May 17, 2015 - Up the Amazon - and Back Again!

To continue...... We flew from Lima to Iquitos, accessible only be air or river, then went 4 hours up the Amazon to our Lodge. When we arrived half the “lodge” was underwater – they’re having the 2nd biggest floods in history (the Amazon floods every year and its part of why you come at this time), but the water height is over 8 metres – the lodge we were in is built on stilts usually 4 metres above the ground and way back from the river – now half of it is barely above water! So there have been fewer people here than normal, as many...

South America 2015

Dec 22, 2013 - Amazing Amazon

From the heights of the Andes and the Inca Trail to the hot, steamy jungle of the Amazon. It was a big week. After saying goodbye to my friends in Urubamba, Alex and I spent our last night in Cusco having dinner at one of the restaurants on the Plaza de Armas and looking at the Christmas decorations. The next day, we flew into Iquitos and were hit by the very hot and humid and very busy small city. We had a transfer arranged already – a beaten up old taxi. But, at least it was a car. Most of the vehicles there are the 3-wheeler motos (like...

Jun 28, 2013 - Donating Blood in the Amazon

June 28 - July 5, 2013 Hola, and welcome to the jungle! Where to start? So much to tell about here! I got into the city of Iquitos early afternoon on the 28th. Iquitos is the biggest city in South America, if not the world, that cannot be reached by car. You either have to fly (which I did) or spend days upon days on a boat. I had read about different hostels online and chose this one (Green Track) based on their good reviews especially about their Amazon trekking trip. I had been emailing with the girl that helps run the hostel and plan...

Mar 11, 2013 - Day 4 in Peru

Hi everyone, Trujillo is a spectacular country. The country is really quiet and there is not much going on there. I liked it that way because I could finally get some peace and quite. In the morning after breakfast the bus picked us up. The bus was dirty and did not look as nice as the other buses that we were on in the other countries. So I did not feel as special. We took a walk towards Plays Rosaline, a big awesome mountain. Then we took a climb up the hill towards Santa Rosa. Santa Rosa is a cool mountain too. We took a lunch break a...
