Carnaval Time!

Carnaval Time!

12th February 2013   Every year at this time, the best place to party indeed has to be Rio. It’s not just confined to one building, oh no. But the WHOLE City, taking place over 5 days. Phew, that’s a lot of partying! But we needed to have a big...
Meeting J to the C

Meeting J to the C

12th February 2013   Feeling suitably suntanned from our day at Ipanema Beach yesterday, we were ready to do another cultural icon of Rio. We’ve already done the Lapa Steps so…..this means the big guy.   Yes, the big guy. I’m sure...

Ipanema Beach Suntan

11th February 2013   After another night of partying at Lapa and Ipanema Beach in the evening last night, Auston, Dave and I duly returned to Ipanema Beach the next day to get some much-needed sun. After all, I’m in Rio and I still look like Casper the...
Lapa Steps

Lapa Steps

10th February 2013   So it was about time to do something cultural in Rio de Janeiro for a change. Partying too much the last 2 nights had certainly taken its toll on us especially after the whole Banda de Ipanema Parade the previous day. So taking the courage to...

Blogging in Rio!

Blogging in Rio!

7th – 8th February 2013   I must confess. I didn’t really do much the first few days I was in Rio. Or rather I didn’t take much photos. It was because after reading horror stories from people and guidebooks, I didn’t want to risk my...
Sleepy Parati

Sleepy Parati

5th-6th February 2013   So we finally, FINALLY arrived in Parati after an epic bus journey after we got lost in the middle of nowhere and had no idea if we would survive with success to get to Parati that day. Great to say that we did. Phew! Arriving at 10.30pm,...

Lost in Brazil…

4th -5th February 2013   So as we left Foz de Iguazu without any hitches, we were on our way to Sao Paolo that would take us overnight to get there. Despite a sassy brazilian woman sitting in front of us calling us idiots repeatedly (we’re not idiots...
Foz de Iguazu – the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls

Foz de Iguazu – the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls

4th February 2013   Rejuvenated from our sleep after the border crossing madness that took place last night, we had breakfast round the pool. We remembered being in the pool after a few too many caipirinhas last night and somehow ended up teaching each other our...
Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina!

Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina!

3rd February 2013   Okay, I just had to have that as a title. How can I not?!   Yes, as my last post tantalized as we finished the day in the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls, we were already on our way to Brazil.   Settling ourselves in the bus bay...
