My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

This morning we were transferred to Cuzco Airport for our domestic flight. We boarded the 07:25 flight LA2010 to Lima. Arrived in Lima at 09:00 and transited for almost 3 hours before we boarded the 12:35 flight LA2443 to Foz De Iguazu. Arrived Foz De Iguazu about 19:30. Our guide Mr. Marcus and the driver were already waiting for us.

This morning we travelled to Puerto Iguazu to visit Iguazu National Park on the Argentina side. Border crossing was simple. We waited in the bus while the guide arranged for the stamping of passports. We could view the Iguazu Falls, one of the wonders of the world, bordering two countries, Brazil and Argentina.

The Iguaçu National Park is a World Heritage property located in the State of Paraná, in southern Brazil, adjacent to the Iguazú National Park, also a World Heritage property in Argentina. Both properties, together with some protected areas, are contiguous major remnants of the interior Atlantic Forest, once a much larger forest area, along the junction of the Iguaçu and Paraná rivers where Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil converge. We explored the Lower and Upper Circuit from a few panoramic viewpoints.

(The Devil's Throat)

We had to board the Eco-train to The Devil's Throat, the highest point of the water falls. Even though it was raining very heavily and the water was murky like ‘teh tarik’, it is very deserving of the title, the biggest waterfalls in the world.

We also visited Iguazu National Park on the Brazil side. Border crossing here was even simpler. We walked along the Cataratas Trail with a good view of the magnificent waterfalls. It was raining intermittently and we were soaked to the skin at the end of the tour. 

We overnight in Foz De Iguazu Wish Resort Hotel, Brazil.
