Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,
Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Yesterday saw the first leg of our adventure. A good run to Heathrow, dropped off the car and after check in we relaxed in the lounge before our 11 hour trip to Rio. Excellent food, plenty to drink even managed a short nap. The journey was soon over and after collecting the cases our driver. as arranged was there to take us onto our first night. UK time was gone 1am (11pm in Rio).

A full moon shone through our window, awesome. We crashed out then awoke to the sound of the dawn chorus. This was soon followed by an incredible sunrise over the mountain opposite, the sun reflecting in the waters of the bay. What a start....

And its only 7am on day one. 2 days in Rio ahead of us - Sugar Loaf mountain, Copacabana & Ipanema are just the start.

Watch this space for more on our Great Adventure.
