me, Sunny

One day, I finally got my chance to leave my home country New Zealand and travel the world!

I packed my bag with all my favorite things and set off on a journey to explore new places and meet new friends.

As I'm traveling from country to country, I'm learning all about mindfulness in practice, which involves being fully present in the moment and paying attention to my thoughts and feelings.

My adventures are taking me to breathtakingly beautiful places, from the crystal clear waters of California to the snowy peaks of the Swiss Alps.

I met all sorts of interesting animals and made many new human friends along the way.

So come join me on my exciting adventures and learn all about mindfulness in my new, fun program series!
