On planet Earth, there’s a sweet spot. Let me talk you through it.
You see, personally, I only need to head to the supermarket and attempt to reach the dried figs on the top shelf to get a perspective on how small I am compared to the world, but there are some places out there, which truly make you feel like an ant.
A teeny tiny little thing that could be washed away in a second. Somehow, experiencing this ant-like state is miraculously liberating: it’s like you are forced to just sit, look and admire with a loving envy at how grand other things are.
Other things like great waterfalls, or more specifically, the Iguassu Falls. A few days ago I truly grasped the said ant-life whilst in Brazil, and this is my story.
I was in Caipirinha Heaven.
It’s a cocktail, it’s strong, and Brazil is literally crawling with them.
Drinking these bad boys is basically a National Standard around this part of the world, so if you choose to visit, you better be Caipirinha-ready for a Caipirinha-good time!
I was basically Jane from Tarzan.
I swear I saw Tarzan a few times, that’s all I’m saying.
But seriously, there are rainbow coloured butterflies flitting around, flirty Macaws who say ‘Adios’ and cheeky little monkeys who literally convince you to pick them up, put them in your pocket, save them for a rainy day and become best friends.
But to really fire up your jungle experience, you should definitely dress like Bindi Irwin, pick a bite-size banana fresh from the bunch on the side of the pathway, carry a walky-talky and climb a Palm Tree to drink your Coconut Water fresh from the source!
Okay maybe don’t try that last one at home, Palm Trees can be really high. But you get the gist: the Jungles are legit!
I abused Watermelon Juice on tap.
Yes, you read right: on tap.
I love you, Breakfast Juice Bar!
I saw ‘those’ Falls.
This isn’t a class on the many ‘Wonders of the World’ so I wont go overboard in explaining just how amazing the Iguassu Falls are, but just so you know, they are kind of a big deal.
A Go-Pro and genuine desire to get completely drenched are necessary.
If you too, have ever felt like a cast member from ‘A Bug’s Life’, share your story, we are all friends here.
Love Sheona. xo
