Day 100 of our RTW was spent in Florianopolis Brazil. To get to Brazil, we took an 18 hour bus ride from Montevideo Uruguay. It was a very long ride and when we arrived, we went to the grocery store and bought sushi.
Because we are traveling for long term, most of the time spent in Florianopolis was spent in our apartment where I served my clients and virtually attended a mastermind event that was happening in Chicago. Technology is so cool.
During our first week, we took a tour of the island with a private guide. We had lunch outside near the water (Florianopolis is an island) overlooking mainland Brazil.
Here’s a Vine video showing our table and the view:
Spotted a cow on a beach near several hostels while visiting several beaches during our tour.
On another day, we went trekking. You can read more about my trekking experience here: http://ontaskva.com/3-thoughts-from-a-first-time-trekker
This is the view from a lookout while trekking.
And this is Pântano do Sul Beach, where we ended our trekking tour.
Another night we went to have a drink (Brazilian soda) and watch samba. A six second clip:
Sandboarding is also something we did on a another day. You can view a video and read more about sandboarding in Florianopolis Brazil here: http://ontaskva.com/sandboarding-in-florianopolis-brazil
Of course when we travel we need to eat. We ate most of our meals in our apartment so we went to the grocery store often. You can read more about interesting finds at the grocery store in Florianopolis Brazil here: http://ontaskva.com/interesting-finds-grocery-store-florianopolis-brazil
When we visited Uruguay we had mermelada de zapallo (pumpkin jam). Here, they have a coconut spread which I found tastes really good on a piece of bread with sliced banana.
I had a great time here. It was very difficult to communicate due to not speaking Portuguese but from what we experienced, the people here are friendly. It was June when we visited which in the southern hemisphere is winter. But even though it was winter, it was warm and sunny with the only exception being the last day when the sun disappeared and it was overcast.
