Her Small Secret by @billsurf

"If I could travel back in time and do it over..." I said, gazing out the window like a dog awaiting an overdue master. I couldn't eat or sleep. Sometimes it felt like I could barely breathe. I'd screwed up and lost the woman I loved, now I couldn't get her out of my mind. Shareen's face floated ghostlike in front of me wherever I went, whatever I did. Those pixie-like features. Those penetrating green eyes. That cascade of sand-colored curly hair hanging about her shoulders. The curves of her...

Tristan, An Unexpected Visitor by @neiraurdaneta


From a distant planet, a being called Tristan observes millions of lights that are reflected on a planet called Earth, he has heard that strange underdeveloped creatures live there. The curiosity filled his being and like a magnet that draws him to that unknown planet, he decides to venture there...

Abduction by @betzaelcorvo


One beautiful night with many stars, Juan and Maria, decide to go to a place far from the city, to camp and be together with nature, the small camp is ready and the bonfire burned with a dazzling fire, sitting around the Campfire Juan took Maria's hands gently, while talking about his great love for her...

A night in mists by @marciabon


A long time ago I went to visit my grandparents' house. They lived in a very distant town. It was a large hacienda, as I recall. There were all kinds of trees and beyond the main house, deep in the hacienda, there was a very small house, it was in ruins. My cousins and I camped very close to there the times we went, but we were forbidden to go near the house...

Family adventure under the stars/Aventura de familia bajo las estrellas by @rosanita

In life we all need to take some time to share in isolated family a little bit of civilization and enjoy a little bit of nature, last year this was our first adventure in the forest in Yacambu National Park located in Lara State in the Andres Eloy Blanco Municipality it seemed like a dream the excitement of having our first children's camp for two days and enjoy under the stars but I could not enjoy it alone I wanted to go with my family until I convinced them to go to that beautiful camp and take two days of relaxing us with nature...

Camping in the Jungle by @librepensadora

This time, I will tell you about an Adventure in the Venezuelan jungle.

In April 2007, a group of friends took a trip to the Gran Sabana, in order to discover El Abismo, located in El Paují; a unique place in the world that you can appreciate from my next post.

To get to El Paují, we did a great tour. We start from Puerto Ordaz, pass towards San Félix, then Upata, Guasipati, El Callao (famous for the Gold mines and their extravagant Carnivals), Tumeremo, El Dorado, the Kilometer 88, and there we stopped at La Piedra de la Virgen. You can see part of this excursion in my next article.

We continue our journey, skirting San Francisco de Yuruani and arriving at Santa Elena de Uairén, on the border with Brazil. The journey from Puerto Ordaz to Santa Elena is 9 hours...

Will we find peace far from the world? by @jennyzer

We live with cement and more cement, getting away from daily life, stress and the hustle and bustle of work, surrounding ourselves with nature will allow us to think clearly.

Being in a quiet environment is already synonymous with feeling good, it renews our spirit, we just need to breathe a little of that pure oxygen characteristic of forests, so that peace can take hold of us...

Un campamento cambió mi vida. by @mllg

Yo prefería una disco, salidas a comer o fiestas alrededor de una piscina. Los campamentos no me llamaban la atención, pero por cosas de la vida (un desengaño amoroso) y por influencia de una amiga me anoté en uno. Salimos justo el viernes antes de declararse la cuarentena, éramos 12, 6 y 6. Rebeca se creía Cupido y, además, aprovechaba para compartir con Sergio, su pareja, lejos de sus padres. La noticia de la cuarentena no nos llegó. No había cobertura de internet en la zona. La idea era disfrutar la naturaleza con un mínimo de tecnología. La estadía, una semana...

Meeting with the Forest Fairies by @mafalda2018

The starry sky made the night beautiful. You could hear the sound of the cicadas. Beyond the light, the darkness was total. Marcos took me by the hand and led me to the nearby river. Holding his hand nervously so as not to fall, we walked a long way.

The darkness of the night and the little rays lit up the path. In the distance we could hear the sound of the waterfall. The rain threatened to fall and the cold grew more intense...

Camping in the woods... We tried! by @maeugenia


I must confess that camping terrifies me, sleeping in the middle of the forest in a tent surrounded by animals seems dangerous to me, not to mention the discomfort of sleeping in a sleeping bag inside a tent while listening to the noise of insects and being bitten by them...

Miracle in the enchanted woods by @zeleiracordero


I spent the last night of the end times that consumed an important part of life camping in a forest with my family.

When the pandemic began, we did not imagine that the apocalypse announced in the Scriptures had begun. At first, it seemed to be temporary, but as the years went by, instead of the number of deaths decreasing, the world's numbers were rising and where it was thought that they were being exceeded, they suddenly rebounded. The time came when there was no security of any kind. Everyone was getting infected, no matter what they did...
