    Kalpana, as she calls herself, is a travel writer and expert in Japanese who believes in serendipity and the power of a hug.

    In the quiet routine of her cruise, Kalpana found moments to explore the jungle and really delve into it—– as well as to enjoy moments to simply relax and enjoy the view.

    The diversity of species that inhabits the immense Amazon, both flora and fauna, even surprised an experienced traveler.

    As she herself says in her story: ¨I wish it were possible to bottle up the peace that the wonderful Amazon transmits to accompany us always in our day to day life¨

    Shikha Shah: Wildlife and indigenous cultures in the Peruvian Amazon

    Shikha, journalist, travel blogger, free soul and romantic idealist —-as she describes herself— went into the heart of the Amazon aboard El Zafiro, and later shared her experience in The Economic Times.

    The magic of living the Amazon, for Shikha, appeared at the same moment she was able to admire the largest river in the world while flying over the jungle, from the heights of the plane that would take her to her destination.

    The views not only made her trip a unique experience, but also the explosion of life that inhabits the Amazon was the most moving detail of her adventure; wild and exotic animal and plant species and— beyond them—-native communities living in full contact with nature.

    The connection with the Amazonian culture, the discovery of its delicious gastronomy and, of course, the surprising wildlife all around her that she admired, made of its trip an experience that would change her infinitely.

    As she shares in her article: “there are many things that you take from the Amazon, most of them intangible and, even so, unforgettable.”

    Discover the inspiring experience of Shikha here, a beautiful way to learn a little more about the magnificent Amazon!
