World wandering animal advocate & rare experience curator. I lead trips to Borneo to hang with ex-captive orangutans 🦧& learn from & live with the Dayak ppl. 🌎Travel for me is no stay at a Hilton. Give me a yurt with a mosquito net or a jungle hammock. I want to experience cultures, ppl, food & rituals, different from my own. Travel creates empathy, instills compassion, makes us more aware of our privileges. This understanding is the key to global harmony and sustainability. We need to start with our environment. We are victims of comfort and convenience it’s time to get serious & hold OURSELVES, big energy, CEOs, those with the power, accountable. I used to be a live & let live wmn but this new police state of control & oppression that the GOP has created is the most disturbing assault on truth, freedom, privacy, human rights, decency, POC & women … resembling the Taliban. I’m angry AF & every American needs to TAKE ACTION to protect: reprod. choice, voting rights, truth-based education, gender & racial equality. This is no time for apathy because you might be on the privileged side of these issues. It’s time to give a damn…
Sorry I did not mean to go on a rant. Not really appropriate for this site but we all need to care about these harmful changes taking place before our eyes by the people we put in power.
