Going on vacation means a lot of planning these days.
We have to ask ourselves the most important questions like “where are we going to go this year?”
Do you want to go somewhere for good food? Somewhere on the beach? Is it suitable for children? If I want a trip to the spa, does he take care of it?
Is there a question we forget to ask ourselves when looking for a hotel to take advantage of such an important break this year?
I think this question is about dogs!
Can I take my dog to a hotel or holiday this year so that we can all get away from it all?
