Woof! My name is Chili….Chili Dog! And I love to travel! Although I’m just a dog, I have my very own passport. I collect passport stamps and photos from all the places I visit.
Over 20 years ago Mom and Dad spotted me in a little shop near Chinatown in San Francisco and brought me home as their new pet dog. I’ve been traveling with them ever since. Our first trip together was in 1995 to Paris, France and I guess you could say that was when I was bit by the travel bug (it’s almost as itchy as a flea bite!). I’ve been to nearly 25 countries and my travel wish list is even longer!
Wherever we go, we try to do something new, try interesting foods and meet the local people. We’ve done some pretty amazing things over the years. Like heli-hiking in Canada, kayaking in Vietnam, swimming with dolphins in Hawaii, biking and snorkeling in Bali, walking along the Great Wall of China and exploring ancient ruins in Turkey. This world is pretty big and there’s a lot for one little dog to see!
