Animalcouriers left the UK a few days ago, having collected Camille’s handsome Persian cat Vladi from his mum Sylvie. Vladi travelled with us to Paris, as Camille has returned there after working in London.
We then headed through France and Switzerland to Italy, and took a ferry from the toe of Italy to the Sicilian port of Messina. We were going to take the catamaran from Sicily to Malta, but it wasn’t available, so we made alternative plans to use the EuroMed Freight route. We were told that our van could go but only one passenger, so courier J volunteered to fly to Malta instead.
At check-in it transpired that the ferry sailing was delayed. So we left the van to make the ferry crossing by itself (as there are no pets on board), and courier M took the same flight as courier J.
On Malta we booked in to the lovely Corinthia Palace Hotel where we’ve enjoyed staying before. The staff were eager to tell us about their new policy of welcoming dogs to the hotel with their owners. They’ve created a thoughtful programme of dog-related services and even built a swimming pool for dogs!
