Choreographed and danced by the #bandanabroz @jaefusz @lakesmits Favorite animal?
For me it's my butterfly spirit guide. If you could only take one person on an adventure who would it be? Tag them!
On this adventure to Alaska I had my sister by my side :) #brotherbear #sistermoose #homyna While in Thailand I had the privilege of working with @elephantjunglesanctuary to film these amazing creatures.

Unfortunately the elephant population in Thailand is not what it used to be and some estimate less than 8,000 elephants are left in the whole country.  The majority of these elephants are domesticated and used in the tourism industry which often subjects them to mistreatment.  The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is a unique organization in that they provide a place where the elephants can freely and safely roam and tourists have the opportunity to interact with the elephants in a ethically sound way.

I loved everything about my trip to Thailand and encourage anyone with the opportunity to go to visit.  And when you do, please do some research before and do not invest in the abuse of these amazing animals. Where we put our money speaks, and that small exercise of choice is what makes a real difference. I still can't believe I got to see the monarch migration in Mexico. Another thing crossed off the bucket list! What should I do next???
