The Wettest Place on Earth

  Before arriving in Hawaii I would have never guessed it to be the wettest place on Earth.  Logan telling me so and reading the sign at the lookout was just not enough clarification. Much to my dismay we got caught in daily downpours on what would start as beautiful sunny days on Kauai.  The […]

Spirit of the Elephant

Day five at the sanctuary and we sadly woke up lacking motivation.  We are tired.  We are not accustomed to the manual labor and harsh heat.  You can imagine how we are lacking some inspiration when our morning routine usually includes shoveling massive amounts of smelly poo .  Today’s session was especially festive when I got […]

Not only are we here to volunteer and share our love with the children but we are passionate about learning from them and embracing their lifestyle, too. That means we are sleeping on thin mats under mosquito nets and taking cold bucket showers.  For the next week we are vegans who do not drink alcohol and […]

Kòp kun mâak (thank you)

Thank you or kòp kun mâak, as the Thai say.  We give thanks to those who sent prayers and well wishes for our journey overseas.  We made it here safely after a very long day of travel from San Francisco.  We arrived at our hotel at 4 a.m. and we weren’t tired since it was only 1p.m. in California.  You […]
