I have been on the fast track of travel the past ten years, there is so much I want to see and experience. I was asked by a family member if I felt “the clock was ticking?” The Global Pandemic has paused my traveling for the time being but “Not now does not mean, not ever”. My travel is not a contest but 112 countries, 7 continents and counting!
Now Back to the story of how we met this amazing lady. To say the least Barbara’s trip to our new destination Labirinto Da Tartaruga was a success. We spent the week touring creek channels, tributaries and lagoons searching for anything we could take a picture of. Toucans, Macaws, 4-foot-tall Wood Storks and Rosiet Spoon Bills were among the areas amazing birds. A giant ant eater, a rare Mata-Mata turtle, river otters and on the last day of the trip, finally a Jaguar. Barbara also got introduced to the fishing world on her trip and caught several species including a huge Peacock Bass and her first ever fish on a fly rod. Barbara’s enthusiasm rubbed off on her new friend Francisco, who lives and helps protect the Labirinto and was the perfect guide and host for Barbara’s week with us.
Barbara will forever be one of our favorite guests to journey with us on some of our crazy adventures and we are hoping we will once again be able to twist her arm to join us. Her expertise in photography and her drive to see what’s around the next corner makes Barbara a true Bucket List Adventurer. Thanks for everything Barbara – Until next time…
