    Amazon adventures continued

    January 5, 2020 in Peru ⋅ 🌧 24 °C

    More antics in the amazon including monkey Island (not the best photos) but we did get to feed them up close and personal which was an amazing experience 😍 before they realised we had no food left! Needless to say they got alittle angry about this, so we had to make a quick exit with the help of our tour guide distracting them with a few left over apples 😅Read more

    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!

    Machu Picchu

    January 24, 2020 in Peru ⋅ 🌧 26 °C

    Für den Sonnenaufgang waren wir zu spät, doch mit den vielen Wolken wäre es nichts geworden, Doch der Nebel gab einen sehr tollen, romantischen Blick auf die Ruinen.

    A Weekend in the Amazon

    January 3, 2020 in Peru ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    So we spent a weekend in a lodge just outside of Tambopata nature reserve in the Amazon rainforest. That was an interesting experience! We waded through flooded rainforest, got eaten alive by mosquitoes (and definitely caught some sort of mild jungle fever), and sweat profusely 24 hours a day. It was a swampy, stinky, insect ridden dive into the jungle, and we really enjoyed it!
    Despite the trouble adjusting to the heat (and the need to be coated in deet at all times) we ended up having a great taste of life in the jungle. We tried local food (chicken and rice wrapped in bijao leaf) I found my new passion in life; taking long naps in a hammock, and Charlotte became best friends with a jungle cat. Not to mention the wildlife! We saw giant otters, Capuchin monkeys, red howler monkeys, squirrel monkeys (and red squirrels that weren't monkeys) macaws, parrots, parakeets, a black tarantula...'s leg, and hundreds of species of butterfly. Oh and one really weird looking mushroom. Even though we weren't so lucky with some of the more infamous Amazonian fauna like Anacondas and Cayman, it's a wild place and what you get to see is pure luck, we still really enjoyed our stay in the Amazon. Although ultimately that might just be the jungle fever talking.

    Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion

    November 29, 2018 in Peru ⋅ 🌧 29 °C

    Had an easy/late morning. Woke up to the sounds of insect and different animals than we were listening to last night. Nice breakfast in the "Casa Grande" (big house) and then arranged pictures and got caught up on "stuff".

    It rained a bit this morning while we were in the Casa Grande (loved it). And then the sun came out again :-)!

    This afternoon we will do a canopy hike. We will climb up ?meters into the top of the forest and then walk across bridges in the tree tops.

    Will post pictures after.

    Amazonie (2/3), Pérou

    May 13, 2017 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Les choses rigolotes dans la forêt d'Amazonie :

    Avant-hier soir les parents sont allés faire une balade nocturne dans la forêt pour voir des insectes, les serpents et autres animaux nocturnes. À un moment, ils se sont retrouvés devant un trou de tarentule. Le guide a approché un petit bâton et l'araignée a attrapé le baton.😄 (Il y une vidéo dans l'article suivant).

    A un autre moment, on est allé faire une balade en barque pour aller voir des caïmans mais quand on en a trouvé un très gros (un caïman noir adulte), il s'est déplacé vers nous et Maman a dit ‹‹Au secours ! J'ai peur pour les enfants !››😄

    Pendant la sieste des parents, quelque chose est venu troubler leur sommeil. Maman a dit ‹‹Arrétez de faire du bruit les enfants !›› Mais ce n'était pas nous, c'était les singes qui faisaient des acrobaties dans les arbres devant la fenêtre.😄

    On a fait de la balançoire sur une liane accrochée à un arbre millénaire.😄

    Sur le lac il y avait des bruits qui faisaient peur à Maman : gros poissons et petits piranhas qui sautaient pour attraper des insectes.😄
