After going through a bad breakup, a woman from Pennsylvania decided to go on the trip of a lifetime to try to find herself — and she ended up finding someone else, as well.
"I wanted to do something that would allow me to become more independent," Jessica Haltzman told The Dodo. "I decided that after my AmeriCorps year of service was finished I would travel."
Haltzman learned about a tree conservation organization in India called Sadhana Forest. "I decided that would be the perfect place to start," Haltzman said.
In the midst of this journey, Haltzman was staying at a hostel in New Delhi, India, one day when she heard crying. She rushed outside to try to locate the individual in need of help. "What do I find? I find a tiny little puppy laying on the street in front of the hostel," she said. "I knew at that moment I needed to save his life."
