Rose and I will be heading off to Brazil next month (February 2009) to escape the cold and dark English winter and trade it in for some Brazilian sunshine.

I last went to Brazil (Rio and Salvador) back in April 2007 for 2 months. I had a great time and it definitely whet my appetite to return. This time around I am not visiting a girlfriend, I am taking one with me, which puts a different perspective on the whole thing as we will be going together and returning together (hopefully).

Our plans aren’t finalised yet, but we are thinking of travelling for about 5 weeks. Our first port of call will be Sao Paulo where we will meet Rosana’s family and friends. We will most likely catch some of the carnaval, which I am told I will either love or hate. From there on in we will be visiting Caraguatatuba which is on the Sao Paulo coast, north of the city where Rosana’s family have an apartment. I am then hoping we will be able to cruise up and down the coast to see the sights, take some photos and of course do as much surfing as possible.

I am hoping also to return to Rio and fill in the gaps from last time (I hardly saw any sights as I was in the water everyday). Other places on the hit list include:

  • Maresias
  • Islabella
  • Ubatuba
  • Isla Grande
  • Paraty
  • Itamambuca
