According to the Pet Products Association, one in four families now travel with their dog(s). Cats are also getting some road time. According to the Travel Industry Association of America, 15% of traveling pets are cats.

Most of the pet travel blogs I write are very subject-specific; a place, a product, a theme, etc. But not this one. Perhaps it's the heat. Or maybe it's my restless, wandering mind. In any case, below are a variety of tips to help you and your pet enjoy your next travel adventure.

Pick up any Bermudian Travel Guide or even an international magazine with an article on Bermuda, and you’re sure to see a “Top Ten” list of things to do. Everything from The Unfinished Church to the pink sandy beaches...but my favorite spot to take friends and family who visit is Tom Moore’s Jungle. Tom Moore’s Jungle, also called The Walsingham Nature Reserve, is 12 acres of preserved, privately owned land, which is free to the public to access.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy travel is to sample food around the world. Every country has its own menu, with traditional desserts, snacks, and entrees. Trying them all is an adventure!

In Thailand, you’re never sure what you’ll end up with. Here, food can be bought in markets and at restaurants. My family prefers to explore the markets, searching for the best deals and bargaining with the vendors. It’s dirty, loud, unorganized, and a treat for the average adventurer!

New York City. Most associate it with just being Manhattan, and the other four boroughs are placed in the peripheral vision. Manhattan is not the center of everything. There is way more to the city than just Times Square and Lady Liberty. Both are really cool sites that I highly recommend visiting if it’s your first time to New York. Otherwise, get out of Manhattan and explore. Don’t get me wrong. I love Manhattan.

Nai Yang is a relatively large town on the luscious island of Phuket. Characterized by sparkling beaches, bustling markets and breathtaking forests, its' beauty has been preserved by the minimal number of tourists who visit each year. Those who do come, do so mainly to experience the beaches.

In the high season (the season in which the most tourists come), the water is calm and clear, providing excellent diving and snorkeling conditions on some of the most beautiful beaches of the world.
