Pool side, tour of the favelas and a new hotel

07/06/2017

And we’re back to yet another random day in Rio De Janeiro in Brazil. I woke up super early to catch the sunrise and was not disappointed! This mornings plan was to spend some time by the pool and then go on a tour in the favela near us. I was still deciding whether to go or not as we had heard gunshots there the night before.. We had breakfast as soon as the kitchen opened. Granola with yoghurt, fresh…

A meaty dinner at Fogo de Chão

24/05/2017

We arrived in Rio on a Monday afternoon and went straight to our hotel (which I will show you soon, promise). It got dark pretty quickly and as we were still new to the city and area we didn’t want to walk around just yet. A friend of mine had recommended the restaurant Fogo de Chão a while back and so we decided to go there for dinner. We got ready in our amazing suite and I dressed up for the…

Family

23/05/2017

Parts of his wonderful family.  I’m from a pretty “cold” country where physical affection is, in my opinion, limited.. even from family members. To then visit a family like his, where I was flooded with kisses and hugs as soon as we met, was wonderful but new. Every single time someone entered the house or left, they’d kiss and hug, and you could see that it wasn’t by force. It was the most natural thing in the world and it…

A half day in Mineiros

15/05/2017

Our days in Mineiros would start with a breakfast around 7am. Why so early? Well it’s only a 4 hour time difference but it was quite nice going to bed early and wake up early (grannies). After breakfast we’d spend time with family and chat before it was time for lunch. I had made a list of various foods I wanted to try and today they had made one of those dishes! The yellow dish below is Moqueca de camarão.…

House and ground tour

15/05/2017

These Brazil posts will be published a bit sporadically as I am still finding my feet after our holiday. I’ve struggled getting back into a good routine and it annoys me massively, but hey ho. Here’s a little tour of G’s grandparents house which I absolutely fell in love with. Wild parrots. Can’t believe how excited I was to see wild parrots! Many breakfasts served here 🙂 Avocado trees!!! More cute birds. This one lived inside the tree. Had to…
