And so people change just like seasons change, but I guess I had forgotten that while living in Neverland

Getting out there to throw some 🌸 🌺 for you. First time we went here was when you and Ang took us out kayaking, there was some 🍷 involved 😊, remember? It happened to also be my early bday surprise party yesterday. It made me feel a little bit less sad. Happy to be surrounded by loved ones. Definitely thinking about you. Because life is too short not to be around beautiful people

I can’t believe you’re gone.  You know i love you, you know that after you left I always missed you, and we’ll miss you forever. You were one of my best friends here, right after we met, and you were a truly good friend. I always thought you would come back and we could continue having each other in our lives. You’re some of the most beautiful and caring people I’ve ever met. I really wish I could’ve been there for you, I would’ve flown there in an instant. Sorry I didn’t. Hawaii and the world will miss on such a BEAUTIFUL human being. I’m confused, I’m heartbroken, I’m angry and upset you’re gone, because there’s just so much for us to share in this life, Ryan. But I’ll see you in the next one, and I hope you’re at peace now Ryan.

As we prepare for the first hurricane to (hopefully not) hit Oahu since I don’t know how long, I need to remind myself to look at the glass half full (if it looks half empty it’s only cuz I drank the rest!) to enjoy the beautiful sunset on this island, to fill every container  in my house with water, to pack REALLY the essentials (basically documents, a change of clothes, and food for my pups) and pray, or whatever you do cuz I don’t really pray, pray or wish we will stay safe and like many others say “nothing will happen”. And I hope they’re right. I’m more on the worry side, I’m a worrier, I can’t help it. I worry when I fly, worry when my animals get sick, worry when we get a (fake) alert about ballistic missile incoming, I worry. But I also think, I have a fucking great life. So cheers 🥂 , TO LIFE !

Every time I’m back, I look at Spain differently, and I appreciate it and love it even more. Imagino que es normal ya que no puedo verlo y olerlo todos los días del año. 🌍 •

Siblings, cousins and grandma! It’s not that common that we’re all together to take this photo 💕

Rescue elephants living their happily ever after, rescued from riding camps, lodging, breeding, circuses... rescued from a lifetime of abuse and being treated like possessions. Some of them have been working for 99 years, even when blind, hurt by landmines, burnt, and a lot worse. If you’re in Thailand check out the @elephantnaturepark , the only non profit that truly cares for these animals. Although they’re working hard to begin a conversation with other riding camps to stop riding and treat their elephants with love, kindness and respect. 🐘💜 #savetheelephants •

Another day, another adventure! Even though my stomach hasn’t been cooperating and I haven’t been able to eat all of the foods, today we went on a great tour! We had a guide from a Karen Tribe who taught us so much about nature and his tribe. We tried cinnamon bark (from a 🌳) , he put iodine in my wound (from a 🌲 as well), we ate and smelt different fruits and plants and leaves, we whistle like a bird and like a gibbon using leaves, we saw snakes, chameleons, spiders, piglets, caterpillar, geese, and much more. We saw rice fields and strawberry fields. He made a bamboo spoon for us, he took us to his town where 400 ppl live, and we saw the small school with the kids playing. We had some of their food, home made liquor, and they gave me some spices/herbs for my stomach. They also prepared coffee from their town! We learned A LOT from this tour. And the views ... 😍

Definitely one of the highlights of this trip, and of my trips. What an amazing place! A real sanctuary where the only goal is to take care of these rescues. They also have a dog and cat shelter, and hire refugees and local families. Their food is vegan and everything seems to be truly for the wellness of the elephants. We’re staying the night in this amazing bungalow and I wish we could spend weeks volunteering with this amazing creatures! Other than that, I stepped on buffalos poop kinda on purpose, got cut with a fence, ran away from an elephant stampede, and listened to mahout music made with instruments made from recycled pipes and such. And we still have tomorrow....
What a wonderful journey when you allow things to happen
