In the far east of Russia lies the land of bears and volcanoes. That is the Kamchatka peninsula situated between the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Sea of Okhotsk to the west. The volcanoes of Kamchatka are UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland area that spreads across Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. We visited the Pantanal area of Brazil in August 2016. Sao Paolo to Cuiaba by flight and Cuiaba to Porto Joffre by safari 4×4 vehicle. In Pouso Alegre lodge we woke up to the singing and squeaking of at least ten varieties of birds. Here we also saw a giant anteater, tapir at night and lots of birds, mammals and reptiles. This post is composed of mainly photographs as they tell the story better than words…. Enjoy!
