    We have been invited out today on the boat, the housekeepers prepare all the meat and drinks and we set off to the Marina. As the boat pulls in I cant beleive my eyes , its a huge speedboat with a 3 berth jetski attached to the back. Everything is loaded onto the boat and we set off. We head out of the marina and do a tour off the small beaches before anchoring off. The bbq is attached and the beers are passed around , before the boys set off on the jet ski. The huge wireless speaker is connected and we now have a rock boat, tke brazillan funk is pumping out so loud my heart is banging to the beat. We dance eat and frolick in the sea and I honestly don't have a care in the world. Mark is offered a go on the jetski and before i can blink he is off . I decide to have a try at the paddle board which is a lot harder than it looks but without blowing my own trumpet I'm quite good at until i need to turn around. I spend minutes paddling to one side but am still going straight, I panic a little as at this rate ill be in Rio de Janeiro before i'd planned. I try paddling on the other side and for some unknown reson this works and i'm heading back to the boat. Bruno(the owner of the paddle board is fantastic on it , doing head stands etc and later in the day comes back from the beach with strawberry Caiprinhas . Food off the bbq is cooked all day and we drink more and soak up the atmosphere. It has not stopped raining here but as we head back to shore Mark and I are both sunburnt. We grab a quick shower and its time to head back to Campos to collect our books. A 3 hour drive and we book into a hotel, after all the sea air and only having had 3 hours sleep I sleep like a baby .Read more

    Cabo Frio

    January 20, 2016 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    A five hour bus journey bringsus to Cabo Frio where we get a taxi to our first hostel. This part of the journey is quite daunting for me as its the first time we are on our own. The hostel is really quite impressive and Leonardo (the owner) speaks really good English(with the aid of google) How did anyone get by without the Inernet ?? We make our own beds and grab a shower(warmish) before heading out for a bite to eat. It is raining lions and rotweillers . We borrow an umbrealla from the hostel and only walk 10 mins down the street , making a hasty entrance to the nearest bar/ cafe where we order a crepe delicious. For the first time since being here I am cold so a quick dash back to the hostel for a warm shower. Downstairs Leonardo is playing the guitar so we sit with him and he offers us to play a video game the most basic version of Mario I have seen. Its like the Atari set I had when I was a kid. We retire to bed early as we will leave tomorrow but honestly wish we could stay for a few more days.Read more

    Arrail do cabo - Départ de la ferme

    May 28, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Au réveil ce matin c’est crêpe partie, Matthieu aurait t’il quelque chose à se faire pardonner ? Je plaisante, nous y avons droit depuis 3 jours, avec du nutella à plus savoir qu'en faire, miam ! Une fois repus, croyez le ou non mais c’est un des moments les plus incroyables du séjour, si ce n’est le plus incroyable ! Romain s’est enfin décidé à se raser le crâne. Ce moment ne se reproduira sûrement pas une deuxième fois dans sa vie, donc nous profitons de l’occasion pour faire un canular à ceux restés en métropole. Nous théâtralisons le fait que Matthieu et Pierre me rasent la tête en vengeance d’un saut d’eau que je leur aurais hypothétiquement jeté ! Nous prenons un malin plaisir à jouer la scène et la vidéo fait mouche sur facebook, les gens sont tous tombés dans le panneau.Read more

    Road to nowhere

    January 20, 2016 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    After 3 days without internet the morning is spent catching up on my blog. We still do not have a phone so we walk to the place that the Claudio in Miracema has arranged for us to get the phone unblocked. I ask for the guy but he doesnt speak a word of english and doesnt have a recollection of talking to Claudio so we give up and head into the VIVO store. Thank god for google translate we are able to purchase a small phone and use it to arrange to meet Bruno at his house at midday. we have to get a taxi to Brunos as it is about 5 miles from the hotel . The house is in a complex and there is a security gate where they buzz through to the flat to make sure they are expecting us, even though there is no answer(we are naware of this) the security guard tells them we are Americans and this seems to get us a pass as when we get to the flat there is noone in ???? We call Bruno and his brother but there is no answer and the taxi is gone. So our only plan of action is to walk . After one hour of walking in one direction there is nothing until we arrive at a main highway. We turn around and now walk two hours in the other direction where we find a small bar and eat a couple of savoury "pasties". We receive a text to say Bruno will be home at 5 so we atke a leisurely walk back and sit in the bar about 20 mins from the University. Its crazy here as Bruno has received a text from someone in the bar telling him that we are here, yet again we stick out like a sore thumb.We walk back to Brunos and meet him athe gate . His brother arrives home and we arrange to go for Pizza . In the restaurant they keep bringing out all different types of pizza at regular intervals and you choose which you want (eat as much as you like) just when i think i cant eat any more out comes the sweet pizza.
    We drop Bruno and Inacio back to the complex and carry on back to the hotel to plan our departure in the morning.
