    December 14, 2016 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    We did a one day trip to the 120km upper north located famous town Búzios. Even tough it was cloudy, the town and the beaches were really beautiful. It must be incredible when it's good weather! There was a fantastic boat ride included, where we had the chance to swim at 3 different spots. We would definitely recommend to stay there for one night to enjoy the lovely small fisher town by night and to have more time to relax at the calm beaches!Read more

    Búzios und Cabo Frio

    June 15, 2016 in Brazil ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Búzios ist ein für brasilianische Verhältnisse ziemlich chicer Badeort mit vielen teuren Boutiquen und einer hübschen Strandpromenade.
    Brigitte Bardot hat sich hier in den 60ern mit ihrem brasilianischen Freund versteckt... Heute gibt es an der Promenade eine Statue von ihr. Wir beide haben uns ganz schnell angefreundet, haben ja auch schließlich fast das gleiche Outfit an ;-)Read more

    Armação dos Búzios, Brazil

    January 17, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Today is a new port for us, and also for the captain, as we discovered in conversation last night. This is the first time he’s brought the boat here. Armação dos Búzios is a small beachy peninsula on the approach to Rio. It’s not a port, exactly, and there’s certainly nowhere big enough for us to dock, so the ship basically anchors out in the bay and we’re then shuttled ashore in the lifeboats. So today should involve a little more drama than usual.

    We’re booked onto a morning tour today, involving a trip around the bay in a schooner followed by a swimming opportunity. Here’s hoping the water is warm!

    It isn’t! That said, by the third time we get in the water, it feels quite warm. However, I’m not sure how much the alcohol helps with that!

    This place is stunningly beautiful. The pace of life looks very leisurely here. Although, someone mentioned that Brazil is on national holiday at the moment, so maybe I’m getting the wrong impression.

    After the schooner cruise, we find a little bar in town for lunch and pray they’ll have a bathroom in which we can change out of our wet clothes. It does have a toilet, but it is the smallest space imaginable, so changing anything at all is challenging!

    After lunch we head back to the boat to clean up and cool down. We’ll be leaving at 5pm tonight to make the short trip to Rio de Janeiro.
