HAVE dog will travel seems to be the mantra for those who can’t bear to leave their loyal pooch behind when taking a break.
The USA Today newspaper takes a look at the increasing popularity of walking tours where owners can bring along their dogs.
Journalist Kitty Bean Yancey writes about an 11-day trek through the Jura Mountains that is sure to work up a healthy appetite for both pooch and walker.
And if you want to cut out the appetite building then there is the option of a less challenging walk along the Dordogne River with plenty of pit stops along the way.
For those without a pooch to stroll with, then The Times gets all loved up and offers a romantic guide to Paris.
There is plenty of useful information available including bargain hotel deals and restaurants that won't cost you an arm and leg - you could even bring a doggy bag home.
Elsewhere the Telegraph offers a warning to prospective sellers of French property highlighting how a number of people have been approached in a 'shady' manner.
Owners across France have been invited to meetings in European cities and been asked to accept part-payment in cash without anyone seeing their house and other strange practices.
Smells suspiciously of tax dodging and money laundering.
And finally one of the things I've always wanted to see is the transport of parts of the giant Airbus A380 along the roads of south west France to Toulouse Airport for completion.
At the moment I will have to settle for reading this great article in the Guardian by Aida Edemariam who followed one wing on its epic journey from north Wales.
