I am going to be very honest here... At the beginning of my travel experience I visited some places I am still ashamed of associated with (quite frankly) animal cruelty! My only excuse was that I was very naive and acting like a mindless sheep following the herd of nothing but ignorance. (You will spot a photo in the images below as an example of this pathetic behaviour). I quickly discovered how terrible this experience was and learnt a lot about the animal exploitation that exists around the world.
At the beginning of my journey, sharing my hut, or tent, or living space with various creepy crawlies wasn't particularly comfortable for me - nights were sleepless and irritable and I simply wanted them away from me, or out of my sight by any means (#howselfish).
But as you can see from the rest of my travel images above, I began to spend so much time whilst travelling surrounded by all different kinds of species - wild, weird and wonderful creatures! As time went on, sharing space gradually became more attainable. Even when I was nervous of some animals I came across, I didn't feel like I wanted to harm them. Sounds crazy, but when I found myself travelling alone, they actually became my company, my friends; they made me feel safe and not alone! #IloveGeckos It was not long after I established this beautiful connection with creatures of the world that I made important life decisions:
Not enjoying eating meat or fish for the majority of my life I took control of my thoughts and feelings and made the decision to become vegetarian (a step in my correct path). People often ask me why? (and besides the obvious reasons such as animal cruelty and to support the sustainability of our planet) I tell them...
"because I feel so much better in my mind and my body!"
Rather than trying to defend all my reasons for not eating meat or fish (which can be quite tedious, when all I want to do is have a friendly sociable conversation whilst I bite into my bean burger), But when I use this phrase, people don't usually have an argument or response... I feel better, I am happier and that's a fact from the heart and soul! ;)
