Shaggy on the go

The most famous Scottish Shepherd Dog in the world, Lassie, traveled hundreds of kilometers driven by longing for his beloved lord. Nowadays, collies travel the world together with their guardians, a camper. And it is certainly what the hairy family of the family who are passionate about traveling - the Wyrzykowski family - do.

Red Dragons on the trail

Undoubtedly, they can be called unusual tourists, because not every day you have the opportunity to meet a family who travels in a motorhome with three dogs - and this is how the Wyrzykowski family spent their holidays in Italy last year. From the very beginning, they knew that boring accommodation in hotels was not for them, just like visiting new places according to the principle of awarding points described in the guidebooks. After much thought, they decided to buy a 6-seater motorhome. From then on, they could travel spontaneously and not be afraid of limitations.

And it must be admitted that traveling is the passion of the whole family: Anna, Wojciech and Mikołaj, not to mention the exuberant herd of long-haired collies. Mr. and Mrs. Wyrzykowski deal with breeding Scottish Sheepdogs and they could not imagine that their pets would be missing during their family trips. Among other things, for this reason, they decided to buy a well-worn camper van. His age was not without significance - he comes from 1995, and in the same year Anna and Wojtek met in Italy. Equally sentimental was the goal of the first trip, which was, of course, Italy. Wandering among the vine fields and visiting Italian cities took them 15 days, during which they traveled 5384 km.

During the first few months of using the motorhome, the whole family visited Italy and the south of Poland. She met, among others attractions of Kielce, Chęciny and climatic monuments such as Krzyżtopór Castle. This year, the planned trip will be much longer (it is to last several months), and the Wyrzykowski family and their favorites are going to France.

Soon in bookstores!

In just a few days, the book "Kudłacze on the go. Italy for three collies " , describing the Wyrzykowski family's trip to Italy. There you will find a lot of photos and stories about the places you met, people you met, about traveling with a pack full of energy dogs, about love for life and enjoying the moment. As the characters themselves say, this book is about happiness. And it's about happiness available at your fingertips.

"Shaggy on the go ..." is an unusual guide to Italy, but tourists here are also unusual, so it could not be otherwise. It is a book full of warmth and the smell of grapes ripening in the sun. It includes descriptions of morning walks with dogs among sunflower fields and reports on making new friendships with the owners of vineyards offering hospitality, and often food (if you arrived late and all the nearby shops were already closed). In a word, a great family story of traveling enthusiasts, collies and tasting life.
