Destination tips serve as a guide for a luxury vacation. The Hotel Tropical’s zoo, with 22 species, was smaller but fit into the eco-resort’s lush 400 square meters of foliage set on the banks of the Rio Negro. It, too, was a rescue facility certified by the Brazilian government. The resident biologist, Dayse Campista, and her co-worker, Andre, very kindly spent substantial time with me so that I could learn more about the unique rainforest inhabitants. They included an endangered White Bellied Spider Monkey, Nina. A true celebrity she starred as Zuzu in a feature film, Taina 2 an Adventure in the Amazon. As a new mother, Nina very cautiously hid her young baby underneath her paws to protect it from visitors’ intruding eyes. I was delighted when Dayse was able to coax Nina into showing off her new, as yet unnamed, offspring. I was intrigued also by the Collared Peccaries. Like miniature Wild Boars, they reminded me of my time as a German exchange student watching “Hans” and “Sissy”, a full-size version, run around the local castle moat.

There’s so much you can learn while traveling. I love visiting historic sites. Too bad it was so hot but looks like you persevered. One of the things that we do best is travel, seeing as much as the United States as possible. This road trip was to visit family in Missouri but there are many things to see along the way. Since this is a RocketMom challenge as an about me lens, it seemed appropriate to use the latest road travel insurance trip to share more about me and what was learned on this trip taken from June 30, 2011 to July 21, 2011. Hosteling was once thought of as the exclusive province of college kids traveling through Europe for the first time. However, hosteling has grow to include all ages, and all types of people. When traveling on a budget, staying at a hostel can be a great experience for the traveler with a sense of adventure.

In addition to the Rim Drive, you can experience a 2-hour guided tour of Crater Lake by boat. This will require you to hike down and back along Cleetwood Cove Trail to access the boat. A limited number of tickets each day will allow those who wish to disembark at Wizard Island for a 3-hour stay to allow hiking, fishing and swimming on the island, and then get picked up by a later boat. Retiree travel may require destinations you can drive too that may be only a 1,2 or 3, day drive. Retiree travel requires some fore thought. If traveling abroad, use your credit card vs. debit card for exchange rates Be flexible. If you don’t leave some wiggle room in your itinerary, you may not find a great retiree travel deal.
