 This was before we all knew that elephant rides were not good for elephants. All I knew at the time that it was a super cool thing. I believe this was at African Lion Safari, but I can't actually find a photo, so I'm not 100% sure! This photo was actually taken at the Toronto Zoo a decade or so later.

Bali is beautiful. Although I don't think ill ever ride an elephant again. they should be in the wild not used to entertain us. lesson learned.

 India 2018 - Rode an Elephant in India. Was not happy with the treatment of the animals. Next time I would rather bathe and help take care of them.

In the summer of 2015, when I traveled to India with 11 other girl-guides and four leaders, we went for an elephant ride up to the Amber Fort. It was a truly brilliant experience, and I can heartily recommend it to any other India-goers!

The elephant was so big and didn't have a saddle so it was a bit scary but well worth it. Beautiful creature.

 I got to ride an elephant at the Tadmor Shrine Circus.  I got to sit in front and pet its head.  It was very dry and hairy, and surprisingly tosses you back and forth a lot.  It was fun, but I'm glad we don't ride elephants for regular transportation.. my legs would kill me! lol

OH MY GOSH!! My mum and I rode an elephant called 'Bun-me' in Thailand, just outside Bangkok at the Elephant Village by the Floating Market! 

Getting onto her was scary at first, but once we started moving it was a lot better, and at one point she was flapping her ears they hit my foot!!! She was very calm though, and sure did love her bananas!

 When I was little and rode an elephant I didn't really understand that animals are not for this use. Now, looking back, I feel pretty bad that i did this.

During my time working at the conservation I got one chance to ride an elephant. I rode him while we were giving them a bath and it was amazing. He got up and walked and I felt so high in the sky and it was an amazing feeling!

Somewhat uncomfortable.  I didn't know that my face would be hit with tree branches and I felt like I was going to slide off of my elephant seat.  All in all, amazing expierence though.
