A day spent feeding, bathing and playing with elephants!

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 kidย  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!

Riding an elephant with a chair looks boring after this post, right?

The art of saying "Yes!" can take you far away. Many people pass on opportunities for many reasons, one of them being fear. Through my life I've encounter many people that forget to live the present for something that might not even happen in the future. If you are constantly waiting for the right time to finally do something, like fulfill your life dream, you are going to spend most of your life waiting.

My name is Mariella and I created this blog as a source of inspiration for others to believe they can live the life they always pictured. The secret? Believe you can and take action. The world awaits!
