Jungle

When we think of jungles we almost always think of Africa, particularly the Congo, or perhaps the Amazon. These are huge stretches of forest and extraordinarily dangerous. From poisonous plants to reptiles, and big predators, natural pit falls, they house a host of 'i'm going to die moments.' Even the weather can be tough. Torrential downpours, flash floods, burning heat that sucks the moisture from your body, all these add to joy of the jungle.

Now, throw in a few ancient ruins, covered in dead fall or strangled by giant trees and vines. Look beyond, into the darkness left hollow by the dying fall of long forgotten inhabitants.

And what do you have?

Adventure.
