Anyone ever wonder what it feels like to be FREE?
Free from mental bondage.
Free of ego.
Free of institutional debt.
Free of societal judgement.
Free of personal condemnation.
We left the lovely Pai and went back to Chiang Mai for a day trip to the Elephant Nature Park.
Trish did the background check (it is also mentioned in the Lonely Planet guide) and this is for real a elephant-friendly park. The owner dedicates her life to rescuing elephants. They have a lot of different tours. You can even volunteer to work at the camp for a while!
We chose the Freedom Tour, which means that we went to a camp where seperated elephant-families were reunited in an elephant-friendly environment.
The tour includes feeding them, take a walk in the park and some playtime in the water. The feeding part was the most important, as elephants have one big rule when it comes to friendship: ‘no food - no friends’. Can you understand now why I feel so connected to them?
It was a great experience and the fact that I got to do this with Kelly and Trish (part of the Pai-family) made it even better! At some the elephant-guides were hanging around and taking selfies so we kind of did the same thing ‘cuz #squadgoals . Also as fellow solo-travellers we did our best to capture the best moments so we don’t only have selfies when we get back home . ________________________________________
After this I got sick for 3 days and spend my time mostly sleeping in my dorm. I know I have some catching up to do about my trip, but I am totally working on it!
