Amazon Shore line: Adventures in the Flooded Forest

This picture was taken in the Amazon Rainforest somewhere on the Juma River. The Juma is one of the many offshoots of the Amazon and the Rio Negro. Taking boats along any of these river areas gives you an opportunity to see birds, monkeys, and sometimes Caimans or Iguanas; all of which are pretty difficult to see when hiking through the dense forest. Boats are also a pretty good way to stay cool and still cover a large area. It’s a fun, not stressful, way to spend a day!

Howler Monkeys at the Juma Lodge

This picture was taken at the Juma Amazon Lodge in Amazonas State, Brazil. We stayed in the Amazon for about a week, it was a very interesting trip. The Juma is a cool place to stay, but be advised that none of the place that you’d be staying in the Brazilian Amazon are likely to have air conditioning, there are going to be bugs, it’s going to be hot, and there are going to be limited dining options. That being said, the stuff that we saw was absolutely worth any discomfort. This lodge was nice and they have activities for tourists/ travelers to do. These include jungle hikes, tree climbing, visiting an indigenous village, fishing, canoeing, and more! I liked the lodge a lot, but it’s definitely a little on the secluded side, so bring some books and be prepared for some downtime, it’s unlikely that you’ll be out during the hotter parts of the day.

Ferris Wheel

This is the Wiener Riesenrad in Vienna, Austria. This ferris wheel is the oldest standing ferris wheel in the world. It’s located at the Prater amusement park/ fun-faire. The park is a bit odd, but really fun. The ferris wheel is really cool, especially at night when it’s all lit up. If you have a little extra time i’d recommend it, it’s a unique park and you get a good view from the top.
