Because that’s what couples do.

If you are unable to fulfill your dream of spending a day playing with elephants — or even of having a ridiculously tall, muscular boyfriend — then you can at least live vicariously through Anderson Cooper’s Instagram page.

The CNN anchor visited Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp in Myanmar on Tuesday with his partner, Benjamin Maisani, and he has the amazing photos to prove it.

Joined by their friend, artist Pablo Raimondo, the guys visited the sanctuary that was created to provide care for elephants that are no longer able to work.

“Got to feed and help wash old elephants today at #GreenHillValleyElephantCamp near Kalaw in #Myanmar,” Cooper wrote under an Instagram post. “They have been rescued after decades working for the timber industry.”

So, to review: Anderson got to spend the day helping retired elephants while on vacation with his smokin’ hot boyfriend, and we’re not jealous at all.
