Rio 8 days
Rio de Janeiro, a beautiful & intimidating city offering the best and worst of what South America has to offer, we were both nervous and excited touching down on a new continent.
lha Grande days
We had to skip this stop due to a bad weather forecast :(
Paraty 4 days
A small and lively colonial coastal town set in a bay surrounded by islands and mountainous Atlantic forest. It is also famed for the production of Brazil’s most popular spirit cachaca, the main ingredient in Caipirinhas!
Sao Paulo 4 days
A monster, São Paulo is home to 20 million fiercely proud paulistanos. We stayed in Villa Madellena and loved the neighborhood feel of the place. Low rise two story buildings in a hilly area with a high rise backdrop lend it a unique neighborhood feel and the limitless cafes, bars, boutique shops & restaurants would rival the offering of any city in the world. Add a sunny warm winter and it's hard to beat.

Stop two on our way back up north after a trip to Salento
A day trip and welcome escape from Medellin to some accessible swimming spots. A steep ascent up a 654ft granite rock surrounded by water in a man made reservoir in what looks like a natural archieapelago offer wonderful views and the colourful town is worth a few hours exploring too.
