Nov 8, 2017 - Bonito

What a fabulous start to our visit to the beautiful town of Bonito - a giant anteater sighting on our way into town. We stopped down a little dirt road to get out, and being perfectly downwind of the anteater, managed to walk really close and have a great view of him foraging for ants and termites. Such a gorgeous animal!! We all loved every minute of the famous Bonito fish float - snorkelling down a crystal clear river, with fish all around. Hanna described the experience perfectly as "magical" and "like being in another world". Another...

Nov 3, 2017 - Amolar mountains

We came to a halt at the Amolar mountains where we were staying for a night. We expected it to be a lodge but it turned out to be a local house with cattle, horses and the cutest little foal. We were shown to our room which had 2 bunk beds for the 4 of us, and a bathroom. Then we had a lunch of spaghetti, cabbage and tomatoes. After a nice hot lunch we went outside, sat under a tree and read a book. 3:00 came and we went to see the giant lillies that are about a meter long. It was very hot so we had a swim in the middle of the river....

Feb 23, 2013 - Checkpoint #1 - Corumba

This post is just a checkpoint so that our map will show where we've been. Apparently you can't have multiple map points in an entry. Through our travels we've realized Canadians are just about the friendliest and most polite people you can hope to meet. Here's a joke we've been telling when we meet fellow Canucks. How do you make a Canadian apologize? Step on his foot! Sorry for the fake entry, the next one will have Corumba and Santa Cruz included :)

Sep 4, 2012 - Bonito

Nous pensions tout d'abord chercher une agence pour aller dans le Pantanal depuis Campo Grande. Malheureusement, il n'y a pas moyen d'y aller par nous-même car il n'y a pas de bus et toute la forêt appartient à des fermes. Mais, Fellipe et sa famille nous ont conseillé d'aller tout d'abord à Bonito et de voir depuis là pour le Pantanal. C'est ce que nous avons fait et cette fois c'était une bonne décision :-). Bonito est la capitale de l'écotourisme au Brésil. A ces alentours, il y a de nombreuses rivières avec de l'eau cristalline et plein...

Sep 2, 2012 - Campo Grande

Nous voici à notre première étape au Brésil : Campo Grande. Mais avant d'y arriver, nous avons encore vécu notre dernière surprise paraguayenne. En achetant le ticket à Concepción, la vendeuse nous a avertie que nous devions changer de bus à Pedro Juan Caballero, la ville frontière. Par contre, elle a oublié de nous indiquer que nous devions passer nous-même à la douane paraguayenne pour faire tamponner notre passeport pour la sortie, puis à la brésilienne pour l'entrée. Nous ne nous en sommes pas doutés, car jusqu'à présent, les formalités...

Aug 28, 2012 - Corumba

Final day in Brazil. it is well and truely time to get out of here while we can still button our pants over our boldging bellies. We were hoping for a big night for our final night here but Corumba had other options so we had a couple of beers and a pizza and called it a night. Caught bus to boarder and lined up for about three hours. just scrapped in before they closed for a three hour lunch. hooked up with a couple of germans, grabbed a taxi and headed into boliva, to Quajjaro to be precise. whats there....fuck all. bought a train...

Aug 20, 2012 - Campo Grande and Coxim

Hi Guys, Well we made it to Campo Grande and have mangaged to track down most of my friends, Honk (or as they like to call him here, Arnold or Geraldo hahaha) is fitting right in. He is a great success here even though he can't speak much portugese...I'm not as interesting now as this is my third time..I'm old news! We have travelled about three hours out of the city to visit other friends who took us on a boat ride and a swim in the river..I made sure not to be first or last as I didn't want to be somethings dinner, but they tell me not to...

Mar 20, 2012 - Campo Grande & ATMs

So we are accosted at the bus terminal (none of which have names on, so it is pot luck you got off at the right stop) by two hostel touts. Craig insists we go with the same company that he went with before (Ecological Expeditions), I am dubious and still take a flyer from the smarter Santa Clara outfit but Craig again says "honestly they were great last time". We arrive at the hostel and then try to barter the tout down - "but you are rich British on holiday", err no we are backpackers probably living on less than you are! He tells Craig...

Oct 31, 2011 - The Pantanal

Hi All, I´ve spent the last few days in The Pantanal, the worlds largest wetland and the best place to see wildlife. I spent 3 nights/four days in a lodge there, where we did activities such as Pirahna fishing (I caught 2 pirahnas and 2 other fish), tubing down the river (scariest moment being when we saw a caiman - alligator - get into the river just as we were about to get in!!), boat rides, jungle walks, horse-riding and a jeep safari. The two night boats were the best though - especially when the guide switched off the engine and torch...

Oct 25, 2011 - Bonito

Hiya! I have spent the last few days in a small city called Bonito, where there is the opportunity to do loads of activities - although I have limited myself to the 2 most important. On my first day I visited the Blue Cave, so called due to the clear blue lake at the bottom. It was very beautiful and lit only by the sunlight going into the cave. Yesterday was a longer day and the morning was spent at a bird sanctuary with loads of macaws and even some toucans flying round the reserve. The afternoon, however, was the highlight of the trip....
