    Sunrise at the Fitz Roy

    My Fitz Roy experience was pretty phenomenal, somewhat terrifying nonetheless phenomenal! I have heard that if you walk all the way up to Laguna de los Tres during the night you could watch the sun rising and the mountains turning red and orange during the process. You can imagine that my little wanderlost spirit got eager to experience that!

    Before Quarantine

    Before Quarantine

    In the months before quarantine, I traveled to Peru with my family. I used to live in Peru, and I’ve often acted as a guide to Machu Picchu. The last time I went, I met up with one of my high school friends and his family. I hadn’t seen him for about ten years, and it was wonderful to have the chance to catch up and see how our lives have changed, and how they’ve stayed the same.

    There are no Lions in the Jungle

    There are no Lions in the Jungle

    The jungle. Although there are many accounts available telling you what it is like and you have done all the research possible so you think you are prepared for it, you are not. Nowhere does it say that you should take two pairs of wellies because your first pair will be destroyed within the first week, or that you should remember to take nail clippers, or that there is no non-deet insect repellent that actually works despite what the packaging might say. You may be well versed in the flora and fauna you are likely to encounter, but that feeling of excitment that threatens to brim over and scare away the Tyra that's just been spotted is never described. It is one thing to know that the jungle exists, quite another to have lived in it.

    To the End of the World

    During a pandemic, it’s easy to drown in my sorrow. I’ve dealt with depression and anxiety for the past twenty years, which makes the limited light fade to black rather quickly and heavily.

    6 Amazing South America Waterfalls Worth Your Visit

    6 Amazing South America Waterfalls Worth Your Visit

    If you have seen the heartwarming and heartbreaking animated movie “Up” from 2009, you must remember that Carl and Elie dreamed of living next to the Paradise falls in South America (It’s like America but south). The Paradise Falls was actually inspired by the real-life Angel Falls in Venezuela, which is even more marvelous than in the movie.
