Why I don’t care if you call me lucky.

Why I don’t care if you call me lucky.

I’m a 24 year old white girl, running her own business, traveling the world and living in London. Ofcourse I’m f*cking lucky.

If there’s one thing that upsets me in the travel blogging world, it’s bloggers who call out strangers and friends for calling them lucky. Sometimes they even go so far as writing blogposts about how they AREN’T lucky. About how EVERYONE can live the life they lead, as long as they prioritize their life a little better. (Judgmental much?)

I get called lucky on a weekly basis. Guess what? I don’t care. If you tell me I’m lucky for whatever reason (and there’s many: the traveling, the business, the clients, the living in London) I will smile and nod in agreement. Yes, I am damn lucky. You’re right.

One of my favourite things about traveling is getting up close with wildlife. Really being in touch with nature, marveling at the local animals in their natural habitat… feeling so tiny and so humble in this great big universe. But traveling and animal experiences are a very touchy subject. It’s so easy to go wrong and unintentionally support a toxic industry that exploits and mistreats animals. You may not even realise you’re doing it. But how do you know what’s ethical and what’s not? What animal projects to support and what to avoid? To be on the safe side: you should probably skip these 10 travel experiences with animals.
