Last night, I had a strange dream. My mother who died in 2002, gave me a whole set of tiny green books. Well, actually they were bright greenish turquoise. I looked at the first one and the title was ‘Youth Hostels’ . Immediately I wondered if any modern youth hostels take dogs.
So I looked up dog friendly youth hostels on the Internet.
And they DO! Who knew?
My now-dead-mother was an avid youth hosteler in her young days. In fact her old leather walking shoes still lie at the bottom of Conistan Water near here, where she threw them in 1938.
The Furlong Family used youth hostels too when we used to visit the UK from Africa. We saw them change from basic to luxurious, with en suite and private rooms to restaurants on the premises. Of course the price climbed too….
So now they are also dog friendly. How nice!
We might take advantage of that now we are in our second youth….
