“Home is where my dog is.”

Led Astray was born out of love. A cliche, perhaps, but true nonetheless. In the late summer of 2013, a sweet, shy puppy walked into my life and changed it forever. I fell in love with the small mutt I named Chiquita and vowed that I would never abandon her. As such, combining my feelings for her with my passion for traveling, yearning for adventure, and habit of wandering, the culmination is this.

From navigating airports and flights, to negotiating train stations and locomotives, to guiding our way through subway systems and on local city transit. From the urban and suburban to the wild and tropical, we plan to see and do it all together.

Here I will share my experiences and adventures in travel, leisure, and lifestyle with my furry little confidant at my side, with the hope that Led Astray will act as a resource of information for fellow dog lovers and wanderlusters alike. After all, I believe our companions should be included in every aspect of our lives.

These are the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of a pair of wanderers. Together, we are Led Astray.
