Crossing through The Amazon was an unexpected manic experience. I wasn’t prepared, at all. I had packed for 6 weeks of beach fun in Central America. NOT hiking through the AMAZON. No complaints though. Well other than the moments of me going crazy from all the mosquito itching. Yes, that was intense.
But all in all, not so bad. Actually it was quite incredible! I saw pink dolphins, held a tarantula, drank from trees, and met with a shaman to participate in an ayahuasca ceremony. Talk about an intense week!
4 hour ride down the Amazon before hiking to the camp site.
Me dominating fears.
And feeling quite small surrounded by these massive trees.
These trees have magical powers, like many of the medicinal plants in the jungle!

I will never EVER forget the creatures of the Amazon. I saw the BIGGEST cock roach of my life. I’m talking the size of a baseball. Seriously.
I survived you Amazon, but I doubt I’ll be back.
