One last hour at the beachApril 13, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 24 °C
My boat back to the mainland was scheduled for 1 p.m., which gave me enough time to chill at Praia Julia, one of the breaches that are in walking distance from the village of Vila Abraão.
Although I would have loved to have some more hours on Ilha Grande and maybe visit the famous Lopes Mendes beach, I was glad I planned in some buffer time: the boat left half an hour late (but I'm almost sure that they just tell everyone the wrong time to make sure they'd be punctual). On the other side we were picked up by a van that, halfway to Rio, broke a tyre. An hour later we could continue driving, but the break for that changed tyre didn't work anymore, so that we went on very limited speed. When we finally got close to the airport, we got stuck in traffic until we changed into another van - 5 minutes before arrival. At least my 5h expected waiting time at the airport was that way reduced to only 3h 😁Read more
