For me traveling to Sri Lanka was an experience of a lifetime.  
Anyone who knows me knows that I eat, sleep, and live for elephants.  
I have worked with these magnificent animals for over a decade. 
Yet seeing them in their natural surrounding was like seeing one for the first time.  
I still vividly remember getting goose bumps upon seeing and smelling a very large musthy tusker in Kaudulla National park.  
It was our first visit to a park, and with the chance of seeing a tusker being very rare,
I felt that if we saw nothing else the trip would still have been a success for me.  
These memories will remain with me forever.  I am grateful to have the chance to experience this
and share it with such a great group of people that care so much about such a magnificent species.
