Pet Travel in the Age of Movie Stars and Bulky Luggage

Travel has certainly changed. On my first big trip to Europe when I was 13 we arrived in our best outfits and heels and our biggest piece of luggage. Today, it’s casual wear, sneakers and lightweight bags. But, one thing hasn’t changed, we love to take our furry companions with us.
