Where I stayed

Flag of Brazil  , State of Santa Catarina,
Monday, February 21, 2011

Rio had been a constant party and we were all quite exhausted and looking forward to chilling out a bit...

Florianopolis was a very popular place in Brazil and was visited by many brazilians each year who wished to escape the fast pace of Rio and Sau Paulo... Florianopolis is an island with over 200 beaches...

We got off the bus (11 hours from rio) and was immediately faced with a guy asking us where we wanted to stay, we had heard good things about a hostel called backpackers sunset so told him we wanted to go there... he made a quick phone call and said it was full and pulled out a leaflet fro a place called banana hostel.... you can get screwed over by people like this and it appeared he wanted us to stay at this banana place really bad... the brochure just had photos of parties and the beach so we were concerned that the place itself would have been bad and uncomfy.. the rooms in Mellow Yellow in Rio had been so uncomfortable we were longing for a good bed.... I made the decision to sack the guy off and take a taxi to the backpackers place and try our luck..

Sods law when we arrived it was full so we had to check in at a smaller quiter place 5 mins down the road... gutted.... but atleast the rooms were nice and comfy...

We only had 3 days in Florianopolis so we spent this time on the amazing beaches there and eating at a few nice restaurants near our hostel... the place is packed between Jan - end of Feb so we had missed the busy period.. this was good for a chill out but bad as there was not much to do at night!!
