The Great EscAPE

Feel Good Friday

Traveler Kayla ventured deep into the mountainous landscAPE of the Democratic Republic of Congo…

on a mission to gAPE into the eyes...

of a whole new culture.

Sitting amongst this family of mountain gorillas in the jungles of Virunga was an experience that became Kayla’s greatest escAPE.

  

Culture comes in all shAPEs and sizes and this was no different.
