    Travel: Chapultepec Zoo

    The Chapultepec Zoo! It’s in the heart of Mexico City and it’s free. The zoo has many North American animals, and a whole section with bison, bears, and deer. So odd to see when our National Parks here in Canada host those animals with thousands of acres of land. Compared to the two other zoos we visited in 2022 – the Omaha Zoo and the Australia Zoo (post coming sometime this year!), the Mexico City Zoo was lacklustre for sure. Don’t get me wrong, the…

  • Omaha Zoo - one of the world's best zoos.

    Travel: Omaha Zoo

    The Omaha Zoo – one of the world’s best zoos. From the aquarium to the giraffe habitat, this place is awesome. A must see if you’re ever in Omaha. First, my favourite experience of the whole zoo was the giraffe habitat. I did a whole separate post on it, yet here are a couple of photos for you to sneak a peek. The aquarium is also worth checking out. Not only will you get to escape from the sun, yet you’ll also get to see…

  • Scott Aquarium - a great adventure in Omaha!

    Travel: Scott Aquarium

    Scott Aquarium – one of the features at the Omaha Zoo. This place is full of underwater creatures, some beautiful colours, and breathtaking plants. Let’s check out some of the photos from the aquarium. First, the aquarium is a nice break from the heat. We visited in late July, early August when the temperature was in the high 30s with around 80-85% humidity – talk about hot! Scott Aquarium The underwater colours are amazing – I’m often caught off guard by how colourful plants are…

  • Giraffe Habitat at the Omaha Zoo - one of the best experiences ever!

    Travel: Giraffe Habitat

    The Giraffe Habitat at the Omaha Zoo is an amazing experience. For $5.00, yes five dollars, you can feed a giraffe. This sweet girl is Lolo, she’s an 8-year-old giraffe who loves to eat. Lolo is the coolest. Before they let you in (only one group at a time) the go over some rules. One, don’t touch the giraffe. Two, don’t make any sudden movements, be calm and talk softly. Three, if she takes the whole branch, don’t reach for it! I held onto that…

    Travel: Oregon Zoo

    The Oregon zoo! I love the zoo and the Oregon Zoo is no exception. They run a humane system of working with experts and stand strong on many issues such as climate change, exotic pets and palm oil. Oregon Zoo The Oregon Zoo is relatively inexpensive at only $14.95 during the high season. The day we visited it was raining, yet not to worry – we had fun and saw so many animals! This mountain goat is all about playing in the rain. He’s climbing…

    Milwaukee Zoo Milwaukee Zoo. What a place. We’ve been to a few zoos – the Dallas Zoo, the LA Zoo and then some animal places in Las Vegas. This zoo is great. Different from other zoos, yet still just as fun. One of the best parts about this zoo – the cost is only 14.95$ a person. What? So cheap. Okay – being from Canada, I just loved these lazy grizzly bears. Not only were they adorable, but their claws – look how big they…

    Photos: LA Zoo

    LA Zoo Our visit to the LA Zoo in early October – we got there at 9:50 and were greeted by flamingos rushing towards us! So fun. This Koala is such a cute little site…he climbed on the roof of his structure. He got stuck and it took him about 5 minutes to try and figure out how to get back down – it was my favourite experience of the whole day. Plus, seeing a Koala makes me think of Sheldon Cooper and his Koala…
