    Sylvester 2018

    December 31, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

    Zuerst ein kleiner "Empfang" und ein Zuprosten mit allen aus unserem Bed and Breakfast und dann mit allen zum Strand - natürlich möglichst in weiß!
    Dort waren schon große Kreuzfahrtschiffe in Position gebracht. 2 Stunden vor Mitternacht waren wir am Strand, der immer voller wurde - und die Vorfreude stieg!
    Und dieses Feuerwerk ist auch einfach nur einmalig schön gewesen! Es hat sich gelohnt! FROHES NEUES JAHR 2019!

    Rio de Janeiro

    March 28, 2018 in Brazil ⋅

    30 Grad, Sonne, Caipirinhas, Copacabana, Fußball und Sightseeing! So einfach lässt sich unser Aufenthalt in Rio beschreiben! 😎

    Wir hatten unglaublich viel Spaß und haben die Stadt in vollen Zügen genossen. Mit einem Helikopterrundflug haben wir die Stadt von oben erkundet, waren an der Christusstatue, im botanischen Garten, am Hafen, auf dem Zuckerhut, an den berühmten Treppenstufen von Santa Teresa, auf einem Fußballspiel im Maracanã Stadion (wo wir 2016 Weltmeister wurden 😉) und natürlich an den legendären Stränden von Ipanema und Copacabana.

    Und eins steht fest: Die Caipis hier sind einfach unschlagbar!😉

    Rio- Copacabana

    February 21, 2017 in Brazil ⋅

    Today didn't start brilliantly, with being left behind on the platform of the Metro underground system. Sara 0-1 Rio's transport system. First attempt: James got on the train and the doors slammed shut on me, and I watched as James disappeared into the distance. A few minutes of panic before James came back on the opposite train. He will tell you he was on the right train. It wasn't direct like the one I wanted but it did go in the right direction! I'll call it a truce.

    Once succesfully in Cococabana the beach was beautiful with white sand and clear blue sea stretching between the granite hills. We sat and had a few beers before walking along the waters edge, which was gloriously cold compared to the blazing heat. We went on to the botannical gardens which were beautiful just not for us.

    The carnival spirit is starting with the streets a bit busier and people dressing up. Tried a Caipirihina a sour drink with a kick, I think many more will follow.

    Day 124: We go to Rio, de Janeiro

    November 21, 2016 in Brazil ⋅

    What a differences with Buenos Aires: It's the opposite of flat and I mean the extreme steep hills are everywhere, there are many beaches, people speak portugese (and less English), it's much less safe and it has one of the 7 new world wonders yeah 😆. The conclusion what I liked the most? Will follow in the end of the whole trip 😉.
    I arrived around 1300 and tried to figure out how to get to Copacabana and after asking directions with one bus company and an other. I took the cab since it was only 70 Reals and had wifi saved me the stopping over at 3 places where I needed to figure out everything again. Way earlier than expected and I didn't know what to do and that's not like me. So I used some back up to get me going and actually had a good time relaxing and walking on the beach. Had a very small diner on the beach which is even more expensive than a luxurious restaurant and did my almost daily workout 😆. I ended the night with a beer on the rooftop bar and updated my social life before sleeping. Night night 😉.

    Killing Time

    January 7, 2018 in Brazil ⋅

    We never actually intended to stay this long in Rio. It just so happened that flights on the 10th to BA (and only on the 10th) were 60% cheaper than any other day. The 'easy' sights having been exhausted, we will have to be more creative in our amusements. Or just hit the local bars again.

    Wandered up to the Forte Ducque today, an old howitzer installation near our hostel. Big guns and nice views.

    Louis and I are looking to travel for a day-trip to some palace north of here. Can't remember the name and he's not here to tell me. It's an hour-long bus ride (which could well turn into 2-3 hours) but looks worth it. They have a big crown there, used formerly by the royal family.

    If I keep writing, it'll really just be filler fluff so I'll sign off. Hopefully more to write on tomorrow (a local gang war or something).

    Pics: (1) Louis looking at something more interesting; (2) Monkeys fighting over a banana; (3) Eyob in an art gallery.

    Santa Teresa

    March 1, 2017 in Brazil ⋅

    Cet apres midi nous sommes allé nous balader dans le cartier bohème de Santa Teresa. C'est vraiment un endroit de Rio hyper sympa où nous nous verrions bien habité si on devait rester dans cette ville. Les ruelles et les bougainvilliers nous ont un peu rappelé la Crête.
    Les carreaux de céramique et les montées raides peuvent aussi rappeler le cartier de l'Alfama de Lisbone.Read more

    Blocos du matin

    February 27, 2017 in Brazil ⋅

    Partage de quelques photos du Blocos d'hier matin :)
    Nous nous sommes quand même levé a 6h du matin pour nous déguiser et aller danser la samba avec Sandra et Bruno. Ambiance du tonnerre et déguisement de folie étaient au rendez vous ;)

    Sambodromo carnaval parade

    February 27, 2017 in Brazil ⋅

    Lundi soir nous sommes allé voir le plus beau show du monde: la parade des écoles de Samba du carnaval de Rio. C'était absolument grandiose! Tous les chars étaient plus beaux les uns que les autres, les danseurs et danseuses étaient superbes, l'ambiance étaient au rendez vous, bref ce n'était que du bonheur! Nous avons tenu le coup de 21h a 6h30 du matin au rythme de la samba 😉Read more

    Corcovado

    March 2, 2017 in Brazil ⋅

    Ce matin nous sommes allé voir la statue du Christ Rédempteur dominant la ville de Rio de Janeiro au Brésil, du haut du mont du Corcovado.
    Pour la petite histoire elle fut conçue par l'ingénieur brésilien Heitor da Silva Costa et réalisée par le sculpteur français Paul Landowski et le sculpteur roumain Gheorghe Leonida (pour la tête du Christ) et érigée en collaboration avec l'ingénieur français Albert Caquot.
    Malgrès le monde c'était tout de même très impressionnant et nous ne lassons pas de dècouvrir toujours plus de panorama sur Rio.
