KENYA | A DAY WITH ELEPHANT ORPHANS AT DAVID SHELDRICK WILDLIFE TRUST, NAIROBI.

PSX_20180718_164121.jpgPrior to visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) Elephant Nursery, the only elephant my son has ever seen since he was born was Dumbo from his favorite American animated film. The night before our visit, we talked about baby elephants and he was super excited and couldn’t stop asking questions.

When the big day finally arrived, I ended up just as excited as he was because I couldn’t wait to see his reaction. When the baby elephants started trotting in, I saw his eyes light up in awe and his heart melt. I felt like I had just hit a jackpot! Visiting the elephant sanctuary with him was a great idea!

SEVEN DAYS TRAVEL GUIDE | FOUR GIRLS EXPLORING THE OTHERWORLDLY TERRAIN OF OMAN.

received_10216235950027409.jpegThere are a few tips and tricks you pick up on as a university student who cannot seem to give up their love for traveling. Firstly, make the best of your generous end-of-term holidays, as you are constantly told by warning adults that once you reach the “real world,” month-long spring holidays will be a laughable thing of the past. Secondly, if you have a friend, lab-partner, course mate or housemate who jokingly invites you to come and stay in their beautiful country, make sure to pounce before they can take it back.

FIVE THINGS TRAVELLING HAS TAUGHT ME.

MOLDIVWE NEED TO TAKE GOOD CARE OF MOTHER EARTH.
This one is crucial. The sad reality is many of us who live in and travel to the best places in the world often fail to appreciate and take care of them.  It breaks my heart going back to a place only to find it worse than I remember it. If we don’t take care of our natural resources, years from now, there won’t be a reason to travel anymore. There is so much beauty around us—beauty that we MUST preserve so that the future generation can also enjoy it. Read more
