I’ve wanted to get up close to elephants ever since we came to Asia, but I’m always put off by the fact that so many parks claim to be ethical, yet they still use chains and hooks to force interaction, or allow people to ride the elephants.
Ethical Elephant Sanctuary near Chiang Mai is an incredible place run by a family from the Karen Hill Tribe. They have been rescuing elephants from captivity and cruelty for generations, and provide them with a beautiful place to enjoy and roam freely. There’s absolutely no riding, tricks, or performances here, just lots of happy, well looked after elephants.
This was such an incredible, unforgettable experience! Make sure that you do research and find a genuine ethical sanctuary if you want to see elephants ❤️🐘

unleash your inner child, it feels so good, makes you happy and is just a lot of fun.
we "adults" take everything so serious and being a grown-up in society means to somehow tuck away the child within us.
do you guys remember what it's like to feel the grass under your feet, to dance in the rain or play in the dirt?
sometimes it just feels good and is much needed to give yourself a break from adulthood and be a kid again. it keeps your heart and mind young, vibrant and playful!

Days with this human are my favourite and I’m lucky that in the last four months we’ve woke up together, had dinner together and said good night to each other every single day. With our work schedules before we left home everyday things like this were often a struggle and we would often have to snatch moments together between shifts. I am forever grateful that we took this risk and decided to push forward with a dream ✨Here’s to always appreciating the journey!

We seem to always find ourselves back in #tirol 🏔 since 2016 until now, we have been exploring this region countless times - from hiking, to visiting small mountain villages, and now snowboarding down the slopes. It just doesn’t get old! 😍❄️ #brixenimthale#suedtirol#winterwonderland
The Red Lotus Floating Market is a new traveling place in Nakhon Pathom that was opened in 2017 🌸🌺🌸 Technically, it is not a floating market but a red lotus pond where you can ride a boat for around half an hour (3,5$ for a trip)👨🏻🌾🌺🛶 It has an area around the lake where you can find a lot of delicious food and souvenirs. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How did we get this amazing photo? 👨🏻🌾👨🏻🌾 First of all, it is hard for tourists to use a drone in Thailand as you would need to register it. Luckily, Red Lotus Floating Market has a drone service and you can buy a whole set of pictures from your boat ride for $10$ or just purchase one pic for about $1.5🔆 We don't own a drone (because Aon does not allow Lan to buy one😢) and it was a wonderful opportunity to make one of our best pictures together so far!👬 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
Do you guys like it❓ Would you like to ride a boat like us❓ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A snippet of today’s fiddling with some of our video footage from the West Coast - This was taken at Karijini Gorges 🙌
Today I learnt that editing videos takes wayyyy longer than expected. It’s kind of like one of those things that could take you a couple of hours OR have you glued to the laptop as if it’s a seven season series of suits 😬 Except nothing pops up asking if you’d like to continue watching... 🤔 guess which category I fell under today? 🙈

Cc.@zeebalife I have a burning desire to CONNECT with people. I hate small talk. I want to have DEEP intellectual conversations of all things “controversial” with everyone. Talk politics, religion, beliefs, and yes - even sports 😅 with me. TELL ME, what does life mean to you, what are your desires and your fears, what are the things you CRAVE the most, what is YOUR purpose. No meaningful conversation meant to impact someone is superficial, rather it’s meant to have DEPTH⭐️
WHO is that ONE person that you can talk for hours and conversations go from “it’s so hot outside” to “what is the meaning of life and what exactly are we here for? 🤔💭 For me, it’s my hubby 💕 For those who know us, we cant speak about anything that we are passionate about lightly 😅🤓🙈
.. Feliz cumpleaños para ella! 🎉🎂🥂... La mejor amiga, soporte, compañera de aventuras y locuras. Agradecido de tenerte a mi lado cada día, en las buenos y en los malos momentos. Por un excelente 2019 juntos! ❤️
