Elephant Nature Park

Update posted by Lauren Brown On Apr 05, 2016

It's the 5th of April. In 5 weeks, we start our final exams, and then 10 days after those are done, we leave for Thailand. It still feels slightly surreal-I'm focusing so much on studying for the exams that the idea of a month away in a (different) foreign country seems like a dream. I took a week 'off' from our Spring vacation to go lamb again in Dumfries and Galloway. Out of all the husbandry experiences I've had so far, lambing is by far my favorite. Of course, I've only done sheep, cow and horse. Elephant will be something else entirely.

Every once in a while, I'll catch myself day dreaming of what each day will be like in Thailand. I know it will be hard work-dirty, physically exhausting, possibly dangerous-but what will we actually be doing? What will we see? What is the daily medical routine like on a sanctuary like that?

I can't wait to find out.

I can't speak for Nicole, but for me, the whole idea of spending a month in Thailand hasn't quite seemed real. Yes, we put down a deposit, and yes, we've started fund raising, but... it's not even Christmas yet!
However, tonight, we took another step on our adventure, one that suddenly brought home the fact that we're actually doing this.

Tonight, I bought our plane tickets. Suddenly, it's actually official.

We're going to Thailand!
