Chloe with us this time. Usually she stays at my parents’ house when we are
gone for a few days but we always miss her so much so this time she was with
us. And I have to admit that there can´t be so many more things for travelling
with a baby than with a dog. She almost had a bigger bag than me.
us about dog friendly places upfront (hotels and restaurants) cause you can´t
take your dog everywhere with you but since she can´t stay alone in the hotel
room she had to be with us the whole time.
a list of all the things we took with us including Chloe
with a soft blanket inside (she loves to ride by car – she falls asleep the
minute after we start the engine)
for on-the-go (this is pretty cool)
the car ride (we usually drink water with gas so I made sure to have a bottle
for Chloe without)
went to lakes to get her refreshed
– I took a short one and a longer one with us (didn´t want to take her of the
leash as she doesn´t know the surroundings)
these small bowls for her. They are packed for one meal each so I can throw
them away and don´t have a big opened can in the hotel refrigerator

So for our first three days we stayed in Bressanone (Brixen). This is a really small city (on some times there was no one on the streets) but also one of the biggest of south-tyrol so you can see this is a small part between Austria and Italy but it belongs to Italy.
After arriving at our hotel (the Löwenhof Hotel) and checking-in in the afternoon we first had coffee and a panini. Afterwards we went to the room and took a nap before heading to the pool.
For dinner we went down in the city. We ate at a restaurant called “Torre Biance” which means white tower – one of the sights in Bressanone.
On our second day we decided to go a little outside the city by driving to a mountain called Plose. We took the cable railway to get to the top. Chloe wasn´t amused by the way. After we arrived it was pretty foggy but it cleared up really soon. We went on the trail to take a long walk with Chloe but turned back very soon as she was followed by a big free running cow. So we went to the mountain restaurant, had some coffee and enjoyed the view before taking the cable railway to get back to the car.
After exploring some nature we went to the city centre to get some ice cream and to take a look at the shops. They didn´t have many since the city is little but I found a really cool italian store called Tezenis. The sell underwear and bathing suits and I found this super cute pineapple swimsuit and a ruffle bikini.
We went back to our hotel to lay at the pool and had some delicious mexican food at “Bufalo Cantina´s” for dinner.
The third day was filled with adventure. We drove to Sterzing, a small place nearby and went up the “Gilfenklamm” a ravine which has so many clear waterfalls and beautiful nature. Chloe was really into it. She loved hopping her way up to the top. Arriving at the top we first had lunch at a restaurant. We ordered some typical food for the area and didn´t get disappointed. In my opinion we didn´t eat better the whole week than in this place. We had “Schlutzkrapfen” – a spinach filled kind of pasta which butter and parmesan cheese and “Nocketrio” – three different dumplings filled with mushrooms, spinach, cheese and a cole slaw with bacon topped with butter and cheese. So many calories but so delicious. On our way down and back to the car it started raining cats and dogs and we where soaking wet after a short time so the only thing we did for this day was taking a long and hot shower and eat dinner at the hotel´s restaurant.
So in fact we did a lot during our first three days.
What do you think ?
Thanks for stopping by.
Take care. See you.
Our dogs !!!
So of course we are spoiling her with lots of treats and toys. So here is a closer look to our latest purchase of course together with Chloe.
