Our Gibraltar trip

Trip report written by Vava & Fiko.

So we have done it! By us I mean Fiko, Vava and our Mum.

Our trip across Europe — 10 thousand kilometers long — with Gibraltar as the final destination is over!

Our wish to have a break was the original idea — which evolved into the long voyage. You know, our Mum is very active and would never waste her time just lying on a beach — so we decided to combine business and leisure. As a result, the trip met the expectations of us all — there was the sea, the sun, lots of excursions and fine cuisine of various countries. And we dropped by a dog show. The decision was made — we are going!

Let me omit the packing piece, it wasnt too interesting. Let me rather dwell on the trip itself.

We left Moscow on the 12 of September. Our first point was Berlin & suburbs. While we relaxed in the hotel, our Mum saw Potsdam. It really is a lovely place to see, with all its cathedral architecture and German cafes.

The next stop was Geneva. Oh, lovely Switzerland, you are so wonderful! The Lake Geneva with snow-white swans, fountains and a quiet walk along the twisted lanes.. The cozy cafes with fondue... Geneva was full of romance.

And now we move on to Costa Brava of Spain. And this is the sea, here we are! Finally we can soak our paws in the salty water! It is so endless, the sea the waves might seem scary at first. But then we mustered all our will in our paws and started off swimming That was something! I tell you! Well, after that a lake or river in Moscow suburbs is just a tiny brook.

During our stay in Costa Brava our Mum visited Barcelona. She told us about this marvelous city. But she didn t have much time and now she is thinking of visiting it again. Well, for us it will be fun too — well have some time at the beach.

We are starting off again and our next destination is Costa del Sol. The sea again, yachts, siesta and Spanish delicacies.. We even tried the well-known Spanish Hamon. Well, it is specific, I have to say, but we truly enjoyed it.

The dog show eve day found us wet and salty after a routine swim. Mum cleaned and styled us and we went to conquer Gibraltar. It was an early start on the first day — at 8 am. It was still very dark and we were starring in the light of the lanterns. The next contest day was full of the warm sun — it started at 10 am.

We didnt let our Mum down. We did very well!

The banquet that followed we truly deserved!

And now lets go back home! During the 10 day trip we missed our home so much!

We had two stops on our way back home, at one of which we all congratulated our Mum on her Birthday! And she took us to a small German restaurant. We had a really good time!

On the 14th day of our travel we returned safely back home! Hurray, here is our dad meeting us! Lets hurry to see our brothers and sisters and share our impressions! Let them envy us a little — the real Sea Dogs. Well, to put it precisely — the Real Sea Wolves!!

Bye-bye, see you soon,
Vava & Fiko!
