Now comes the most awaited moment in Adventure Bloggers – the trail inside the canyon of Itaimbezinho, in Aparados da Serra National Park. The adventure had been on my wishing list for ages, and in December I finally entered the huge crack and saw the slopes upwards.
On the environment week I want to show one of the most beautiful places in the world – Amazon Rainforest
In the northern border of Brazil there is a mysterious mountain where you only reach by foot or helicopter. It was 90 km hiking in six days with no comfort and totally integrated in nature.
In September, I spent a week in Tocantins for the Adventure Bloggers Jalapão. It was just what I expected, but better: I found comfort I did not think of and friends in total sync. I already knew the bloggers and the trip brought us even closer; Mauro, the guide, and all the team in Korubo were exceptional and I already miss them and the new traveling friends we made there.
Monument to mothers, by the sculptor Antônio Caringi in 1959. Located in Cel. Pedro Osório Sq. in Pelotas, it displays the image of his wife, the poet Noemi de Assumpção Osório.
What I really wanted to do in Bonito was to dive in crystal clear rivers and swim with freshwater fish, an experience missing on my trips. I started in Barra do Rio Sucuri.
On top of the lost world I found the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen in my life. Buques, mandalas, weather-beaten trees, the noise of running water, crystals sprouting, flowers blooming in the rocks, sandy and muddy winding paths, puddles and rocks full of meaning.
The neighboring town of Búzios (RJ) and its nightlife is bigger, more popular and has more beautiful beaches. Even though the water is freezing cold, I loved Cabo Frio. One edge invades the sea with rocks and mountains like many others in Brazil; the difference is the thin white sand and the clear blue waters.
The capital of Espírito Santo was the destination, and as I also wanted to enjoy the beaches, I ended up in the neighbour city Vila Velha – in Costa Beach, to be more specific. It is considered the best one by friends and travel blogs.
Poço Azul is a must for those visiting Chapada Diamantina. A crystal water-filled cave where it is possible to see the rocky bottom, even at 16m deep.
