I have a bad memory so I want to keep a “Travel History” of all of the places I’ve gone as an adult.

I have vague plans to dig up my photos and journal notes from my past travels so that eventually I can write short posts about each of the countries I’ve visited!

  1. Hi! Would you be willing to share a bit about your trip to Canaima and Angel Falls? I’m looking into it, but struggling to find information about how to get to Ciudad Bolivar because I can’t find flight information anywhere!


    • Hello! I booked my trip with a tour agency and so did everyone else I know. If you are outside of Venezuela get yourself to the Caracas Airport (CCS) and there are travel agencies you can book with in the airport. I used the Giorgio’s Agency (maybe “Agencia de Giorgios”) and they book my friend and I an all-inclusive hotel+flights+transportation deal (no alcohol though). The wonderful hotel I stayed at (comfy beds, hot water, electricity, amazing food) is called Ucaima (http://junglerudy.com/). Perhaps if you speak with them they could help you out. The rout I took was Caracas-Puerto Ordaz-Canaima (the last stretch was in a tiny chartered plane that wouldn’t show up on search engines). Good luck!
