I have spent the last 2 weeks doing conservation work with reptiles and amphibians in the Las Guacamayas national park in Guatemala, with some truly amazing human beings. A phenomenon I wasn’t expecting.
I went there looking to reconnect with nature, and get to watch some of my favourite animals in their natural habitat.
On top of that, I found so much more. I found the light I needed at one of the darkest times of my life, I found inspiration and a new faith in humanity.
I found joys in hardship & the most modest of creature comforts, and new realisations about the world we think we live in. I found a new confidence in myself and a deeper love for nature than I already had.
I will post an album of pictures of my trip, and the amazing animals I encountered, and I would like to thank Rowland Griffin, of Indigo Expeditions for making it possible. He does some amazing work and I am proud to have been a part of it.
If any of you would like to partake in one of his expeditions, and hopefully take all the positives from the experience that I have, then drop him a message, I can’t see how anyone could regret it.
