Next morning we hit the road for Florianopolis which is set on an island just off the coast of Brazil, home for the night was a sleepy fishing village on the Eastern side of the island. We were all in agreement that this little spot of paradise was going straight on the list of places to come back to, a little gem! One night is all ...
