I wished "Gentle Giant" bon voyage this past Saturday on my first day at the fabulously charming Stellenbosch @slowmarket at Oude Libertas. "Gentle Giant" is heading all the way to Germany - his new forever home!

If you missed my blog post about our wildly amusing encounter with this majestic (and intimidating!) pachyderm, follow the link in my bio..

Lions are just like big cats. Big, terrifying cats that can easily kill you. Elephants on the other hand just don't have time for our nonsense. #walkwithlions #lionencounter #elephantencounter #alertafrica #antelopepark #antelopeparkzimbabwe

I can't handle my life right now. #elephantencounter

A perfect way to spend our last day before heading back to the cold. #elephantencounter #elephant #gentlegiants #toddlerfirsts #africa #zambia #makingmemories

In January, I quit my job in NY, despite being terrified about what to do next. I spontaneously decided to backpack around Asia, and I convinced my roommate to come with me. We traveled to 7 countries in a month, and had a blast! I wasn't ready to go home though, so I canceled my return flight and decided to carry on for another month in Thailand solo.
.
That month changed me. I went with the flow, while following a vague itinerary that constantly evolved as I made new friends with like minded travelers in hostels. I basked in my newfound freedom, and thrived on adventure. I explored countless temples, trekked through the jungle, encountered both wild elephants and the elephant in this picture, who belongs to the local villagers, I got advanced open water scuba certified and swam with giant manta rays, but most importantly I realized that solo traveling is something I am not only capable of, but that I thoroughly enjoy.
.
I came back to the U.S. with a calm unlike any I had possessed before, everything seemed simplified and I knew I wanted to maintain this inner peace and confidence I collected in Asia. These souvenirs were more valuable than anything money could have bought me. They gave me the courage to start a new life in a van, and I've never been happier.
.
Challenge yourself to leave your comfort zone in 2018; whether that means taking a solo trip to Asia, or pursuing your passions. I hope you take a leap and explore the infinite adventures waiting for us in this world.
