The epic boat journey - Manuas to Tabatinga

Tuesday, 7 Aug 2012 | Views [2450] | Comments [3]

I have been struggling to think of a way to describe this boat journey. It's 7 days on a tiny vessel with about 100 other people, all sleeping in a very close proximity to your hammock. All your stuff is laid out on the floor and you basically have ... Read more >

The jungle adventures

Wednesday, 1 Aug 2012 | Views [1202]

When you arrive to Manaus you really don't get a feeling of being in a middle of a jungle. It's a very modern and huge city with a pleasant centre and some good museums. But its mostly a place to get supplies for the jungle or boat trip. We ... Read more >

I see donkeys everywhere - Jericoacoara and Fortaleza

Wednesday, 1 Aug 2012 | Views [1437]

  Getting to Jericoacoara seemed like a perfect plan: bus from Pipa to Natal, overnight bus from Natal to Fortaleza, another bus from Fortaleza to Jeri in the morning. It did work out but ended up being a painful 24 hour journey and the night ... Read more >

Wednesday, 1 Aug 2012 | Views [1745]

It was heartbreaking stuff saying good bye to Kilombo but with my visa running out it was inevitable that I had to leave. So I jumped on the bus to Salvador where I enjoyed my last night in Bahia. It was celebrated in style with a street roda ... Read more >

The return to Kilombo

Wednesday, 13 Jun 2012 | Views [667]

  And so it's already been nearly a month of a quiet life at Kilombo. The time just seems to fly here even though on the surface not much seems to happen.   As soon as I arrived I really felt like part of the community here. It was ... Read more >

Saturday, 10 Mar 2012 | Views [1111]

On the way to Ilha do Mel I quickly passed through Paranagua . I expected it to be a busy port with little charm but it turned out to have quite a beautiful water front lined up with some old colonial buildings.     The boat trip ... Read more >

Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [1487]

Nossa!... Carnival in Sao Paulo.

Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [942]

I didn't want to go to Sao Paulo. I didn't want to leave the beach but the imminent start of the carnival meant that I could no longer stay at Ubatuba . It's probably for the best as I can almost see myself 1 month on and still lying on the same ... Read more >

Blissful days at Ubatuba

Saturday, 25 Feb 2012 | Views [750]

  After leaving Ouro Preto I jumped on a bus to Rio to meet with Annika and once again hit the beach... It's probably the slowest journey in the world but I finally reached Rio in the afternoon. Resigned to settling in and waiting for the ... Read more >

  It's really hard to describe my time at Kilombo. It's such a special place. I didn't really have any expectations as didn't really read anything about the place apart from few email exchanges with Mestre.       ... Read more >

Ihla de pagode... and capoeira

Thursday, 19 Jan 2012 | Views [1052]

Leaving Lencois was a bit tough. It's a really beautiful place with so much to do that you can easily spend a month there. I was also dreading the overnight bus journey to Salvador followed by capoeira training later on that day. Luckily I managed ... Read more >

Am finally on the road and although its only been a week, it's been pretty hectic...and amazing. Journey to Salvador was long, the overnight stay at the Rio airport was not at all what I dreamed of but I had no choice but to settle into a night of ... Read more >
