choose to travel with our pets sometimes it becomes more about finding a place willing to accept our critters without charging an arm and a leg for the luxury of bringing that special member of the family. But once we’ve procured the pet-friendly accommodations, just what happens when the furry family member goes on holiday?  We found out our pug, though away from home, still had several important jobs.

A visit to the Hinds Head in Bray; neighbour to the Fat Duck in iconic village

A guest post by Michael Hepworth of Perfect Travel Today The HINDS HEAD in the picturesque village of Bray in Berkshire, England, is one of three owned by superstar chef Heston Blumenthal (HB) of FAT DUCK fame, and the Michelin 1 Star pub is located right next to the Fat Duck sharing a parking lot.

Traveling is fun and taking a break to get away from it all is vital to our happiness and health. However, while enjoying vacation, it’s easy to relax a little too much. Criminals never take a holiday and count on unsuspecting travelers letting down their guard so they may reap rewards while wreaking havoc. No, you don’t have to become paranoid, constantly looking over your shoulder – you’ll never unwind that way – but it’s important to strike a balance between conveniences and protecting personal data. I spoke with Shaun Murphy, a security expert with PrivateGiant.com, and he shared some […]

Bardot French Brasserie at The Aria in Las Vegas -Michael Mina’s take on classic French cuisine

A guest post by Michael Hepworth of Perfect Travel Today BARDOT FRENCH BRASSERIE at the swanky Aria Hotel in Las Vegas is the latest venture from San Francisco celebrity chef Michael Mina in the same spot as his now defunct American Fish. That restaurant failed due to logistical issues of flying in fish from all over the country and the high prices that were charged because of those problems.
