    Our not so grand arrival

    A travel blog entry by kayclark123 on Aug 06, 2014


    So, we have been here for 4 days now but only managing to do my first entry now! The adapters we bought with us don't work for the plugs in Brazil so had to go shopping for one that did yesterday.
    Anyway, I'll start from the beginning. Airports are stressful at the best of times. Even without being searched, which we were, twice! Once at heathrow where I had to empty my entire bag and re pack it and again at Charles de guelle (paris) when Rob set the scanner off as he ...

The plans changed slightly when we got to the bus station and found that all the buses were fully booked until later on in the afternoon.

From Paraty we took a quick (and very fast) bus to Trindade (our final destination) down an incredibly bumpy and twisty road that felt more like a rollercoaster than anything!! ...

    It was great to finally get to Rio. Deep down I had this feeling that I would be very happy to spend a couple of weeks here in Brazil. We got a Taxi and I thought that he was going to kill us the way he was driving but we finally got to the apartment. The area kind of looked dodgy, only because Melbourne is totally different. It was great to see the way the Brazilians embrace life. ~ FRANK After 29 hours of flying, we arrived ...

    We lost internet connection in Ipenema Flat over the weekend. Well, it said it was connected, but we certainly could not get it to respond to anything. Hence, my absence from the blog. This post will be a random catch up to lead up to the next leg of our adventure.

    The same day we toured the cemetery, we took a taxi up the hill through Santa Teresa neighborhood to have an early dinner at a wonderful restaurant called AprazÝvel ...
