It’s called: “Motivos para sorrir” (reasons to smile). 🙂 Every week they fill it with good things that happened that brought them smiles, simply things they are grateful for. I think it is a brilliant idea because it makes us see how much we […]

Sleeping under the sky of southern hemisphere

Posted Posted in Brazil

One of the top “to do” things here in Brazil was of course seeing the skies of southern hemisphere again, in addition also seeing the sunrise and camp in the wild.

From Santinho to Moçambique beach

Posted Posted in Brazil

On mid-day sunny Saturday I found myself walking on the sand of Santinho beach.
