My Dream Trip up the Amazon River
Sunday, February 24, 2013
I've never been to the Amazon River, but it holds a special place in my dreams. It has always seemed like the most exotic place on the planet to me.
I would love to rent a luxury yacht and travel upriver as far as we could go. We would have no schedule - it could be 2 months or 2 years (money, of course, would be no object either).
There would be a crew aboard who would take care of all the boat stuff, as well as all the housekeeping! And we would have a gourmet chef who would cook fantastic healthy meals and would do all my nutrition tracking for me! Also, there would be a gym aboard and a personal trainer.
We would have an experienced jungle guide who would find all the animals and birds that I want to see.
We would find giant anteaters:
and Amazon Dolphins with their insane grins:
and every beautiful bird on the river:
and monkeys, and marmosets and Golden Lion Tamarins:
and lots of Giant River Otters:
and other animals some people wouldn't like but I want to see!
The inside of the yacht would look like this:
After we got tired of the Amazon, we'd head back down the river and across the Atlantic to the Congo River! Wow, I don't want much, do I!
