For those of you who don’t know, I’m half Italian and I love traveling to Italy! I decided on the symbol of Rome, the Colosseum on my bicep to represent my heritage and a city I love.

The ancient site of Aptera is mostly known due to the presence of some well-preserved Roman cisterns that were used to provide water for the city baths. However, the site is home to numerous interesting Greek-Roman ruins such as villas, an ancient theater, Roman baths and a small temple that was probably dedicated to the goddess Demeter.
Snowshoeing at the Oulanka National Park
I find that when I come home from my travels, I see people on their smartphones and they’re not connecting with each other. They think they are: Facebooking, Tweeting, Instagramming. There’s nothing wrong with that but to me, true connection is face to face. True connection is me having a chat with you; you seeing me, me seeing you. I actually remember this very clearly, I came back from a trip I was on in Oman in the Middle East, and I realized how people weren’t as connected, meaning on iPhones, and iPads and computers and all this kind of stuff. And yet they seemed so much happier.

Lastly, we visit the Elephant Nature Park, an Elephant sanctuary located about a 45-minute drive north of Chiang Mai. They have 47 elephants that were rescued from the logging and trekking industry. Lek Chailert, is the found of the sanctuary. She started working with elephants in 1992, then in 1995 she started her first sanctuary. Her goal is to educate the world about the situation with the Asian elephants. There currently are no fences so the elephants can roam wild 24/7!

The food in Shillong is different from other parts of India; the most diet here is full of the beef and pork. Where the carcasses are butchered in plain view I visited markets for beef and pork during my stay. I noticed while I was that culture and the people in Shillong appeared to be more influenced by people in southeast Asian nations than the rest of India. For the very best street food in the city, I highly recommend making a visit. You can’t go wrong with whatever there!
