Praia dos Carneiros is an amazing beach in terms of beauty. But unfortunately the local infrastructure is quite limited. Unpaved muddy streets and not many options as for shopping and restaurants. Anyway, sometimes too much infrastructure spoils the place, so let’s not complain!
First trip after the beginning of the pandemic. This was the second time we visited São Francisco do Sul. This time we stayed in Praia da Enseada. Unfortunately the weather was not that good, but we managed to have some enjoyable moments on the beach.
One of the things I like the most about traveling is discovering new places. Nowadays with so many tourists traveling everywhere, it’s not so easy to find a new destination, a place no one has told you about. So, whenever I get the chance to go to a place I have not heard about, I like to take my chances. I keep my expectations down in order not to get frustrated so easily and I search for the bare minimum information not to spoil the experience. And then I go..
Sometimes we are unlucky, but sometimes we are lucky! San Gregorio de Polanco was one of these lucky strikes. A hidden gem.
A few days in the Amazon in a little village called Alter do Chão, which is located midway between Manaus (AM) and Belém (PA). This place reveals a different Amazon. A place where the river plays the role of a sea. That’s why people call it the Brazilian Caribbean.
Sometimes we get that feeling that our closet is cluttered up with old stuff. For instance, quite recently, I realized I had way too many pairs of shoes. It was taking me too long to get dressed in the morning, just because I had to find a pair of shoes to wear to work in the middle of all the pairs of shoes I had. I had all my shoes crammed up in a small space inside the closet. Terrible! Those who live in small apartments like me probably know what I mean. Then I made up my mind to get rid of some of the old ones. But then you get that nostalgic feeling, “how can I throw them away? They are still okay..” Then you remember that you bought that pair while traveling abroad.
The solution was simple.. I took a photo of some of the pairs of shoes that actually had a meaning to me so that I could finally get rid of them and at the same time keep a memento.
