Onward Script created by Mati Rose

My name is Kathryn. I live in Oakland, CA … for the moment. In early September I will set out for a seven month voyage through Africa and Asia to volunteer at various animal sanctuaries – working with lions, dolphins, elephants and maybe even sea turtles. Along the way I expect to have a story or two to tell … hence this blog. I’m going on this journey – this pilgrimage of sorts – for countless reasons… chief among them to expand my understanding of the world and myself. Other than that – I’m trying to steer clear of expectations. Because really … who knows what might unfold? And isn’t that delicious?

My tentative itinerary:

San Francisco – Zambia – Tanzania – Zanzibar – Vietnam – Cambodia – Laos – Myanmar (Burma) – Thailand – Bali – Flores Island – San Francisco. ONWARD!
