After spending the day feeding, bathing and playing with elephants I realized one thing that I already knew but never actually thought about it before.
Traveling the world has opened my eyes in many ways and I feel like these past two years my perspective about the world has changed drastically. This experience made me realize I need to keep traveling the world, go as many places as I can and take advantage of every opportunity that comes across me. I’ve always being an animal lover, but growing up as a kid I never thought I was ever going to actually bath with an elephant. I remember how happy I was every time I visited the Bronx’s Zoo in New York, always smiling.
For many children around the world it is very common to do this, of course! My nine-year old self never imagined this would ever happen to her a decade and a half later. Not being allowed to feed them or touch them at the zoo never bothered me because I was happy I got to see them play with each other. So now I think, traveling the world is the only way to experience this.
Meet Apple, Yes like the fruit!
I thought her name was very original and cute!
“Stand up, lady!”
“Woah… I didn’t see that coming!”
“AWESOME. Can we do it again?”
Warmth hugs, happy me 🙂
I was worried she would accidentally step on my toes. Could you image? Ouch.
Time for a ride around the elephant camp!
Riding an elephant with a chair looks boring after this post, right?
Moral of the story: There’s a entire world out there with many amazing experiences like this to come…
…Can’t wait. 🙂 #AlwaysTraveling
