Similar to my post and video about the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, I didn’t get a chance to see the Amazon during my RTW trip in 2009, so when I got my schedule for my trip a few months ago with Cox & Kings, I was excited to get a chance to see the Amazon for the first time.
Although I had a really great time on my couple days there, I literally feel like I only scratched the surface, which is probably the feeling you should have after spending a very limited amount of time in a very small part of the massive Amazon rain forest.
This limited taste was just what I needed to get inspired to head back at some point, hopefully in the semi-near future, to do a lot more there. Given my environmental bent and my love for boats and river transportation, I can see a multi-week journey in my future.
In the meantime, I hope you like this video I did about my time in the Peruvian Amazon, and if you do, I would really appreciate it if you would subscribe to my YouTube channel. I am trying to get to 500 subscribers by the end of the year and have a ways to go. Thanks!
