Pancakes and puppies!

Hello dearest blog readers! Apologizes for the late blog post – my internet stick decided to be a bit fidgety yesterday! Yesterday morning we were invited to join the forest rangers on their sunrise run. We had one early bird trouper in our group, Amy, who drug herself out of bed to get her sweat…



PITOON!

Hello beautiful readers, Hope you’re all having marvellous days wherever you may be. Amy and Jade here guest blogging from the chilly and mosquito invested dining hall (don’t worry the bushman’s is keeping them away). We awoke to a wonderful surprise announcement from Chet, saying that we were going to spend the morning at the…



The first meet and greet :O

Today we awoke to the sounds of birds and monkeys from right outside our open-air huts. It’s getting a bit chilly at night, but a much-welcomed chill from the heat of Siem Reap. After our filling buffet breakfast we got in our first dose of ELEPHANTS! We spent one hour meeting the sanctuary’s two old…



We at the Ellies!

Good evening!! It’s Katelyn here and the two week village and elephant group that just finished up in Siem Reap has arrived safely to the Elephant Sanctuary about two hours north of the city.

Good bye, fare well!

Denizens of the blogosphere, Friday was out last full day together. We started off with our last vegetarian breakfast and then went off to say our fair wells to the elephants. Kamlin and Arun Ria will stay in our hearts for a long time to come.   After some final ham mocking and one last…

Head, Soldiers, Knees, and Toes… Knees and Toes

G’day All! Wednesday brings up midway through our adventure at the Elephant Sanctuary. Our day began with a special breakfast. In addition to the usual fried rice, noodles, and toast was fried french toast filled with jam! This may not sound like the healthist addition to a balanced breakfast but it was delicious. For the…



School House Rock!

Good evening Readers, I trust you have had a pleasant day. I come to you from the dining hall, in the Elephant Sanctuary. I have volunteered to tell you the days tales. We started the morning with our beautiful vegetarian feast full of delectable flavors. We were unaware of what the day would hold and…
