Back in Action!

Yesterday morning I got home from a 16 hour flight from Johannesburg, South Africa.  I spent 2 weeks volunteering at a lion conservation center in Zimbabwe and the experience was amazing, I honestly didn't want it to end-- 2 weeks was entirely too short.  I learned so much about the Zimbabwean people, their language, and customs.  I met other volunteers from all over the world..from the U.K to Iceland...from Norway to Sweden. It was awesomeeeeeeeee! 

Here are some pictures of me with the lions..and some elephants!  I love love love animals so this experience was over the top incredible for me.  











I was staying in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe...Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the World...they were crazy.  We took a helicopter ride over the falls, and also walked through them which was so much fun...even the getting completely soaked part.  






Lastly, here are some beautiful sunrise and sunset pictures! 





This was the best experience I've had in my life thus far.  The opportunity just came across and I took it, I had no idea what to expect but I didn't really care!  If you wanna do something adventurous like this, do whatever you need to do to make it a reality and just go for it!

  1. Wow, your trip sounds amazing! I like the baby elephant pic, he's so cute! Did the people at the volunteer place all speak English? I wish I was brave enough to do stuff like that.
