Cruising the Amazon River

For my 50th birthday, Bruce and I embarked on a river cruise down the Amazon. We started in Iquitos, Peru, visited Colombia, and ended up in Manaus, Brazil. Throughout the trip we stopped at little villages along the Amazon, meeting the locals and doing some exploring. The trip was wonderful; I couldn’t have imagined a better way to spend my 50th!

Here, people are disembarking the ship to explore a local village.

The sunsets we experienced were absolutely amazing on this trip. Bruce and I enjoyed this colourful sunset from the deck of the ship.

Have you ever visited the Amazon? What were the highlights of your trip?
