After 3 nights in Rio it was time to move. We tried to book our tickets to Paraty last night but internet sites in Brazil are a joke. So we decided to wing it and pack up all our kit and head to the bus station. Little did we know this was a very popular route with the locals and tourists. Arriving at the bus station at 10am we were told there was …
Paolo, Simone and I all jumped in. The water was deliciously tepid! The waves gently rolled and crushed; not a rip! Couldn't have been a more ideal place to learn surfing!
While swimming, diving under as well as flowing with the surf waves, the vista of mountains and the stretch of beach was just breathtaking! And I breathed in as deep as I can while praying to the gods of the ocean to bless me. I love this place!
We moved on. Guide once ...

You sit at the top where two locals give you a push and then slide along about 100 ft of smooth rock surface with water flowing down it into a pool. Sometimes you would gain too much speed and start turning as you slid. There were some locals doing crazy things like gliding the whole way down on their feet. Some tourists tried to ...
Arriving in Paraty was once again a stark contrast, a small colonial town with an abundance of character. The bus arrived late in the afternoon and I had a wander around town before heading back to the hostel. The evening spiralled out of control as I ended up in a bar which cost the equivalent of 70p for entry. It wasn't worth that much in all honesty, but it made for a great night out with the lads.

At around 3pm, the boat headed back to Paraty Bay.
The weather started to turn and we could see storm clouds heading towards us from inland. So Maggie and I set off in search of some fruit and other essentials before heading home.

Its a pretty nice place. A new owner has recently taken it over and they are really trying to improve the place, but it is a little rough around the edges currently (nothing major, just a little worn). The people who run it are really lovely and helpful and I'm sure that once they have had it for a few more months it will look great. The breakfast was incredible - it ran the entire lenght of a pretty big table - loads of stuff.
