The Animalist

One of the hardest parts of travelling is leaving behind loved ones.  And that’s especially hard when some of your loved ones are pets.  Even though you can skype with them like you do your family and friends, it’s the interaction that you’re really missing and can’t mimic over the computer.

Most people know that we’re big softies when it comes to animals.  On our travels we’ve been lucky enough to meet heaps of fantastic people and get to know the special animals in their lives.

In case you haven’t guessed, this post is purely about all of the animals we’ve met on our travels.  Mostly they’ve been much loved pets, but there are also a few others who piqued our interest while out and about.

Some of these have already been mentioned in previous posts, so take a look at the linked posts to see more pictures of them.
