I can honestly say that one of the main things that have motivated me to travel to different parts of the world is documentaries that I have seen about these places. One of the places that I had always wanted to visit from the time that I was a little girl was Brazil. I remember watching a documentary about the Amazon River with my parents when I was 10 or 11 years old. I was absolutely fascinated by the Amazon River and I knew I wanted to go there. Not only was I impressed with the Amazon River itself, but I couldn’t believe the diversity of wildlife that lives in and around the river. I also thought that it would be amazing to see some of the Indian tribes that live on the river as well. Coming from a large city I thought that that life in the Amazon must be very rustic, but absolutely amazing.
It was not just one documentary about the country that motivated me to go there. I have watched many other documentaries about different places in Brazil. Not only was I fascinated with the Amazon River, but I was also very fascinated with Iguazu. So as I got older and started to save some money I realized that I would need more than a couple of days or weeks to spend in Brazil if I wanted to see everything there. I do not think that it is possible to see all the amazing sites in Brazil in one lifetime, but I decided that I would take three months to explore as much as I could. I was able to spend much of that time on the Amazon River. I was also able to visit the capital of Brazil and I finished my trip seeing parts of the Iguazu River and then the falls.
