Learning Good Habits on Holiday – and Keeping them at Home

A holiday is a time to relax, but also a time to learn new things in abundance. You are in a whole new part of the world, a place where you can learn so much about other people, their cultures and their country. It’s a good time to be open minded and learn as much as you can. We will often have many cultural experiences on holiday, from trying new foods to discovering new wildlife and habitats. Whatever it is you find yourself doing on holiday, be sure to take these habits away with you.

Volunteering With Elephants on Holiday

Volunteering with elephants might seem like something of a dream, but you need to be so careful. Many so-called elephant sanctuaries aren’t sanctuaries at all, and actually, keep elephants in terrible conditions purely for the pleasure of tourists. There certainly are places where you can volunteer with elephants, but you need to be careful. Here are some tips: Do as much research as you can.
