Sharing a kayak, paddling our way down a stream in the Amazon rainforest. What an amazing experience! Incredible wildlife, gorgeous scenery, so peaceful. Also, nearly kayaked face first into two massive hand-sized spiders chilling on an overhanging branch.. definitely added a little adrenaline to an otherwise tranquil ride down the gorgeous river.
Have just emerged from a number of days escaping the world out in the Mongolian steppes. No wifi, no running water and sleeping in a gorgeous traditional Mongolian Ger. Memories of hairy yaks, the quietest places in the world and the sound of howling wolves are now embedded in my memories of this fascinating country.
