Day 35: Our City Tour Went All Wrong

After the excitement of yesterday (I’m still so happy about seeing the Toucan!), today was going to be another busy day as we’d booked a city tour and a tour of the Itaipu Dam – the biggest hydroelectric something something in the world. Not really sure why we booked that,… Keep Reading

Day 33: Two flights, a huge meat lunch and a nap

We’d booked our hotel a five minute walk away from the airport so that when we woke up, we literally just had to roll out of bed, get dressed and go. Our first flight was delayed which had me panicking because our connecting flight only had an hour stop over… Keep Reading

Day 32: Leaving The Island, Back To Rio Again!

Today was a sad day because we left Ilha Grande, and we definitely felt like we could have spent another couple of days here, but the pousada 1) seemed booked up and 2) was expensive. So despite our hangovers, we managed to catch the right boat back to Rio mainland,… Keep Reading

Day 28: A Lie In And Late Night

Today almost didn’t happen. We were so tired and stayed up later than we should have last night, even though we set an alarm so as not to miss breakfast before it finishes at 9.30, we didn’t wake up until 12pm! We obviously needed the sleep, we still hadn’t properly… Keep Reading

Day 27: Big Island Bound

We booked our transfer from Rio to Ilha Grande for 10.30am, reasoning that that should get us there at a reasonable time in the afternoon and we would be able to settle into our Pousada, have a mooch about and have a decent amount of time before dinner – the… Keep Reading

Day 26: Relaxing After the Madness

In case you missed the last line of our last post, we didn’t sleep until 7am last night (this morning). Somehow, we woke up at about 11ish today and were reasonably, deliriously tired. But it was our last full day in Rio and we wanted to make the most of… Keep Reading
