Travel Tales: Puerto Maldonado, Peru

While studying abroad in the Amazon Rainforest of Puerto Maldonado, Peru, I called Posada Amazonas home for four days. This tropical rainforest lodge was completely open to the surrounding ecosystem, which allowed guests to become one with the wildlife and natural wonders of the Amazon. As you can see from the photo above, our bedrooms also exposed us to the lovely oasis during our down time. My stay in Puerto Maldonado included daytime and nighttime hikes throughout the rainforest, trips to the local medicine garden, and a climb up the 120 ft. canopy tower that overlooked the Amazon. If you are a person that loves adventure and nature, I would highly recommend travelling to Puerto Maldonado, Peru!  

Below are additional pictures of the communal spaces at the lodge, as well as pictures of the  120 ft. canopy tower that I mentioned above.

Travel Tales: Overview

I've been quite the travel bug in my 24 years of living. While most of my travel experiences have been within the boundaries of the United States to cities such as Miami, Las Vegas, and New York City, other experiences have allowed me to travel abroad to different countries such as South Africa, Bermuda, Peru, and the Bahamas. What I like most about travelling is that I not only get to learn about a different location, but I also get the opportunity to learn more about myself (and I learned a whole lot about myself while staying in the Peruvian Amazon for 4 days). With this blog, I look forward to sharing with you the many exciting adventures that I've had while travelling. I'll be sure to include pictures if digital copies of the trip are still available on my laptop or IPhone! Please revisit my blog to read more about the adventures of a young traveler.
