With 275 separate waterfalls and 23 kilometres of foaming water, Iguassu Falls is about as spectacular as it gets.

Some of you may not know that there is actually more than one blog being written about this trip.
Since January, Brendan has been writing for a new travel website called Planet Eye, as their “Global Nomad.” The blog is a collection of travel tips, tricks and insights from an experienced traveller, and is completely free of pictures of Mel with flowers on her breasts.
One cool thing about Planet Eye is their mapping and geotagging technology, which is used in all website elements, from photos to reviews–all of it is placed on a clickable, zoomable world map, including any of our (particularly good) photos that have been uploaded to the site.
