There have been many different times during our travels where we either had to travel by water to reach our destination or we chose to take a tour on the water. Generally speaking, travel by water is not our first choice, but looking back it is amazing how often we end up in a boat. In fact, at least recently, almost every trip we’ve taken has ended up with some sort of water excursion. Here are a few of the different water adventures that we’ve enjoyed, but it is certainly just a sampling. Do you enjoy traveling by boat or taking cruises?
Unique Ways to Get Around
We are all used to traveling by airplane, car, boat, and trains, but sometimes you find yourself having a unique way to get from one place to another. Some might require a sense of adventure and some are just for fun, others are literally the only way to get from point A to point B. Throughout time, people have found ways to improve how they travel or overcome obstacles that keep them from getting to their destination. Even in this age of technology and modern innovation, simple travel solutions can still be found, especially in remote areas. Here are a few of the unique ways that we’ve gotten around, but certainly not all of them. We aren’t sure which of these might considered the most unique because we enjoyed them all for the experience that they provided. What is the most unique way that you have travelled?
We Made it to the Jungle
It took almost five hours in two different types of canoes to reach our eco-lodge, but we are here, safe and sound, in the Amazon rainforest. We have already seen an amazing array of birds and other animals. There have definitely been times where we felt as though we had stepped back in time and were explorers making discoveries around every corner. We have a full itinerary of treks on both foot and canoe and are looking forward to seeing as much during our four days and three nights as possible. It is time for us to head down to the canoe launch for our afternoon excursion, so here are a few photos of our trip down the Napo River (part of the Amazon River) to give you an idea of what it was like to arrive here.
