Happy Boxing Day! Only a couple of links to share with you this week, but they’re both intriguing.
Norfolk news station EDP24 posted a story about the new dog-friendly rooms at Wells-next-the-Sea’s Globe Inn, and inaugural guests Angela Lonsdale (“Coronation Street”) and her black Lab, named Bo. That part of England is not for the faint of heart in winter, but it’s certainly quiet and restful — and in the summer it’s lovely. The Globe gets good reviews on TripAdvisor and elsewhere. I’m looking forward to checking it out, and I’m pleased to hear that the hotel was persuaded to add dog-friendly rooms after receiving so many requests for them.
Also from the U.K. comes an article from the Daily Mail about a woman who sold her home to fund a six-month around-the-world odyssey with her adorable mutt Oscar. Her goal was to highlight the plight of stray dogs around the world. The pictures alone, from places like Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal and Giza, are well worth the click.
