There’s something about being in the back of a tuk-tuk, wind blowing in your hair, watching a land seeming so ancient and mystical fly by.

A part of something real.
A part of something that’s been around a REALLY long time.
This was on our bucket list for a long time…to see gorillas and chimpanzees in their natural habitat. And last year, we made it happen!
The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda is one of the best places in the world to see mountain gorillas- if you are lucky to find them.

First of all, I want to send love and light to Nepal and all who were affected by the tragic earthquake on April 25, 2015.

We are destroying their habitat, burning down the trees and instead growing fields and fields of palm oil plantations.
