We have been absolutely obsessing over an African safari trip. The thought of getting to be so up close to these animals in their natural habitat, what an incredible experience!
What is your favorite animal? 🐘🦒🐅
This photo was born out of- not an accident, exactly, but the flip side of a plan. It got me thinking about the meandering course that life takes, and how a tiny happenstance can nudge the needle and turn you slightly in a different direction without you even noticing at the time. Then, a year later you stop and see the distance between now, and the different now if you hadn’t changed. Little things can have big impacts. Ever think about these things?
Guess which blog post I’m working on next? Yep, you guessed it! Only one of the most naturally beautiful places in the world 😍 Still can’t quite believe I got the chance to visit.
On the boat tour we took in Phi Phi, we were able to see Maya Bay from the water, which is pictured here. Thailand shut Maya Bay down for 4 months early this summer to try and clean it up from the damage it’s taken from over-tourism. I read this morning that those 4 months are now up but they’ve decided to keep it closed indefinitely because the corals have yet to salvage themselves.
The issue is, why wait until a place is completely damaged to take action? Especially when we’re talking about something so fragile like a coral reef. These are unequivocal masterpieces of our world and to see a place become ruined beyond repair because the necessary steps weren’t taken absolutely breaks my heart 💔 If this isn’t a sign for the rest of the world to wake up and start protecting our earth before it dissipates then I’m not sure what will be.
PLEASE, especially while you’re traveling, take note of a couple things:
• Always follow the LNT Rule (Leave No Trace)
• Pick up your trash and don’t be afraid to pick up other’s too. I spent lots of time on the islands collecting garbage off the beaches.
• Know the grounds you’re traipsing on to ensure not to leave behind any damage.
• Spread awareness and your knowledge about being environmentally-friendly.
• Be eco-aware so our children and their children will be able to see this world as we see it today 🌍
Wart ihr schonmal in New Zealand 🇳🇿 ❓
Wenn Nein, dann habt ihr was verpasst ... Ich kann euch nur sagen, dass die Reise von ca. 20-25 Std. Flug ✈️ bis dorthin jede Sekunde wert ist ... ——————————————— Die Farben / die Wasserfälle / das Meer / die Berge / die Wälder / die langen Road strecken ... VERZAUBERN EINEN ‼️‼️‼️ Eins habe ich draus gelernt ... Man sollte die Welt kennen lernen in der wir Leben, sie hat so viele schöne Seiten und Ecken, dass egal wer diesen Weg bestreiten wird. Merken wird, dass er Reicher in der Seele geworden ist. 📍 #hukafalls#taupo#newzealand
By far one of the coolest experiences I’ve had was flying in to this remote lake on a float plane. After that the trip just got better and better, with great company, views, and lots of fish. #engineersoutdoors
