Quiet! This Man on an Expensive Amazon Trip is Sleeping

If you are looking for a holiday that will melt the stress away consider taking on an Amazon adventure.

Sure, wading amid teems of wildlife doesn’t sound like something akin to a massage, but there are pictures to prove otherwise.

The Metro’s Alison Lynch (h/t The Telegraph) reports on a rather hilarious snooze fest that took place during what is heralded as a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

The images below were uploaded to Imgur by way of Reddit user Roxambops, who goes by the far more human name Roxy de la Rosa in daily life.

The pictures are that of her cousin, Alex Elenes, and they feature him sleeping during what is an otherwise Amazonian party.

Consider what De la Rosa has to say with “Our trip was to Iquitos, Peru, for a few days at the end of February, and cost around $1,600 (£1,000) just for the Amazon addition” and now look at these:

We are all for a good sleep, in fact we collect naps like we used to collect pogs. However, there is a mandate when going on a sightseeing vacation that you actually see the sights.

There are two types of holidays. One allows you to catch up on rest by the pool or along the beach.

But another demands that you get little sleep and take in all the landmarks and attractions your respective destination has to offer.

This, my friends, was the latter.

Lynch gives us a bit more of what the cousin had to say: “She adds that Alex was the one who ‘pushed for us to choose to go to the Amazon with him over Machu Picchu since he had already been there and wanted to see the jungle.’”

The best part is that this isn’t a case of extreme jetlag, because De la Rosa demands there was “no real reason to keep falling asleep.”

The poor fella just had a bad case of the sleepies during the worst time possible.

There is hardly a better feeling than submitting to heavy eyelids for an indeterminate amount of time. The only caveat is when you are missing out on expensive memories along the way.

The only good news here is that there seems to be a lot of pictures for Elenes to enjoy.
