Even waiting to be rescued from the unrelenting insects, the night spent under the stars in the rainforest proved to be a great adventure; the reason I signed on. The experience of being sucked into quicksand and keeping my cool taught me something about myself...I'll have a great story to tell!
I wanted to experience a pristine Amazonian rainforest before it falls to ruin; before the trees and animals are gone, and yes, before the mosquitoes are sprayed to extinction. Adventure Life Journeys provided it in Ecuador and I really wasn't ready to leave. I admit that I have a passion to see the world and I believe that a dollar spent on travel is never wasted.
