Lost in the Peruvian Jungle….


8:01 – The rainbow tree appears rather colorless. Just give it a month.

9:09 – Challenge accepted.

10:14 – The leaves crunch under my feet.

1:47 – Tree hurricane feels twisted. Only in the jungle.

12:02 -Once a home for Orapendula, now it’s empty.

1:36 – Even hunters rest, calculate and watch.

2:22 – We met this amazing family by the shore. They were in the middle of their lunch, so we didn’t interrupt. That would just be rude, after all.

3:07 – Geese on the lookout, to be fair, they are endangered.

4:32 – Arrived at our next, home. Home sweet home.

5:56 – Going separate ways is just a part of life.

6:40 – A night jungle walk challenges. New sounds to hear, camera flash shows what tree looks like in the dark.

8:10 – The hammocks are calling, the living sound of jungle life surrounds me.

Lainie Liberti is a recovering branding expert, who’s career once focused on creating campaigns for green - eco business, non-profits and conscious business. Dazzling clients with her high-energy designs for over 18 years, Lainie lent her artistic talents to businesses that matter.  But that was then.

In 2008, after the economy took a turn, Lainie decided to be the change (instead of a victim) and began the process of “lifestyle redesign,” a joint decision between both her and her 11-year-old son, Miro. They sold or gave away all of of their possessions in 2009 and began a life of travel, service, and exploration. Lainie and her son Miro began their open-ended adventure backpacking through Central and South America. They are slow traveling around the globe allowing inspiration to be their compass. The pair is most interested in exploring different cultures, contributing by serving, and connecting with humanity as ‘global citizens.’

Today Lainie considers herself a digital nomad who is living a location independent life. She and her son write and podcast their experiences from the road at Raising Miro on the Road of Life.
