I honestly feel giddy just typing the title of this article. I have been counting down the days for the amazing adventure that is now less than three weeks away. With all the craziness in the world, obsessing over and researching what to bring to the Amazon has been a wonderful distraction. Hopefully these tips will help the next crazy person headed deep into the jungle…
Wellington boots are essential (Check with your lodge as they may carry them)
Sandals with straps for evening dinners like these or if you are striving for a more fashionable solution like these
When it “feels like 99″ but you need to cover up because of critters and bugs this is a challenge!
-Opt for quick drying shirts and tanks (Cotton is breathable and light but takes forever to dry so avoid it)
– quick drying high socks
-A sun/rain hat combo is a great idea
–light-weight cargo type pants with moisture wicking technology and/or breathable athletic ones
-athletic shorts or skort
-Small collapsible binoculars (You don’t want to miss all the awesome wildlife!)
-head lamp (with extra batteries)
– small flashlight (with extra batteries)

Clearly I picked a hot and ultra rainy month to go to the jungle. Bring on a messy, muddy adventure! Pretty soon I will have a smile as big as this guy ;)….
