Amazing Amazon Sunsets !

The sunsets we’ve been having whilst in the Amazon rainforest are a photographer’s dream. I took this photo from the boat just outside the tiny Amazon village of Uara, Brazil. I couldn’t take my eyes off the evening sky, it was awe inspiring!

Zodiac trip Uara, Brazil

 

Today is Day 4 of our trip and we took an early morning trip on a Zodiac inflatable to explore a small Amazon tributary.I’ll try to add some photos later, it was a fun trip, plenty of botany to see, a few birds, a toucan, couple of owls, a local tribesman floating around doing some fishing. Looking forward to tomorrow’s Zodiac excursion, it’s a night time one,  need the bug spray but expecting to see LOTS of creppy crawlies, caimans, the odd snake or two!Watch this space!

3 Sleeps to Go

I can’t believe it’s almost here already, the trip that has been booked for over a year and OH SO MUCH has happened during that year, in fact it’s probably been one of the most eventful years of my life for many reasons.

SO much planning has gone into this trip to Peru: The Inca Trail, Sacred Valley, Ollantaytambo, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Cusco is the most likely destination whwere we would possibly have to deal with altitude sickness, hopefully our rapid intake of Gingko Biloba will see us through.

After a week in the mountains we come down to sea level, well, river level at least as we sail through Brazil from Iquitos to Belem and finishing off at Barbados after almost a month. Watch this space, depending on internet access, I hope to be posting LOTS of photos!

 

One thing is for sure, after 3 weeks aboard sea Dream 2, I’ll be adding a few pounds, looks like it will be back to  Weight Watchers once I get back , but, until then….I’m going to ENJOY every meal!!
