Jane Goodall is one of my heroes, so when I found out that a documentary about her was being released, I knew I had to see it immediately. The only problem was that there wasn’t a showing scheduled in Orlando. Since I was overdue for my yearly trip to South Florida, I decided to plan a trip to Coral Gables so that I could see this.

Although I’d spent the past 3 years dreaming of going back to Hong Kong, I actually hadn’t set up any kind of itinerary for my trip back there this year. I suffered through jetlag for my first weekend there, and then I went to Disneyland on Monday and Tuesday. Beyond that, I hadn’t made any plans for myself.

However, on my way back to my hostel on Tuesday night, I formulated a plan to take myself on a date because it was Valentine’s Day, and I wanted to treat myself and celebrate the success of my solo travels so far.

Getting Lit at the Lake

14a

There is a lake in the corner of Indiana that is more special than all the other lakes combined. Not only is it the clearest lake, but it also holds 2 decades’ worth of some of my favorite memories. Most recently, I had a chance to make memories with my family during the 4th of July last year.

I’m a big fan of gardens. I love flowers and other plants, I love bugs and spiders, and I love all the other critters that like to scurry around the wildlife in a garden, so gardens are kind of my happy place.

With Dad wiped out from having spent so much time and energy orchestrating our amazing family trip out west, my siblings and I left him in the room to get a good night of sleep while we headed out to the Strip for a night of sibling shenanigans.

Pink Dolphins in Hong Kong

Despite being a lover of all things nature, I’m extremely skeptical when it comes to animal encounters. I enjoy seeing animals, as most people do, and the popularity of certain animals makes them easy targets for exploitation. However, it didn’t take long to find a way that I could experience Hong Kong’s pink dolphins without causing harm to them in the process.

Disney Beach Engagement

6b

“I want to practice couples photography,” I told my friend Meredith.

I really had wanted to take more photos of people, after I had enjoyed doing a beach yoga photo shoot a few weeks prior.

However, there was an ulterior motive behind my photo shoot suggestion of going to the Grand Floridian on the first morning of Meredith and Jake’s Disney World vacation.
