Meet Elvis. I met him in 2010 when I traveled to Tanzania to study abroad. In January of this year, Elvis embarked on an around-the-world bike trip (which he estimates will take him just over two years). His mission: to raise funds to support education of Tanzanian students studying wildlife conservation. He hopes to raise enough money to fund ten one-year conservation scholarships. He hopes to create more opportunities for Tanzanians to become educated in managing their own natural resources.
I was lucky enough to host Elvis for his final two nights on the east coast this week. Elvis shared some incredible stories from the first nine months of his journey; he's experienced quite a lot so far (I cannot wait to hear all about his journey across Siberia next year)!
To top off a great visit I also got to see my good friend Eric for a hot second after he made a hefty drive to see Elvis!
On another note - have a great weekend! Candy and George are coming to Boston for Bike the Hub this weekend which should be a grand ole time. I'm quite excited for some cycling down Storrow Drive (although I'm sure my bottom will feel differently on Monday after 35 miles in the saddle).
