EXTREMELY CLOSE encounters with elephants, giraffes, and more at Kruger Park!

Posted on March 17th, 2014 by BreAnn

There’s something just SO incredibly exhilarating about driving around a South African National Park IN YOUR OWN CAR and encountering massive wild animals (like HUGE elephants!) SUPER up close and personal, I am actually getting giddy as I write this sentence and think back to our unbelievable experiences in the park!!  During our five day […]

SO… we jumped off a bridge!!! [videos!]

Posted on March 5th, 2014 by BreAnn

Almost one month ago (on February 7th), James and I took a leap of faith. That is: a leap of faith OFF THE VICTORIA FALLS BRIDGE that spans between Zambia and Zimbabwe!  Yep… we actually voluntarily threw ourselves off a bridge, plummeting down almost 420 feet towards the Zambezi river, just to get snapped back […]

Searching for the “Big Five” in the Serengeti

Posted on February 10th, 2014 by BreAnn

For the rest of my life, I will remember those nights in the Serengeti National Park, sleeping under the stars and hearing the sounds of ELEPHANTS roaming around and eating outside our tents at night!!  Yea… a bit scary, but how incredible, right? One of the top places in the world to go on a […]

Fifty-three Kenyan seventh graders and an English book…GO!

Posted on February 5th, 2014 by BreAnn

There’s something about being handed a falling-apart English book, being given NO guidance or lesson plan, and standing yourself in front of 50+ African seventh graders in a dirty, cement classroom with no electricity, desks falling apart, and being equipped with ONLY a single piece of chalk and your brain and being told by the […]
