    Amazonas jungle adventure

    December 26, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 29 °C

    Celebrated all Christmas days in the Amazonian jungle in a lodge next to Puerto Maldonado in Peru 🎅...felt so unreal in this environment (33 degrees, masses of mossies and every day a new visitor in my room 😜, e.g. spider, giant grasshopper).

    Was a real adventure stay with canope bridges & zip lining 50m high in the trees, cayaking on Cayman filled rivers & night tours in the national park next to it. I tried fishing 1st time in my life and catched two Piranhas & not hurting myself 😁. Additionally, could spot apes, lizards, caymans, tarantulas, parrots, giant ants, sloth and many more.

    At the beginning after city jungle Cusco high in the mountains, this environment seemed so completely different, like another world, nearly hostile....But after a few days I got into the groove, humans are so adaptable (felt like Arnold in Predator 😁)....only the moosies I could still not tolerate 😉. Will not be my last jungle visit in my life!
