I have a thing about luggage. From carry-on to hold luggage from backpacks and wheeled duffels to hard-shell suitcases and day packs. In my cupboard I have packs within, wheelie bags within duffels within suitcases – the luggage version of Russian dolls. I’ve tried them all. But now that I’ve found the perfect backpack in the Osprey Farpoint I’ll be getting rid of a pile of old rucksacks and sticking to this one.

How to avoid Mosquito Bites in the Amazon Jungle

The Yarapa River, Peru

How to avoid mosquito bites on my travels has always been an issue but never more so than on our trip to the Amazon Jungle. We’d booked our flights to Peru and our stay at Treehouse Lodge, deep in the jungle, was confirmed. It was time to get very excited. I love adventure and staying in a treehouse in the Peruvian Jungle ticked a box right up there on my travel wish list.

Then the realisation kicked in that we’d be staying in a high-risk malaria zone and mozzies see me as one big moveable feast. Did I get ravaged by mosquitos? No. Here’s what I did to avoid mosquito bites in the Amazon Jungle.
