We also booked our first leg of the trip! We will begin our first 30 days with an organization called Earth Connection - right outside Merida, Mexico volunteering for a eco-restoration project, while living (ahem.. camping!) in the jungle. They also offer other lovely perks - such as dipping in their very own private cenote each day and hiking into the jungle and nearby Mayan village - just to name a few. We couldn't be more excited.
"Earth Connection is dedicated to Eco-education and Leadership. We are focused on three main areas: First, offering courses on ecological and environmental sustainability education, leadership training, Second, ecological and horticultural research and technological innovation, and third, ecological restoration and carbon sequestration."
We will come back to Portland for the kitties some time during May 2018 - after our 30 day volunteer project is completed. During our 1st leg in Mexico - we will also be looking for the next volunteer project in the Yucatan area, as well as an awesome apartment that is cat-friendly. We sure do love our babies... our nomad babies!
& thanks to Location Indie's co-founder, Jason Moore, and his Zero to Travel podcast guest, Heath Armstrong - I also began the incredibly rad "Sweet Ass Journal: To Develop Your Happiness Muscle in 100 Days", this past January 1st, writing in it daily. It helps me tremendously to keep positive and focused, opening me up to my goals, struggles and wins as well as my creativity and passion. It also helps me "slay my resistance gremlins!" Check out the book if you don't get the reference - I promise you won't regret it! ;)
