Easy Rider

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Travel

I wish this post was about my personal experience in discovering USA on a two wheeled motor vehicle but it’s only about people here in Brazil who seem to enjoy using all sorts of bikes (motorised or not). I remember Bali being full of these moppeds, people using them 3, 4 or even five at […]

The Island

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Travel

This destination was highly recommended by all guides and previous visitors. Ilha Grande… The big Island… not much of imagination when naming fabulous places like this one! Paradise like beaches, deep forest trails and to top it up, no car nor motor vehicle! (except for firemen, garbage pickers, paramedics and police). I was told that […]

The Beach

I know i wrote a little about Recife and Pernambuco already, but beaches are the main reason people get to that warm part of the south american continent so I thought I could add pictures showing the best of them. This is also the place to mention how fond of beach life Brazilian people are. […]

Land of the Blind

Blind… this is how I feel right now! my faithful camera is out of commission! So much for keeping you all up to date with my Brazilian photographic quest! The day was to be enjoyed as much as all of them for the last 2 weeks. A nice 2 hours trek in the untouched Atlantic forest […]

The Grandfather

What makes one go from handsome 47 years old husband (young hubby!) to an old ancestor? It goes without saying that at no time my fellings were considered in producing an extra life in this world of ours… lucky that I am cool and happy about it! My  oldest son is now a father and […]

Some like it hot

When we booked this trip to Brazil, the objective was to fit as many places as we could afford within the limited time allowed by paid holidays. The idea of the south American continent being in “winter months” was a bit of a concern and I surely did not want to end up spending time […]

Stranded!

Greatest pleasures are sometimes the simplest! Mine at this moment is to lay on the bed of the little beach poussada we are renting for the next 10 days. It’s 20:15, the night fell 3 hours ago and just before it did, we were driving, searching for both ATM and some place to have diner. […]

Waterworld

3 days in the tri-frontier region of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay and we saw more water than we did for a whole year in London (that includes of course the very few rainy day that we indeed have back there in England!) We started on a cloudy day by the Brazilian side of Cataratas de […]

Le Salaire de la Peur

19:30 local time, first time ever on Uncle Sam’s land of endless possibilities (I quote all the boys and girls here on our old continent dreading to obtain a green card and be part of the dream). The sun is low on horizon and the New York signature skyscrapers are drenched by the golden light […]

Brazil

Shame on me for not blogging during my balineese trip two years ago… Starting even before we are gone to the airport may prevent from making the same mistake! So, here we are, hours before our journey across the pond, browsing through the web wealth of information, trying to get a preview of what awaits […]
