Manaus, Amazonas State, Brazil
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be visiting the lifeblood of the planet, the exotic Amazon River. The world’s largest river, it’s the legendary source of so much of the air and water on Earth. Every day that I was there, I felt like I was living a National Geographic fantasy.
We were in complete wilderness, detached from communication and modern comforts. Yet the fact that we were in such a remote location, helped us become more in tune with the lush natural beauty all around us.
From fishing for piranhas, canoeing through the flooded forest, spotting caymans at night, getting caught in a rainforest drizzle — there is an unforgettable experience to be had at every turn, if you would only open up yourself to your wild side.
