    For starters, you could say I'm a travel enthusiast with an above average elephant obsession. I came up with the idea for Not Your Average about 2 years ago during a time of major change in my life. It is now a personal outlet and hopefully helpful blog focussed on travel: experiences, tips, and more. While I may not be the same person I was a year ago, I still maintain the frame of mind that inspired this blog: everyone has a story, everyone has a purpose; something unique and beautiful to give to this world. And for this reason, no moment, no day, and no person is "average". My mantra remains "whatever is good for your soul, do that". I've found that travel, along with all the experiences and challenges it brings is the best way to nourish my soul. How about you?
