    Day 2 & 3 - Florianopolis

    April 22, 2017 in Brazil

    Our second day in Florianopolis was dry but still pretty overcast so we took the ferry boat across the lake to a little fishing village. We visited a little waterfall and then mooched around the village before hopping back on the boat. There are lots of small villages along the lake, some of which have no access by road, so the boat acts as a taxi for the locals.

    The day before we had spotted this pretty yummy looking coffee bar so we decided to treat ourselves. They were a treat as these coffees were like no coffees you have ever had before. Simon chose a latte, but it was no ordinary latte. For starters it came in a giant wine glass on which Nutella was thickly spread around the glass. It also came with a side of another giant blob of Nutella on the end of a long spoon! I opted for the coffee milkshake which was made up of coffee, milk, ice cream and chocolate sauce. They were both a taste sensation! And needless to say we felt a bit sick afterwards but they were totally worth it.

    Then just as we thought our day couldn't get any better we made another amazing discovery. Let me set the scene a little bit for you first. Supermarkets in Brazil are rubbish! They are quite small, don't really have much in them and the limited fruit and veg they do have is a bit manky. And don't even get Simon started on the meat. It looks disgusting, smells worse and more often than not can be found accompanied by flies. You can therefore imagine our delight when we stumbled upon a decent supermarket that actually half resembled a supermarket back home. The shelves were full of things you would actually want to buy and there was a plethora of fresh fruit and vegetables. There was also mince and fresh chicken breasts (not frozen like every other supermarket). We actually felt like kids at Christmas discovering a stocking full of presents at the end of our beds!

    Today we awoke to sunshine streaming through the windows and Simon waking me up for a change, excited to go to the beach. We went to a beach called Mole beach (pronounced in the Austin Powers way). What Brazil lacks in supermarkets, it sure makes up for in beaches.

    Einmal um die Südhalbinsel

    November 29, 2017 in Brazil

    Einen ersten Vorgeschmack hatte ich bereits während eines Tagesausflugs nach Florianopolis mit den Abacate-Mädels inklusive Wiedertreffen meiner bolivianischen Freundin (mit schwedischem Pass) Camila, die ich Anfang Oktober in Salta, Argentinien kennen gelernt habe. Nun zieht es mich erneut auf die Großstadt-Insel. :)

    Auch diesmal widme ich meine Zeit hier überwiegend der Wanderung durch Dschungel, über Sanddünen, an Meer und Seen entlang: 20km rund um die Süd-Hälfte der Insel. 🌞🌴

    Mein Host, ein quirliger Typ, ausgezeichneter Koch und Tänzer, der mich zu Forro (im Nordosten verbreiteter Tanzstil) ausgeführt, sowie in die Musik- und Film Szene Brasiliens einführt hat. 😊 Forro wird mit Partner und zu Livemusik, typischerweise bestehend aus Akkordeon, Cajon (= Holzbox) und Triangel, getanzt. Im Grunde ist es einfach nur zwei Schritte rechts, zwei Schritte links, jedoch mit stark ausgelebter Improvisationsfreiheit ...die mich meine Sandale gekostet hat. 😂🙈

    Ungestört die Abendsonne bei Bier und Livemusik zwischen den Kneipen zu genießen scheint unmöglich. Fast jede 5 Minuten kommen Straßenverkäufer mit Erdnüssen und anderen Snacks an unseren Tisch und alle reden sie mit dir, auch wenn du gerade mitten in einer Unterhaltung steckst. 😅 Ich hatte hier meinen Glücksmoment! 🍀 Ein junger Typ mit einer Box voller Brigadeiros (brasilianische Schokopralinen) - etwa 10 verschiedene Sorten geschmackvoll präsentiert, daneben ein angeheftetes Smartphone mit geöffneter Glücksrad-App - bat mich nach abgelehntem Kauf nach einer Nummer zwischen 1 und...
    Ich hab schon "7" gesagt, bevor er seinen Satz zu Ende geführt hat 😂 und 7 war es dann auch. 🎀🍬 (Auch die Sorten habe ich ihn nicht zu Ende aufzählen lassen, nachdem das Wort "Wiskey" fiel. 🙈)

    Floripa

    November 10, 2017 in Brazil

    Olá meus queridos seguidores. Espero que se encontrem bem!

    Provavelmente só uma pessoa é que vai ler isto, Pips é o seu nome. Uma miuda muito gatinha, de chorar mesmo !! Só tenho um conselho para vos dar, meus fiéis seguidores, se um dia a virem, mantenham uma distância de segurança pois podem queimar-se, ela é fogo 😂

    Tive o prazer de a conhecer na Praia do Mole, a ela e às suas queridas amigas. De Floripa só tenho uma coisa a dizer, não sei se vocês vão gostar de ler o que aí vem, mas o que vou dizer deve-se muito a estas pessoas incríveis que conheci na praia. Aqui vai meus amigos, chega de rodeios ...

    Floripa, FLORIPA É DO CARALHO !!!

    O dia a seguir

    November 11, 2017 in Brazil

    Hoje o dia foi nostálgico, fico sempre triste com despedidas.

    Fui para a praia de Jurere com mais 3 pessoas do hostel. O tempo estava incrível, uma praia muito extensa mas o mar cobria quase todo o areal. Estendi a toalha e fui logo dar um pincho! A temperatura da água acompanhava o tempo que se fazia sentir no exterior o que resultou em grandes braçadas pelo mar.
    Logo de seguida, fomos a um festival de Cerveja e Arte no Open Shopping de Jurere. Cerveja não bebi mas deliciei-me com um belo ÁÁçai !
    Regressamos ao hostel pelas 20h e fiz o meu jantar.
    Amanhã vou começar a resolver a minha vida e marcar o voo para o Rio.
    Hoje a minha mãe ligou-me, não consegui atender porque no momento não estava com o tele.

  • Day143

    Aujourd’hui on se lève en douceur après une soirée électronique bien arrosé. La cloque de Benoit ne va pas mieux, il souhaite donc avoir un diagnostique de professionnel afin d’être rassurer. Romain et Benoit partent donc aux urgences vers 12h pendant que le reste du groupe part à la plage. Ils y passeront 4h le temps de faire 4 hôpitaux différents, d’être prise en charge, de faire les soins et de passer à la pharmacie. Benoit avait pris ses affaires dans l’éventualité d’un rapatriement (toujours plus 😅), le verdict s’avérera un peu moins dramatique même si très ennuyeux pour le reste de son voyage. Il ne doit pas exposer ses pieds au soleil, doit tacher de les mettre en hauteur pour accélérer la régénération de la peau et ceux pendant 3jours. Au bout de 5jours il pourra remarcher et porter de nouveau des chaussures et au bout de 10jours il n’y aura à priori plus rien ou presque ! Les autres quant à eux ont passé toute l’après midi à la plage à profiter du beau temps. Romain tentera de nous rejoindre vers 16h sans succès, il profitera donc de deux petites heures seul au calme face au couché de soleil avant de rentrer à l’auberge. Le soir on ira manger une excellente pizza avec delphine une nana rencontrée la veille avant d’aller se coucher pour profiter de notre dernière journée de plage, avant le départ pour Iguazu !Read more
