Goodbye Rio

June 4, 2015

The last post takes the most time, with us being back home and at work, never getting around to write it. After a couple of relaxing days on Ilha Grande, we are now back in Rio. Our last stop before flying back home. We decide to give the Pão de Açúcar another chance to see […]

Lençois Maranhenses scenic flight

May 14, 2015

On our last evening, Jeff from Fly Ava takes us up in the air for a thirty minutes scenic flight. It’s an amazing way to see the dunes, only now we realize how big the area is and how much is currently filled with water. Jeff upgraded us to the bigger plane, a seven seater […]

On our second day, we take a boat tour down the Rio Preguiças, between jungle, mangroves and dunes, to the ocean beach at Caburé at the river mouth. The tour is nice and if we had learned some Portuguese ahead, we would now know a lot about palm trees, the different types of palm trees, […]

Lençois Maranhenses part1

May 12, 2015

Next we travel further up north, to the dunes of Lençois Maranhenses.

From March to September the dunes are partnered by thousands of crystal-clear, freshwater […]

Taking the hop-on/hop-off plane to Cuiabá with no less than three stops along the way. Arriving in the Pantanal, it still rains and we see only a few […]

Iguaçu the wet one

May 4, 2015

So it is true what all the travel books say, you will get wet at the falls… so much rain, the only difference during the day is that from time to time it rains even more. While our ponchos keep us dry and get jealous views all around, our shoes don’t. Still, we are here […]

Iguaçu Falls

May 3, 2015

The Iguaçu Falls are located on the border of Argentina and Brazil and consist of approximately 275 individual falls over 2.7 km. Not that we counted them ourselves – too busy looking at them – but many they are. And stunning! After an early morning in Rio – jet lag, and a very early breakfast thanks […]

Rio de Janeiro

As described by LP, Rio really is the Cidade Maravilhosa! Planted between lush, forest-covered mountains and breathtaking beaches, the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City) has many charms at her disposal. We love it. The busy beach of Copacabana, where everyone is keeping active. Running, biking, surfing or using the outdoor gym. Latest at lunch we realize […]
