'Letters From The Amazon' Audio Book story latest episode!




Episode Five - Finding Miss Piggy
'Letter's from the Amazon'   This amusing and enlightening story is told in in six short audio episodes. 
In this latest instalment of Sal's exotic South American adventure, we find ourselves following the pages of her journal notes during her isolation in Ecuador's remote deepest darkest Amazon Rainforest for well over a month later.
Having been initially enchanted by the whirlwind of the jungles bewitching charm, she soon begins to feel the over whelming effects of 'jungle fever', the realism of wild seclusion in a foreign community and the occasional crippling pangs of alienation and looming loneliness....
Until one day, a curly tailed friend is about to turn her world upside down.....a piglet.
 Armed with a $50 note and a new found spring in her step, Sal embarks on a road trip adventure with native ranger Sergio to the local jungle town of Tena in search of a little 'chanchita' as a new addition to the Jatun Sacha reserve. Failing to find one at the market, they begin tenaciously scouring the dusty back streets of Tena searching for clues -  sending them in hot pursuit of 'Senor Rodriguez' to the neighbouring town of Cotundo in their quest of finding Miss Piggy...

Meeting The Amazon Man - Alan Holman - The Record Breaking Kayak Down The Amazon

Ahh life....row row row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.....not for this guy it wasn't....and it certainly wasn't a stream.....

Last week, I met an incredible Guinness World Record Holder.....my first one too!

Now at 68, British man Alan Holman who in 1982 at the age of 38, is the first and only man on record that has ever kayaked the entire length of the 4,000 mile long Amazon River, you know what he said to me...

'Young lady, nothing ...is 100% impossible, but  
                  nothing is 100% sure'

                            awww.
