Pet Travel Essentials and Airplane Tips

Long flights and layovers can be a challenging experience for anyone. Throw some EXTREMELY loud bengal cats into the mix (or rather under the seat in front of you) and it really takes things to the next level. This quick list of Pet Travel Essentials and Airplane Tips will help you minimize the stress of moving abroad with pets.

  1. Preparation is everything when it comes to pet travel! Take a look at what pet import requirements exist for your final destination 4-6 months before you intend to travel. Do your research early and figure out if there are breed restrictions or quarantines needed. Research pet policies on airlines that serve your flight pattern. Every airline has different requirements and only allow a certain number of pets in the cabin (if any). So be sure to book your flight early to be safe.
  2. Calendar out all appointments you will need from vet visits, embassy appointments, USDA health endorsement appointments and more. You don’t want to be running around at the last minute getting paperwork stamped. It adds much more stress to an already difficult move. Kali bengal cat vet moving abroad pets
  3. Get an airline approved pet carrier. Make sure the measurements and materials are allowed by your chosen airline. Our particular airline allowed soft carriers only for instance and this Sherpa Travel Delta Air Lines Approved Carrier worked perfectly! Leave the carrier out in your home for a few weeks before departure so your pet gets used to it. A little crate training goes a long way.
  4. Spray some liquid calm. A few hours before leaving for your flight, spray your carrier with Feliway Natural Spray, which contains calming hormones for cats!
  5. Be vest dressed. If your cat is easily spooked or very active I recommend getting them used to wearing a Kitty Holster Harness for the trip. It is a comfortable design for cats to wear and it allows you to have a safe grip on them as you navigate through the airport while their carrier is in the scanner. No one wants a loose pet lost in the terminal!

  6. Carry on lots of love! You will want to feed your pet during the travel experience. And of course you have to deal with any accidents along the way.  I filled my carry on with lots of cat goodies for the long journey from LAX–>Moscow–>Prague.
  7. Don’t rely on sedatives. A lot of people think that sedatives will knock pets right out. It depends on your pet! It’s a highly stressful environment for animals to be crammed in a carrier surrounded by lots of energy. The sedatives did not have an immense effect on our bengals.
  8. Have sanitizer on hand. Get ready to spend some SERIOUS time in a germy airplane bathroom if you have a loud, stressed out pet mid-flight. Most (if not all) airlines require your pet to stay in a carrier under the seat in front of you. Our smallest bengal cat Kali was shrieking her head off in the cabin (think bloody-murder level audibility for hours). Finally, she calmed down in the bathroom as I could take her out of her carrier for a few minutes at a time.

  9. Roll with the punches! Pets can get sick at inconvenient times and they may not be ready to fly when you intend to depart. Get insurance on your flight so you can be flexible and understanding if something goes wrong. Our cat Ace had a major health scare about 10 days prior to our departure. We weren’t sure if he would make it to our next destination, or even survive . If you find yourself stressed like we were, you’ve got to keep faith that it will all work itself out. Somehow it always does. Ace’s health improved very rapidly and he was good to fly!

After a whirlwind 20 hours of travel, our bengal cats Ace and Kali were so happy to be in their new home!

Above all, air travel with pets can be hectic. I hope this quick list of Pet Travel Essentials and Airplane Tips helps you minimize the stress of moving abroad with pets!

Share the above tips with a pet lover if you found them useful! If you want to see more of Ace and Kali you can find them here on Instagram.

Liechtenstein Travel and Art Guide: Day Trip to Vaduz

liechtenstein flag vector mapThis Liechtenstein Travel and Art Guide has everything you need to plan a day trip to Vaduz! Don’t miss the chance to explore this hidden alpine gem and its capital city.

Liechtenstein is a 25km long alpine micro-state that is situated on the border of Switzerland and Austria. It is one of two double-landlocked countries in the world (the other being Uzbekistan). This means it is completely surrounded by landlocked countries. It makes up for its lack of coastline with stunning mountains! Over half of the surface are of Liechtenstein is covered by the central Alps.


lisa masson overlooking vaduz cathedral and mountains in liechtensteinHere are 10 fun facts about Liechtenstein!

  • 60 million false teeth are created here each year (20% of false teeth in the world)!
  • The average annual wage is ~$115,000USD.
  • The entire country of Liechtenstein can be rented out for $70,000 per day.
  • Snoop Dogg tried to rent the entire country for a music video shoot, but didn’t give enough notice.
  • German is the official language.
  • The population is ~37,000.
  • It’s the most successful country in the Olympics in terms of medals per capita.
  • Liechtenstein has won medals in the Winter Olympics, but not the Summer Olympics.
  • It’s one of the wealthiest countries in the world
  • It’s one of the most expensive European countries to live in.

Vaduz is a perfect destination to add to a trip to the Alps as it is an easy drive to make from Innsbruck, Austria(~2h15m) or Zurich, Switzerland(~1h10m). In addition, public transportation is readily available. Vaduz has a population less than 6,000 and is pristinely clean!

Be sure to check out the exterior of Vaduz Castle! It sits 120 meters above Vaduz and boasts beautiful views of the alps and the Rhine Valley. The princely family lives in the castle, so the interior cannot be visited. Once a year, the head of state invites every resident of the country to a party on the grounds.

Once in Vaduz, walk the Main Square to see many famous landmarks of Liechtenstein. The New Parliament Building is directly next to the Old Parliament building with some beautiful sculptural art across the square.

If you collect passport stamps like I do (don’t we all?), then stop in to the Tourism Office. It’s just a few meters from the Main Square and they can stamp your passport for about 2 Euros. There is also a stunning sculpture right outside the Tourism Office that is called X Cube!

A short walk from the Main Square in the other direction takes you to Cathedral of St. Florin, or Vaduz Cathedral. It was built in 1874 on the site of earlier medieval foundations.

vaduz cathedral in liechtenstein

The Kunstmuseum is a stunning modern art museum nestled right in the heart of Vaduz. The building itself is architecturally interesting and was designed by Swiss architects Meinrad Morger, Heinrich Degelo and Christian Kerez. The Kunstmuseum houses a beautiful collection of art and a tranquil café. Admission is 15 Swiss Franc and 30-45 minutes is enough time to take in the museum’s offerings.

In conclusion, I hope this post inspires you to plan a day trip to Liechtenstein! Take in the beauty of the alps and explore Vaduz.

switzerland-flag-country-vector-3-fresh-eyesThe enchanting views of the Alps bring in a large amount of tourism for Switzerland each year. Hiking and enjoying the great outdoors are a large part of Swiss life. Whether you visit in summer or winter, there is no shortage of available outdoor sports to experience this charming part of Europe.

bratislava travel and art guide by 3 fresh eyes

Bratislava Travel and Art Guide

slovakia outline filled with the Slovak flagHead to Slovakia to your next Eurotrip! This Bratislava Travel and Art Guide will help you explore the stunning capital city of Slovakia– including landmarks, art, restaurants, transportation and accommodation. This affordable, Central European destination is set along the Danube River by the border of Austria and Hungary.

Art and Architecture: Slovak Sights to See

A short river walk along the Danube rewards you with scenic views of the beautiful bridges of Bratislava. Most SNP (New Bridge or Most Slovenského národného povstania) is also known as the “UFO bridge” due to the flying saucer form at the top. There is an observation deck and restaurant in it that serves Slovak and International cuisine. Starý Most (Old Bridge) connects the historic old city of Bratislava and the newer region  Petržalka. Most Appolo (Appolo Bridge) has a sleek, modern design and lights up beautifully at night.

The Danubiana Muelensteen Art Museum is a must-see! This modern art museum is situated on a peninsula, surrounded by the Danube. The sculpture garden around the museum features stunning, large scale art installations that are backdropped by breathtaking river views. Above all, the museum is architecturally remarkable! It houses a beautiful café as well. 1-2 hours is plenty of time to explore the museum, café and sculpture garden.

My favorite art nouveau building in Bratislava is St. Elizabeth’s Church. It is known as the Blue Church for it’s vibrant color palette and feels right out of a fairytale.

In addition to art nouveau, there are many architectural influences in Bratislava including gothic, baroque, Hungarian, socialist, futurist and more.

Bratislava is not a massive street art city, but there are some beautiful works to come across especially in the city center! Be sure to take a walk down Dunajská Street and keep your eyes peeled.

A visit to Bratislava would not be complete without seeing Bratislava Castle. It is situated on top of a hill overlooking the Danube.

It is easy and comfortable to take a train into Bratislava! There are frequent trains from Vienna (~1 hour),  Prague (~4 hours) and Budapest (~2.5 hours). The main train station in the city is Bratislava Hlavná Stanica (usually abbreviated as “Bratislava hl. st.” or “Hlavná stanica”). It is located in the northern part of broader city center. Self storage lockers are available 24/7 outside of the train station at platform 1. Luggage can be stored there for a maximum of 72 hours and the locker accepts 1€ and 2€ coins.

Public transportation in Bratislava is very straightforward. You have to buy your ticket prior to boarding from yellow or orange ticket machines around the city. Tickets are redeemable on trams and buses, just be sure to validate your ticket once you board via the ticket marker. From Bratislava Hlavná Stanica you can easily ride to the city center via Bus 93 (get off at second or third stop) or via Tram 1. After that, the city center is fairly small and you can walk it easily!

Uber is not available in Bratislava, but you can use the HOPIN mobile app to order a taxi, limo or find your right public transportation line.

Where to Eat and Drink:

There are a lot of cute cafés and restaurants in Bratislava. My favorite restaurant is Bratislavský Meštiansky Pivovar (Bratislava Burgess Brewery) on Drevena Street. Great beers are brewed on site and the food is delicious, traditional Slovakian. Similarly, Pulitzer is a lovely restaurant for a tasty European lunch or dinner also. After that, grab a few drinks at U Zlateho Bazanta right by Kamenné Námestie for a fun, local beerhall atmosphere. For scenic drinks, RIVA Bar and Bistro is located on a boat with a beautiful view of the UFO bridge!

Where to Stay:

If you are keen on renting an apartment, there are many well priced properties available in the city center over on Airbnb. I stayed in a comfortable rental property in the eastern part of Old Town right by the Blue Church for ~$30USD. It also featured interesting local artwork! Click here to see what properties are available.

If hotels are more your style, the Hotel Galeria is an affordable, art-focused hotel which is a quick 4 minute walk from the train station. The hotel itself is a vibrant explosion of color and unique materials. The eclectic feel is carried into the interior design as well. It is a very artistic place to stay and you can even create art of your own on-site. There is a café as well! Click here to book.

Mikuláš (St. Nicholas) Day in Prague: A Czech Christmas Tradition

fire show mikulas nicholas day st prague czech republic devil angel flame

One of the most interesting Czech holidays to observe is Mikuláš Day in Prague! It is a Christmas holiday about St. Nicholas (Mikuláš) which is celebrated throughout Europe. Each country has its own unique traditions and customs for this Christian holiday. In the Czech Republic, it is observed on the 5th of December and centers around three figures: St. Nicholas, an angel (the representation of good) and a devil (the representation of evil). In Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, the trio move about Old Town Square, Christmas markets and around the city.

Fire Show for Mikuláš Day in Prague

St. Nicholas, or Mikuláš (me-koo-lash) dresses as a bishop in red and white which is based off of the 3rd century bishop St. Nicholas. St. Nicholas was believed to be highly invested in the moral development of youth. According to myth, parents would notify St. Nicholas of their children’s good and bad behavior. In turn, St. Nicholas would talk to the children about their deeds.

The angel (anděl) accompanies Mikuláš and rewards the good children with sweets and small gifts with a smile. In this tradition, children also leave their boots out overnight on the 5th so they can be filled with treats by St. Nicholas. If Mikuláš suspects the children have been bad, then they may receive lumps of coal from the devil (čert) who rattles chains, sticks his tongue out and says “bububu” to scare them. The angel dresses in white with feathered wings and the devil wears black or red with horns.

Mikuláš and the angel visit schools often without their other companion, the devil as he is too scary. This is a great holiday to incentivize good behavior in children! In addition, teens and adults dress up on the night of December 5th in the spirit of celebration. I noticed that most people out that night preferred to be devils rather than angels.

There are many events to observe Mikuláš Day in the Czech Republic. I opted to see the fire show in Prague which featured all three figures and some amazing performances. The fire show is held on Mikuláš day at Palackého Namsětí and included stilt walking, juggling, poi, fans, hoops and more.

If you are thinking of celebrating Christmas in the Czech Republic, consider visiting on the 5th of December to observe the unique holiday of Mikuláš Day in Prague! Above all, don’t forget your angel wings or devil horns.

My Move Abroad: A New Life in Europe


There will always be a million reasons NOT to do something, especially when that something involves uprooting your entire life as you know it. The decision to move abroad has quite a few challenges.

Where will you live? Why would you leave your creative, stable job? How will you find work? What will you do with your stuff? How can you move that far from your family? And what about your pets? 

These questions presented a wide variety of obstacles that would easily merit a large enough excuse to stay put in my comfort zone of sunny, beautiful California. However, the thing about comfort zones is that not much grows there. I was ready to shatter mine and move abroad!

A completely new environment piqued my interest and I have always been drawn to European city life. Above all, I wanted to set out on a colossal adventure laced with eye-opening, soul-shaking, perspective-shifting self growth. As I really focused and set plans forth to achieve this challenging dream of life abroad, the countless excuses faded away. I have officially made the jump over to Prague in the Czech Republic without ever having visited before.

Your wildest dreams are worth pursuing!

marcel proust travel quote logo 3 fresh eyesBelieve the one reason something might work rather than the million reasons it won’t. I fully trust that large life adjustments and learning how others live is a catalyst for artistic inspiration and personal growth. Travel has opened my eyes in a lot of ways and I aim to continue that perspective shift by seeing and sharing as much of the world as I can. I hope this blog inspires you to follow your dreams, explore the world and create

I am seeking out the imaginative side of every country on this continent (and some others mixed in as well) while I am based in Prague. In conclusion, I will be sharing my favorite travel destinations, tips, art, events and heaps of photography along the way!
