    Praia de golfinhos

    June 9, 2016 in Brazil

    We wake in the morning and have a lovely breakfast and decide to book for one more night. There is something about places in Brazil that really draw you in but there are still a few more i really want to see x We meet three Israelis in the hostel and enjoy exchanging places weve been to and where we should go. They say they are heading to the beach and asked if we want to join them but when they arent ready in an hour we head out on our own and once again walk along praia de golfinhos to the far end but its not possible to walk across to madeiro as the tide is already in to far so we hire a seat and Mark stands back and watches as they toss the ball across the sand, desperate for them to ask him to join in. He even trys talking to the guys who are stood on the side line and eventually is asked to join the game. He stands on the touchline barking his orders and lets the young guys do the running , you would think he was the coach not a player, i have a little chuckle to myself and lie back on my sunlounger enjoying the view dipping in and out of the sea. We go back to the hostel with a few beers with Mark nursing his sand grazed
    Knees after going in for an immense tackle on one of the Argentinian guys who werent happy. Mark for some reason gets drunk really quickly but is adamant that he wants something to eat and on arriving back at the hostel Rosie exlplains she is imable to cook tonight, but will cook tomorrow so we will have to go out. Thank god for the food bar at the top of the hill cause Mark can barely walk due to the caipirinhas hes had throughout the day. They have a horrible way of coming in and knocking you off your feet. Burger and manioc chips bought is a stumble back to the hostel where i go to bed and Mark lies listening to his tunes with his earphones on.

    Pipa

    February 17, 2017 in Brazil

    Pipa is paradise.

    After a 9 hour bus/ metro/ bus/ collectivo ride to Pipa we were happy to have arrived. The journey was quite funny actually as the guy in the collectivo was trying to stuff our big back packs into the boot and then as we were driving he realised the boot had opened and the bags had fallen out, so they had to go back to find them.

    When we arrived at our hostel, Lagarto na Banana, we accidentally walked right into a yoga session not realising and were saying 'why is it so quiet here??' really loudly whilst everyone was in deep meditative trances haha. Everyone at the hostel is super friendly, it's a really great atmosphere here and we've met loads of nice people.

    On our first full day we went on a day trip with the hostel to an island. It was about an hour's drive in this retro little Volkswagen campervan and the scenery was beautiful and so remote. We got a boat to this little island and spent the day under this tree, sunbathing, swimming, and eating grilled vegetables. It was so relaxing and when the boat came to pick us up and take us back I really didn't want to go. After we drove back to the centre of Pipa and had some acai (yum) and then drove to this huge sand dune to watch the sunset. It really was the perfect end to a perfect day and it has definitely been one of my favourite days of my trip so far.

    That night we went out for dinner to a really great Japanese restaurant and then had some drinks and played cards and ended up at a traditional Brazilian dancing event. I even ended up dancing with this Brazilian guy and actually I wasn't as terrible as I first thought.

    The next day I was quite hungover but we just went to the beach and I sat in the shade on my own haha and read my book. I quite enjoyed being alone as I've been with people 24/7 for the last two weeks and sometimes it's nice just to have a bit of space. In the evening we chilled, played more cards and socialised with everyone from the hostel.

    In the morning I got up for the 8am yoga session which was relaxing but really difficult at some points! After we ate breakfast and fed the leftover fruit to the monkeys, they are adorable. In the day we got a group of us and went to what is known as 'dolphin beach' because dolphins swim there and we even saw a few jumping out of the waves. It was a really amazing day and we played heads up and tennis on the beach. After I tried to smash out a 5km run but was pretty exhausted.

    In the evening a group of us from the hostel went out together to a few bars and also a salsa dancing event. I ended up going to bed at 3am which was great as i needed to get up at 7am to catch my transfer to Natal airport.

    I was really sad to leave such a great group of people behind, especially Lizzie as we get on so well and have had a such a good time together. We are definitely going to meet up once we are back in London though for some drinks, and hopefully I will see some of the others in Rio for Carnival.

    Pipa- diesmal für eine ganze Nacht

    October 10, 2016 in Brazil

    Da uns Pipa so gut gefallen hat, haben wir uns kurzerhand dazu entschlossen von Sonntag auf Montag dort zu bleiben und ein Zimmer in Magia de Terra zu mieten. Außerdem sollte es an dem Abend -laut unserem Thai- Restaurant Besitzer Matthias- eine spezielle eher traditionelle Veranstaltung geben, die man gesehen haben muss.
    So war es auch. Gegen zehn Uhr versammelten sich hauptsächlich Locals jeden Alters auf einem etwas versteckten Vorplatz, um bei Live Musik und nicht zu wenig Caipirinhas Forro zu tanzen. Forro ist dem Samba etwas ähnlich und sieht echt sexy aus, wenn mans kann. Es wurde fast ausschließlich als Paar getanzt. Als auch ich aufgefordert wurde, wollte ich erst nicht, aber dann habe ich es doch probiert und bin kläglich gescheitert hahaha. Ihr wisst ja, dass sich mein Rhytmus Gefühl eher in Grenzen hält. Trotzdem hat es riesiegen Spaß gemacht. Vor allem den anderen zu zu sehen, wie sie so darin aufgegangen sind, war faszinierend. Alle hatten auf jeden Fall mega viel Spaß und die Atmosphäre war toll.
    Nach dem letzten Lied war das Spektakel abrupt vorbei. Man veranschiedete sich und ging nach Hause oder in die nächste Bar.
    Wir machten uns langsam auch auf den Weg ins Bett.

    Das war ein coooles Erlebnis !

    Am nächsten Tag ging es nochmal nach Tibau do Sul. Eigentlich wollten wir kiten gehen, aber da der Wind nicht ausreichte und sich die Kiteschule nicht mehr gemeldet hatte, sind wir statt dessen in das schöne Restaurant gefahren. Und als wir ankamen konnte man mehrere Delfine beobachten, die im Fluss Fische jagten. Endlich hatten wir also das Glück die Delfine von nahem zu sehen. :))

    Conhaú und Pipa trennt ein kleiner, aber mit dem Auto nicht durchfahrbarer Fluss. Um dennoch an das andere Ufer zu gelangen, nutzt man eine sogenannte „Balsa“ bzw. Fähre. Von einer Fähre, wie man sich das vorstellt, kann man aber nicht wirklich sprechen. Es sieht eher aus wie ein zu groß geratenes Floß, zusammengebaut aus den Teilen, die man gerade so zu Verfügung hatte. Es war also ein kleines Abenteuer! Um das Floß zu bewegen hat der „Kapitän“ einen langen Stock, mit dem er sich und das Floß und alles, was da so drauf ist, vom Boden abdrückt und lenkt. Das war auf jeden Fall ein unbeschreiblich cooles Gefühl sich so ohne Motor, aber mit Auto zu bewegen.

    Auf der anderen Seite angekommen, ging es in Richtung Pipa. Ohne Navi und Karte haben wir uns natürlich erstmal verfahren. Im Nachhinein hätte uns nichts Besseres passieren können, weil wir dadurch eine sooooo traumhafte Stelle mit Blick über das Meer gefunden haben. Dieser Blick war echt unbeschreiblich schön.

    So jetzt aber zu Pipa. Pipa ist überall bekannt. Bekannt für seine tollen Strände, seine Vielfältigkeit und seinen Charme. Nicht verwunderlich also, dass dieser kleine Ort viele Touristen anzieht. Es wimmelt nur so von Geschäften, Bars, Restaurants und Poussadas. Doch alles ist sehr geschmackvoll und kreativ. Ich glaube, dass wird auf den Fotos ganz gut deutlich.
    Wir sind total beeindruckt durch die Hauptstraße gelaufen. Soooo viele Bikinis habe ich noch nie auf einem Haufen gesehen. Mit der riesigen Auswahl waren Mama und ich erstmal ziemlich überfordert, so dass wir an einem der 6! Strände (Praia do Centro) erstmal einen Cocktail trinken gegangen sind. Die waren vielleicht lecker !!

    Bei Sonnenuntergang fuhren wir außen rum- ohne die Balsa zu nutzten- wieder zurück. Uns wurde zwar versichert, dass die letzte „Fähre“ um 22:00 Uhr gehen würde, doch wir waren uns nicht sicher, ob wir das mit unseren -naja sagen wir mal teilweise vorhandenen portugiesisch Kenntnissen- richtig verstanden hatten. Gleichzeitig hatten wir Bedenken wegen der Flut und den Weg durch die Dunkelheit nicht zu finden (da ist nämlich außer Wald nicht viel). Außen rum dauerte es zwar etwas länger, aber das war ja kein Problem.

    Praia de Amor

    June 10, 2016 in Brazil

    When i get up for breakfast in the morning Rose the owner asks me if i enjoyed Marks karaoke last night i laugh as i didnt hear a thing and she says he was singing Coldplay, but whe i turned spotify off on the tablet hed been listening to Elvis. Rosie an i laugh when she is sure it wasnt Elvis. Mark totally misses breakfast an eventually gets out of bed at about just after 11. Once again we agree to go to the beach together with a Swiss girl called Asia that we have met in the hostel we sit waiting fot the Israelis but when they are ready they walk straght out the hostel so the three of us head back to the restaurant we ate at the other day and i enjoyed the best thai curry ive had here. We walk the remainding way to the Praia de Amor and take shade underneath the rock face, Mark makes a sand woman while i go and bathe in a rock pool along the beach where its totally surronded with rock with the sea just allowing in litlle waves. The sea on this beach is perfect for surfing but the pool is so warm that when i go into the sea it feels cold for the first time since ive been here. After a short while here we walk back to centro beach and the walk up to the mirador bar. Tonight we sit at a different table and the sunset is still amazing. This really is a special place. We walk back to the hostel and Rosies dog has had to go to the vet So we make our way down for something to eatRead more
