Goofing around at the Iguazu Falls

A special guest post by Alex Lopoukhine.


The Iguassu Falls

Bloggers captivate their audiences through their photos, words, and video – and sometimes, bloggers get you to laugh. A lot. In June of this year, an international group of bloggers was flown down to Foz Do Iguaçu, Brazil for the very first EIBTUR Conference. Towards the end of the week, the majority of the Brazilian blogger contingent and the international bloggers had returned home – leaving Keith, Melvin and myself to go explore.

A candid moment

One of my core focuses on my blog The Minute Tour is showcasing experience through short videos from around the world. Usually these videos are edited and put together so they tell a story. I knew I was going to film something in Brazil, but without having a set storyboard, I essentially filmed the whole time I was there. While I filmed a lot of Beautiful Brazil, there was one candid moment that was too good to not share on its own.

Keith, Melvin, and I made our way to the Argentina side of the Iguazu Falls on our final day. It was one of the colder days, and after a week of a very active Brazilian experience, we were all a little slaphappy. Rarely… 1) do all of us manage to get in one video; 2) do our readers get to see us in pure goof form; and 3) do we see the Iguazu Falls with such ferocity, so here’s a treat just for you. Enjoy!

Note from Keith:

We were definitely in a goofy mood that day. Haha! How goofy? Check out our photos below:


I think I was simply blown away by the force of the Falls!


What is Melvin doing at the Devil’s Throat? You’ve got one guess! 🙂


Just so you know where we were! 😉

    Hard to say as both sides offer a different perspective. I always recommend visiting both sides.
