On my weekend getaway to Phuket, I got to play with baby elephants! Seriously, it was the coolest. I’m pretty sure elephants are my new favorite animal. They’re such intelligent, playful, gentle creatures.
We swam with Yaya, who is four years old, and Wifi, who is two. Wifi is still too little to climb on, but Yaya loved it when we climbed on her trunk and let her throw us off into the water.
Afterward, we fed Yaya her favorite treat: a coca-cola which she opened herself, and a Kit-Kat (chocolate and coke… one of my favorite combos too!) Wifi ate his favorite snack, a pineapple. He’s still too little to peel it himself, so Yaya peeled it for him. Their friendship is too cute!
Thanks for stopping by. A little about me — I have a latte each morning and drink about 7 cups of tea a day (not exaggerating.) I live in Atlanta where I'm going to law school. I like long distance running and I love my city and I love exploring our beautiful earth. I believe in following our passions & being free.
I started this blog to document and share my favorite moments while traveling. This is a place where I process my ideas, share the aches and joys of my heart, speak truth, and shine light on the beauty I see in the world.
I've realized that what I probably love most about traveling is the same thing I love about writing — the way it connects me to myself and other people. I hope as you read my words, you feel connected to our shared humanity.
Thank you for reading. :)
