Andrea Zurlo Creative

I’ve had a bit of a lifestyle change since I last checked in here on the blog: I’ve arrived in Budapest, Hungary to study abroad for the semester! This past week has felt like a whirlwind, and I’m excited to share it all with you.

And then there are those stories we don’t hear: like how Fido and Whiskers were worried sick at home, while their owners played sitting ducks on the highway.

If you’re like me, you have a pet or two and will probably be at work this Friday and maybe even over the weekend.So for those of us whose shows must go on in spite of theimpending doom of southern snow, here’s how to ensure you, Fido, and Whiskers make it out…
